When last we left the crew of the star ship Enterprise, they were heading home following a skirmish with the despotic Khan. The unpleasant incident had cost the life of Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy)--or so it seemed. Admiral Kirk (William Shatner) is informed by Spock's father Sarek (Mark Lenard) that his son is being kept alive in the thoughts of one of the crew members. It now becomes necessary to search for Spock's body, so that flesh and soul can be rejoined on Vulcan. It turns out that Spock's spirit is residing within the mind of the Vulcan's longtime shipmate, "Bones" McCoy (DeForrest Kelley). Finding the body is another matter, since the Enterprise has been consigned to the trash heap and thus is out of Kirk's jurisdiction. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

This movie pretty much rules for Star Trek fans. It only gets 4 stars for its shallow plot, and less character development than Star Trek 2 (which was a better movie over all). But you should rent this, ST 2 & ST 4 at the same time, since they are so closely connected in story & timeline. Directed by Spock himself, Leonard Nimoy. And Shatner is large and in charge here; he takes no Klingon crap! And Christopher Lloyd is the best Klingon EVER!
Star Trek III is part two in the unofficial "Star Trek Trilogy" consisting of interlocking meaningful plots that are not present in the first or fifth movies. This is a classic that bridges the gaps from the explosion of the Genesis Project and Spock's death in The Wrath of Khan to the gravity of the clash with the Klingons and the Federation in The Voyage Home. Star Trek III has the best one liners of all the other Original Series movies. A must see, after you see Star Trek II.
