Captain James T. Kirk: Captain’s log, stardate 9522.6: I’ve never trusted Klingons, and I never will. I could never forgive them for the death of my boy. It seems to me our mission to escort the Chancellor of the Klingon High Council to a peace summit is problematic at best. Spock says this could be an historic occasion, and I’d like to believe him, but how on earth can history get past people like me?
The director Nicholas Meyer returns to the chair for this third film he’s helmed. Its a movie about global events, environmental change, and prejudice.
Here is the basic plot…On the eve of retirement, Kirk and McCoy are charged with assassinating the Klingon High Chancellor and imprisoned. The Enterprise crew must help them escape to thwart a conspiracy aimed at sabotaging the last best hope for peace.
You have all the favorites for this film, William Shatner, Leonard Nemoy, Deforest Kelly, James Dohan, George Tekai, Walter Koenig (Whom I have met), Nichelle Nichols, and Kim Cattrall as well as Micheal Dorn. Oh and the villian is Christopher Plummer, who plays a Khan like Klingon. Quoting Shakesphere and everything…
Wonderful stuff as well as top notch acting for one of the best Star Trek movies in my opinion, next to Wrath of Khan. Cliff Eldelman composed the score and has done an amazing job with it.
So you can find the score on Amazon.
You can also find it on ITunes.
