    A huge alien probe approaches Earth and begins sending strange highly amplified signals which boil the oceans, drain the power from nearby ships and cause widespread mayhem. Admiral James T. Kirk and his crew return from their mission to revive Captain Spock on Vulcan, despite knowing that they will face court-martial for the theft and subsequent loss of the USS Enterprise, when they hear about the current crisis. Spock, who is still recovering mentally, discovers that the alien ship is trying to contact humpback whales, which unfortunately were hunted to extinction three centuries previously. Kirk orders their hijacked Klingon Bird-of-Prey, renamed the Bounty, to slingshot around the sun in order to travel back in time to the late 20th century. Arriving in San Francisco, California in the year 1986, the crew hides their cloaked ship in Golden Gate Park. Thereafter, they attempt to find both the whales needed to communicate with the alien probe, as well as materials to contain the whales and to restore the Bird-of-Prey's power source, which was nearly drained in travel. Kirk and Spock eventually recruit the assistance of Dr. Gillian Taylor, a cetacean specialist, who is caring for two humpback whales in the cetacean institute in Sausalito.moreless

    Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home is a 1986 science film that continues the story of the crew of the USS Enterprise, the starship that was recently destroyed during the events of Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. The recently recovered Spock is traveling back to Earth with his fellow crew members James T. Kirk, Montgomery Scott, Leonard McCoy, Hikaru Sulu, Uhura, and Chekov. Once on Earth, they will stand trial for stealing the Enterprise on a renegade mission to save Spock's life—a mission which led to the Enterprise's destruction. When they arrive back home in their stolen Klingon starship, they discover a mysterious alien cylinder that is causing huge amounts of damage to Earth's ecosystem. After Spock investigates, they discover the aliens are descendants of humpback whales, magnificent creatures that once lived in Earth's oceans until they were made extinct by human greed. Captain Kirk proposes a risky plan that takes the crew back in time to 1986, where they hope to find two “Adam and Eve” humpback whales to bring back to the present, where they could repopulate the Earth and appease the aliens. Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home is one of the most celebrated films in the Star Trek franchise, featuring a light-hearted tone and a positive message.moreless
