When people are asked what their favorite Star Trek movie is, the majority of those polled respond that it is Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. Set in 1986, the film is noteworthy in not only does it return the recently dead Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy, who also directed) back to action, but it features a warm environmental message with plenty of fish-out-of-water laughs as the Enterprise crew squares off against a potentially deadly outer space probe that seems obsessed with Earth’s whales. The movie was such a sensation that even non-Trekkies considered it one of the year’s best, and it remains a science fiction touchstone. To commemorate the film’s 35th anniversary, we are giving it the Create-A-Caption treatment this week. We’ve taken a still from the movie and given it a comedic caption below. Doing the same would be quite logical on your part!
