Dovetailing neatly with the previous entry in the popular series Star Trek II, film centers upon a quest to seemingly bring Spock (Leonard Nimoy), the noble science officer and commander who selflessly gave his life to save ‘the many’, back to life.

Spock’s friend, Admiral Kirk (William Shatner) is visited by Spock’s Vulcan father (Mark Lenard), who informs him that Spock’s living spirit may still be alive via a mindmeld with one of Kirk’s crew and must be taken to the planet Vulcan to be preserved.

Kirk discovers who the ‘possessed’ crew member is, and with his other shipmates, steals the Enterprise out of its dock and sets off for Vulcan.
