Star Trek III: The Search for Spock

{5/5} “Aye, and if my grandmother had wheels she’d be a wagon.”

Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, released in 1984

Admiral James T. Kirk realizes after talking with Sarek that Spock had transferred his katra to Dr. McCoy before he died. Sarek tells him to bring both McCoy and Spock to Vulcan. The Enterprise is supposed to be decommissioned, so Kirk steals it. Meanwhile, David and Saavik find a young Spock who is rapidly aging on the Genesis Planet. A renegade Klingon named Kruge has also found out about Genesis and is on his way.

The dialogue in this movie is perfect — there are many memorable lines. It’s serious some of the time, but there’s a lot of humour.

It’s about doing whatever it takes for your friend.

Stars Nichelle Nichols, Christopher Lloyd, Mark Lenard, Robin Curtis, and Merritt Butrick. Directed by Leonard Nimoy (3 Men and a Baby). The soundtrack from James Horner is stupendous, particularly “Returning to Vulcan.”

This is the 5th or 6th time I’ve seen it. I previously reviewed Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.
