Latest excursion is warmer, wittier, more socially relevant and truer to its TV origins than prior odysseys.

This voyage finds the crew earthbound but they find the galaxy dark and messages from Earth distorted. Spock locates the source of the trouble in the bleating, eerie sounds of an unidentified probe and links them to a cry from the Earth’s past that has long been silenced. Scripters employ successful use of time travel.

Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and Kirk (William Shatner) play off each other in a sort of deadpan futuristic version of Hope and Crosby with Nimoy, surprisingly, as the awkward one relying on Shatner’s smooth talking to win the help of a zealous save-the-whales biologist (Catherine Hicks) in capturing a couple of specimens.
