Nothing can prepare you for how bad this movie is. The first five minutes look promising, but it rapidly goes downhill, and keeps going downhill, until the very end. A Vulcan with emotions has hijacked the U.S.S. Enterprise and takes her and her crew to the center of the galaxy where they "find God." Excuse me? What is God doing in the center of the galaxy as an ethereal disembodied head and why would he be interesting in talking to the puny crew of the Enterprise? But the omnipotent Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner) manages to reason with God and convinces Him to let them go on their merry way. Uh-huh. The rest of the film is polluted with bad acting, dreadful set pieces, and an embarrassing script. Skip this one altogether and go straight to "Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country" (1991).
