Star Trek III: The Search for Spock - Movie Synopsis & Plot

In the aftermath of Khan's death, Kirk is not feeling victory. Spock is dead and McCoy is going insane. Somewhere, though, there is an explanation for it all, and Sarek, Spock's father, has the answer. McCoy, the last person to have touched Spock, is possessed by the living essence of the dead Vulcan.

Kirk realizes that his only option is to defy Federation law and go to Genesis by stealing the USS Enterprise. Unfortunately, things will not be so easy. The planet is falling apart, literally, and the Klingons are planning on intercepting the Enterprise in a deadly showdown.

MOVIE REVIEW

The Search for Spock is the must needed sequel to Star Trek 2. Spock dies, Kirk unites with his unknowing son, and the Genesis planet is formed in Star Trek 2; in Star Trek 3, those three subjects make up the plot of the film. It is only fitting that Spock survives, since he has been a main character since the first episode of the television series. Basically, the whole movie is based around the Genesis planet and it's failure, but is also the sole reason for Spock's rejuvenation. The only thing somewhat left on the sides is Kirk's relationship with his son; Kirk cries when he hears of the tragedy but not once in the movie do they meet face to face.
