Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home

Save the whales, save the universe.

The original U.S.S. Enterprise crew heads back in time in their most-enjoyable cinematic voyage, mixing sly humor with Vulcan nerve pinches.

The mission: retrieve a humpback whale from the past, so its song can placate a probe destroying everything in its path.

Leonard Nimoy pulled triple duty here, directing as well as being credited with the story, and portraying a revived Spock.

His deadpan response to “modern-day” residents of San Francisco is a particular highlight, and this adventure, more than any in the movie series, really captures the spirit of Gene Rodenberry’s vision.
