William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and the rest of the U.S.S. Enterprise crew come down to earth in one of the most acclaimed and intriguing Star Trek adventures ever.

It's the 23rd century and a mysterious alien power is threatening Earth by evaporating the oceans and destroying the atmosphere. In a frantic attempt to save mankind, Kirk and his crew must time travel back to 1986 San Francisco, where they find a world of punk, pizza and exact-change buses that are as alien as anything they've ever encountered in the far reaches of the galaxy. A thrilling, action-packed mission for the Starship Enterprise!

Generally considered the most accessible of the features this tale about rescuing whales from 1986 and return with them to the 24th century so as to communicate with a destructive alien probe is one that appeals to a greater cross section of film fans than merely the core Star Trek following. Laced with many a witty line (Chekov asking 'where they keep the nuclear wessel' springs to mind here!) and excellent use of the picturesque San Francisco location there is much to admire and continually enjoy from this inventive outing for the 'classic series' cast. With bonus features menus set in front of the Golden Gate bridge and adjacent landed Klingon ship it's an impressive total of 140 mins of content for the viewer to browse through. In 'The Star Trek Universe' real science items "Time Travel: The Art of the Possible" (11 mins) and "The Language of Whales" (5 ¾ mins) rubs shoulders with featurettes on Spock's people ("A Vulcan Primer" (7 ¾ mins)) and the Enterprise Captain's romantic flirtations ("Kirk's Women" (approx 8 mins with contributions from all of the key actresses whom have appeared opposite Shatner's character in the classic series and this fourth film)). Having a look in the 'Production' menu you'll get the inside story about how this film was made through the insightful "Future's Past : A Look Back" (approx 27 ½ mins), go 'On Location' (approx 7 mins) with reflective thoughts about filming in San Francisco, see a unique "Dailies Deconstruction" (4 mins) of the Market Street scene and learn from Mark Mangini about the sound design of this feature in "Below The Line (approx 11 ½ mins). Over in 'Visual Effects' you'll find that with the use of story boards, test footage and models Leonard Nimoy and production crew members give fascinating insight into more film production aspects during "From Outer Space To The Ocean" whilst "The Bird of Prey" (2 ¾ mins) looks at the commandeered craft that our heroes use to travel back through space and time to Earth. The 'Original Interviews' menu presents us with on set conversations with Leonard Nimoy (15 ½ mins), William Shatner (14 ½ mins) and DeForest Kelley (13 mins) all of which are interesting and enjoyable and I'm sure at the time of the original theatrical release of this film would have offered further incentive, if any be needed, to go and see the latest adventure of the classic series cast up there on the big screen. Aside from matters pertaining to the making of this film and its resulting science aspects this DVD release presents us with a 'Tributes' section where we find two items. The first features Eugene presenting us with an 8 min 'Roddenberry Scrapbook' where the young man talks about his father's vision of the franchise with classic series clips. Also entirely commendable is the 12 ¾ min 'Featured Artist : Mark Lenard' feature on an actor whom contributed so much to the Star Trek universe and is suitably honoured here. Other than to commend the enjoyable 3 ¾ min 'Production Gallery' item with photos from the film matched to the films rousing theme tune there isn't much else worth mentioning in a marvellously impressive sumptuously packed special edition that is a mighty fine addition to any film fans collection irrespective of genre preferences.

Part 4 is a riot, it's a very silly, but also very clever and funny time traveling adventure. It's the one with the Whale and the giant tube of smarties that threatens our future. After the lackluster third chapter, this entry really does bring back the campness of the 60's show and pokes fun at it's self to great comic effect. Although the 1986 setting of the film badly dates it, it also adds a charm to it.
In all this is one of the most enjoable entries in the long running series.

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986) - ***
Star Trek is never everyone's cup of tea, and this, the fourth installment in the movie franchise, is no exception. Yes, it's set in the real world, in the 1980's, but it never quite betrays its roots and becomes a different entity. However, for Trekkies (me included) this seems possibly the most fun and even best loved of the films, and it's not hard to see why. The cast seem perfectly comfortable in their roles, all showing the signs of age, but no less enthusiasm for their cause. There is very little in the way of peril in the film, there is no "big baddie" and the most stressful period for the crew seems to be trying to transport a humpback whale onto the Enterprise. This is a significant departure from The Wrath of Khan and Search for Spock, both of which had formidable villains. So, the plot is light(humpback whales? in Star Trek?!), the jokes are sparkling ("Nuclear Wessels")and the whole thing ends up as a fun ol' romp for the Enterprise crew. Enjoyable stuff.
