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.
The Borg travel back in time intent on preventing Earth's first contact with an alien species. Captain Picard and his crew pursue them to ensure that Zefram Cochrane makes his maiden flight reaching warp speed.
The Enterprise is diverted to the Romulan homeworld Romulus, supposedly because they want to negotiate a peace treaty. Captain Picard and his crew discover a serious threat to the Federation once Praetor Shinzon plans to attack Earth.
After an explosion on their moon, the Klingons have an estimated 50 years before their ozone layer is completely depleted, and they all die. They have only one choice - to make peace with the Federation, which will mean an end to 70 years of conflict. Captain James T. Kirk and crew are called upon to help in the negotiations because of their experience with the Klingons. Peace talks don't quite proceed, and Kirk and McCoy are convicted of assassinating the Klingon High Chancellor, and imprisoned on Rura Penthe, a snowy hard-labor prison camp. Will they manage to escape? And will there ever be peace with the Klingons?Written by

The painting in Spock's stateroom is a copy of "Adam et Eve chassés du Paradis" by Marc Chagall (1961). See more »
Right after the first torpedo hits the Klingon ship we see Klingons sitting at a table. Above them a large hanging light is swinging but on the table we see a tall mug sliding across the table. In a spaceship with artificial gravity emanating from the floor, the angle of pull would not change if the entire ship we to move. The downward force of the artificial gravity will most with everything else attached to the floor and therefore the items on the table would not have a 'low side' of the table to slide to. This was done perhaps to give the movie more of a sea battle feel like in the original series. See more »

The DVD Special Edition includes all the new scenes from the home video releases, and a few new minor changes to certain scenes and effects exclusive to this DVD.
There is a new wide shot of Scotty reading the blueprints of the USS Enterprise-A in the dining hall.
Valeris' interrogation scene has been entirely reedited. There are now close up shots of Kirk and McCoy when they speak their lines instead of being in wide shots. When Spock and Valeris name a particular conspirator, the face of that person briefly appears in a flashback like style.
This is a taut political thriller that rivals Dune for impact, if not for complexity. The issues explored here are both timely and universal. Somehow, this mixes the Star Trek mythos with commentary on the Cold War, race relations and military down-sizing. It is indescribable how cool this movie is.
