Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (on DVD)

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
[DVD Star]

As Kirk and crew return home to Earth they find that there is an alien probe approaching and is causing massive power failures across the globe. The signals emitting from the probe are determined by Spock to be vocalizations similar to those of a humpback whale. Because they must communicate with the probe, but humpback whales have gone extinct, their solution is to go back in time and kidnap/rescue a pair of whales. They travel back to the late 20th century and it's funny to watch the crew in that environment. They split up with different tasks, catch whales, build a tank in the space ship for the whales, and find some way to restore the ship's power. This is a great movie. While it does pick up shortly after the last movie ended, you could watch this as a stand alone. I'd recommend it if you like time travel movies, science fiction, or humorous movies with a good plot. -- recommended by Kristen A. - Gere Branch Library [ see Kristen's Reviewer Profile and more of her reviews ]
