STAR TREK IV: THE VOYAGE HOME (Theatrical Release USA 1986)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home—much improved over the first three movies—presents a worthy watch despite the awkwardness of using whales from the past to communicate with an alien in the future. The question arises about the communication between the two species and is not adequately addressed within this story. The characters have been fully drawn from previous films so that they are deeply familiar. This movie creates a desire to see the sequel, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier.

Storyline

Captain Kirk and his crew go back in time to bring two whales into the future to communicate with aliens who speak the same language.
