The original enterprise crew finally bow out in this sixth movie which is also one of the best. After the previous film saw the series degenerating into farce, with a silly plot and a tired feel, this one has a sense of excitement and energy not seen since the superlative Wrath of Khan, ten years earlier. The regulars may look like they're on their last legs, with an overweight Shatner, a creaky Nimoy and a positively decrepit Kelley, but director Nicholas Myer injects the same sense of dynamism he brought to Wrath of Khan, the plot unfolds beautifully, the space battles are awesome, the acting is of a high calibre, the locations look great and the finale with the old enterprise crew flying off into the sunset couldn't be more fitting. It doesn't quite top Khan for sheer emotional impact, but it comes a good second. This is an excellent quality DVD too, with superb picture and great extra features. A must buy for any Trekkie or sci-fi fan.
