Yes, this is pretty much the cheesiest of the Star Trek films, but it's also a lot of fun. Fans of the original cast will be pleased, as will fans of the 80s. Non trekkies may be left scratching their heads over this one.

Kind of infamous as the Star Trek where they save the whales. It's full of 80's cheese that doesn't really help the often dated Star Trek universe. A pretty slow film, but the earnest environmentally-friendly message pushes things over the top into silliness.

What an awful idea. This movie is one big 80's cliche. The campy humor is, at times, enjoyable, but only to hardcore trekkies and people who get a kick out of watching the Shat work his flirt mojo. Even for a broad sci-fi audience, this one doesn't pass muster.

"Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home" by Yojimbo

The crew of the Enterprise return to Earth to find it under siege from a mysterious probe trying to communicate with the now extinct humpback whale and so travel back in time to 1980s Los Angeles to find some whales and save Earth's atmosphere from destruction. As you can tell from the extremely hokey premise, The Voyage Home is Star Trek with tongue placed firmly in cheek and is the closest the series skirted to outright comedy. There are plenty of laughs to be had in the culture clash between our old favourites from the crew and 80s L.A. and each member of the team gets their moment in the sun with some affectionate fun-poking and knockabout farce with a heavy handed but sincere eco message attached. It works better as humour than drama as the plot has holes you could sail a nuclear wes...

The Voyage Holme

It is the fourth feature film based on the Star Trek science fiction television series and completes the story arc begun in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and continued in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. Intent on returning home to Earth to face trial for their crimes, the former crew of the USS Enterprise finds the planet in grave danger from an alien probe attempting to contact now-extinct humpback whales. The crew travel to Earth's past to find whales who can answer the probe's call.
After directing The Search for Spock, cast member Leonard Nimoy was asked to direct the next feature, and given greater freedom regarding the film's content. Nimoy and producer Harve Bennett conceived a story with an environmental message and no clear-cut villain.With a fantastic and original screen...

one of the more original and creative entries

First of all, the plot for this movie has got to be one of the most backward-ass, ludicrous plots out of any movie ever, and this is a STAR TREK FILM! Seriously, I guess you got to give if credit for being original, but the storyline is about the crew traveling back in time to modern day 1986 to retrieve humpback whales, the only beings that can successfully communicate with an alien probe...what were they smoking? Nimoy does a very decent job at directing, but there is some unneeded corniness and tacked-on plot devices like Kirk's love interest. The love interest happens to be the woman who works at the aquarium and watches over the whales in 1986. The end is predictable and kind of unfulfilling, but besides those minor problems, I think ST:IV is one of the more original and creative ent...
