Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home

star trek in 80's san francisco. why the fuck not?

so the crew of the enterprise needs to travel back in time to bring a now extinct hump back whale to communicate with an alien ship who is destroying the planet. once again, it's plausible... and downright logical! this was the funniest trek film so far, and probably the easiest to make. the setting is more or less the present day, and the jokes center around the crew members trying to interact with 20th century californians. hilarity ensues. the film felt like a long episode of captain planet. we're supposed to stop whaling and save the whales... we get it. entertaining indeed, but incredibly silly. even for a star trek film.
