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.
The brash James T. Kirk tries to live up to his father's legacy with Mr. Spock keeping him in check as a vengeful Romulan from the future creates black holes to destroy the Federation one planet at a time.
The most acclaimed Star Trek adventure of all time with an important message. It is the 23rd century, and a mysterious alien probe is threatening Earth by evaporating the oceans and destroying the atmosphere. In their frantic attempt to save mankind, Admiral Kirk and his crew must time travel back to 1986 San Francisco where they find a world of punk, pizza and exact-change buses that are as alien to them as anything they have ever encountered in the far-off reaches of the galaxy. William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy return as Kirk and Spock, along with the entire Star Trek crew.Written by

Error in temporal physics, possibly inherent to the time travel sub-genre of fiction: Even if it were possible to "go into" the past of 1986, the world of Kirk and Spock and the Enterprise would have automatically not existed, and therefore, even the smallest changes they made at the Institute and their dealings with others would have created a different time-line, even if they could precisely calculate when and how to "return" to "their time," their world and everything else in the galaxy would have been completely different. It is impossible to go back in time without altering the future that follows it. Even worse, McCoy goes about flagrantly altering history by growing the old woman a new kidney, which would lead to her having years of life which could not exist in the "original" time line. Also, the Bounty's arrival squashed a trash can which thus could not continue to be used for sanitation as it would in an unaltered time line. The novelization actually explains away the paradoxes by directly stating that many of the supposed changes were actually caused by them. I.e., they had to go back in time so that the timeline would be correct. See more »

The film was originally released in 1986, which was the 75th Anniversary of Paramount Studios. Accordingly, the opening logo for the film originally had the 75th Anniversary sign on it, as did the original video release. All subsequent video releases (and at least some 35mm film prints) have included the regular Paramount logo. See more »
The Voyage Home is the Star Trek film that had the highest box office gross. It captured the imagination of the public who were eager to see Kirk and the crew in present day (1986) San Francisco. Luckily, the film was solid in all aspects and was enjoyed by long-time fans of the series as well. Although the outcome of the film is never in doubt, it never loses the attention of the viewer and entertains throughout. It actually felt fresh and original despite the fact that time travel had been done before (in the TV series) and it was the fourth film in the franchise. Recommended, 8/10.
