About this movie

It is the 23rd century. The Federation Starship U.S.S. EnterpriseTM is on routine training maneuvers and Admiral James T. Kirk (William Shatner) seems resigned to the fact that this inspection may well be the last space mission of his career. But Khan is back. Aided by his exiled band of genetic supermen, Khan (Ricardo Montalban) - brilliant renegade of 20th century Earth - has raided Space Station Regula One, stolen a top secret device called Project Genesis, wrested control of another Federation starship, and now schemes to set a most deadly trap for his old enemy Kirk... with the threat of a universal Armageddon!

I still regard this as being by far the greatest Star Trek movie ever created. Ricardo Montalban absolutely steals the show with one of the most memorable villain performances ever brought onto the silver screen. Excellent direction by Nicholas Meyer and one of the best Star Trek soundtracks in history by James Horner. If JJ Abrams wants to make a truly unforgettable Star Trek movie for the ages, this is the one to aspire to in my opinion. Brilliant! "KHAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!!!!!!" 😎👍

Considered the best movie of the series for good reasons. Harve Bennett went back to the source material and finally produced a movie, and a villain, that the franchise deserved. Fantastic cast, compelling story, excellent score and great special effects.

With its heart, soul and genuine sense of wonderment, this makes J.J. Abrams' reboots look like the brain-dead, superficial baubles they are.
