The most acclaimed Star Trek adventure of all time. It’s the 23rd Century, and a mysterious alien power is threatening Earth by evaporating the oceans and destroying the atmosphere.

The son of a Boston barber, Leonard Nimoy was a star at the age of 8, when he played Hansel in a children’s theatre production of Hansel and Gretel. Nimoy remained with his local kiddie theater troupe until 16 (one of his directors during this period was Boris Sagal). After studying drama at Boston College and Antioch College, he took acting lessons from Jeff Corey at the Pasadena Playhouse. In films from 1950, Nimoy played the title character in the low-budget Kid Monk Baroni and essayed bits and minor roles in such productions as Zombies of the Stratosphere (1951), Rhubarb (1951) and Them!

SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN REASSEMBLED INTO JIM!!! I'M JUST SAYING!!! You can't beam two people up at the same time like that!! Apart from that huge, HUGE!

Bones like always is my favorite character in the series and the movies, so bones fighting with the 21 century medic was hilarious for me.
I thought this was great. It felt like a feature length episode, and the hijinks the crew gets into are hilarious. I love the subplot of Spock learning to find himself, and friendship to Kirk again, it's pretty touching and raised quite a lot of questions about life, death, and the soul. It does get a little too much into the "Oh god why?!" of Whale hunting but I suppose it makes sense, it was just a bit annoying.
The best of the film series featuring the original crew because it works on so many levels: embracing Roddenberry's original notion of wrapping topical notions in the cloak of sci-fi while playing the entire film as a comedy: satirical, silly & slapstick. It makes the "threat" to be resolved a MacGuffin to allow the hilarity. http://eddieonfilm.blogspot.com/2010/11/its-miracle-these-people-ever-got-out.html
