Plot

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 1 choice - to join the Federation, which will mean an end to 70 years of wars. Admiral James T. Kirk and crew are called upon to help in the negotiations because of their "experience" of the Klingon race. Peace talks don't quite go to plan, and eventually Kirk and McCoy are tried and convicted of assassination, and sent to Rura Penthe, a snowy hard-labour prison camp. Will they manage to escape ? And will there ever be peace with the Klingons ? An explosion of their key mining facility, Praxis, throws the Klingon Empire into a horrible economic downturn. It has been estimated they have 50 years before their ozone layer is depleted and they all die. Due to their high military spending, the Klingons are unable to deal with this disaster and have no choice but to make peace with the Federation and end many years of hostility. The Chancellor of the Klingon High Council makes plans to go to Earth for the first steps of peace and Captain Spock vouches for the Enterprise-A crew to escort the Chancellor's ship. Peace plans don't go as planned, when Starfleet officers beam over to the Chancellor ship and assassinate the Chancellor. Also, according to the Enterprise-A's computer databanks, they opened fired on the Chancellor's ship even though all torpedos are accounted for. Kirk and McCoy are arrested for the assassination of the Chancellor and sent to Rura Penthe, a snowy prison camp. Meanwhile, Spock and the rest of the crew try to unravel the mystery of who really fired on the Chancellor's ship and assassinated the Chancellor. Will Kirk and McCoy escape Rura Penthe? Can the Enterprise-A crew save the galaxy from war? It's all for one and one for all as the Kirk and the crew of Enterprise-A set course for the stars in their final adventure. The Klingon Empire has been one of the Federation's deadliest enemies for nearly a century. All of that changes when their key energy production facility, the moon Praxis, explodes, damaging the Klingon home world's atmosphere and meaning that all ozone will be depleted in 50 years. Unable to the cope with this disaster due to their massive military expenditures, the Empire seeks peace talks with the Federation in order to receive aid. Kirk however is opposed to the peace talks, it has been eight years since his son David was killed at the Genesis planet and he has never been able to forgive the Klingons for it. But he is a Starfleet officer and must escort Kronos One, the ship carrying Klingon Chancellor Gorkon, to Earth. But while en route, Kronos One is fired upon and Gorkon is assassinated. All evidence points to the Enterprise-A as the source of the photon torpedoes and Kirk and McCoy as the assassins, who are subsequently arrested, tried, and sentenced to life at the gulag Rura Penthe. But Spock is certain that Kirk and the Enterprise-A have been framed and with the aid of senior staff as well as help from Sulu, now captain of the Excelsior, set out to clear Kirk's name and cement a lasting peace between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire before all is too late. The Enterprise leads a battle for peace. After years of war, the Federation and Klingon empire prepare for a peace summit. But the prospect of intergalactic glasnost with sworn enemies is an alrming one to Captain Kirk (William Shatner). "They're animals!" he warns. When a Klingon ship is attacked and the Enterprise is held accountable, the dogs are war are unleashed again, as both worlds brace for what may be their final, deadly encounter. Costarring Christopher Plummer.
 

Comments

It's Dead, Jim! Well, this Was actually one of the better ones in the run, wasn't it? Right up there with Khan, the one where they save the Whales, and where the Borg get whacked by the Bald Guy....all of'em pretty good, fun to watch, etc. I think they sent off the old guys in a proper, fitting way, with Bones and the rest kayoing the Klingons. It's too bad such putrid films as the first one(Dull, DUll DULL!!!) and #5(or, Captain Quirk gets to Direct) are still floating round out there to sully a generally good series' luster. But, looking round and seeing some comments in here about how crappy Star Wars is, missing Trek...guys, get a grip. Star Wars leaves this series in its wake big time, and there ain't any getting round that fact. Even Jar Jar.
