Leonard Nimoy as Spock and William Shatner as Kirk

Kirk: We have two perfect whales right in our hands and if we don’t move quickly, we’ll lose them.
Spock: In that event, the probabilities are that our mission would fail.
Kirk: Our mission? Spock, you’re talking about the end of every life on Earth! You’re half human. Haven’t you got any goddamn feelings about that?

  1. Well, double dumbass on YOU!

  2. Best of the movies with the original series cast. So much hilarious quotable dialogue. Loved Catherine Hicks in this too.

  3. (Spock to Kirk): “What does it mean…exact change?”

  4. I think I’m the only person on the planet who doesn’t find this one compelling. I much prefer II and VI.

  5. I find this one compelling in that it’s an interesting snapshot of Trek trying to find relevance by putting itself smack-dab into the culture and politics of that specific time period. It’s funny, but it feels awfully kitschy now. I just watched it a few years ago and was surprised by how dated it feels vs the other Trek films. I don’t consider myself a huge Trek fan though, so true Trekkies may see it differently.

    I do love the idea of them having to tool around in a Romulan Warbird for an entire movie though. That was definitely an inspired touch.
