Movie Summary

Director:
Leonard Nimoy , Stuart Jensen
Released:
1984
Rating:
PG

In the climactic final battle of The Wrath of Khan, the Starship Enterprise was nearly entirely destroyed and the Enterprise's Vulcan commander Spock was killed. Captain James T. Kirk leads the remainder of the crew back to Earth, where the ship's doctor Leonard McCoy begins acting strangely. Due to his behavior, McCoy is locked up until Starfleet can figure out what's wrong with him. What they discover is hard to believe, moments prior to Spock's death, he transferred his katra, or living spirit, into McCoy's body. Now, with two spirits inside of him, McCoy is exhibiting odd, contradictory behavior. Captain Kirk, thrilled to hear there's still a chance his old friend could survive, disobeys Starfleet's orders to stay put. He gathers the crew, busts McCoy out of prison, and hijacks the Enterprise.
