Memorable Quotes and Dialog:
"Kirk to Enterprise."
- Admiral James T. Kirk (William Shatner)
Star Trek II is a very satisfying space adventure, closer in spirit and format to the popular TV series than to its big-budget predecessor. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- It was Star Trek II that put the franchise on the right track as the spirit of Gene Roddenberry's 60s television series was harnessed to spectacular effect.
Rating: 4/5 -- This is hands-down the best Trek flick made so far. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Leonard Nimoy has rarely been so moving. Full Review
A brisk, handsomely designed film in which its hardware, sturdy as it is, never overwhelms its humanity. Full Review

...A very satisfying space adventure....Bound to captivate 'Trek' fans and with premiere special effects to attract other space [picture] enthusiasts...
The sensation we get watching this film is that we have been invited to visit some people we barely know and who are not very interesting. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review

While out on routine training maneuvers, a starship encounters a powerful and supposedly exiled foe from the distant past: Khan. Only Kirk can stop the Moby Dick-quoting, vengeance-crazed genius from bringing about universal destruction in this warp-speed thrill ride. A continuation of the plotline begun in episode 24 of the original series, "The Space Seed."
Khan, a genetically engineered "superman" prone to megalomaniacal delusions, was exiled years ago to the barren planet Ceti Alpha 5. He blames Admiral Kirk for his hard fate, as well as for his son's death, and vows revenge. When Commander Chekov mistakenly beams down to Khan's lair, the villain finally has a means of escape. Using a parasitic creature that allows him to control the minds of his victims, Khan seizes command of the Starship Reliant. From there he hopes to lure Kirk to his death, using equipment stolen from an experimental research project. These devices allow him to trigger something known as the "Genesis Effect" -- a means of generating new life from existing matter. Khan plans to use the creation machines as weapons, because the same fire of life that creates new worlds must destroy what existed before. Kirk and crew need all the courage and cunning they can muster in order to save their friend and silence Khan forever.
