The film begins during a rare period of respite for the crew of the Enterprise, as Captain Kirk, Spock, and Dr. McCoy camp in Yosemite National Park during shore leave. However, their vacation is cut short by a hostage situation that demands the Enterprise's attention. However, once they reach their destination, the crew realize that there is no hostage situation. The whole thing was orchestrated by Spock's Vulcan half-brother, Sybok, who sought to lure a starship to him to assist in a mission of extreme importance to find and communicate with God.
