From the depths of space, through the Klingon sector, an unidentified object of simply gigantic proportions with unclear, but possibly hostile intentions is approaching the Earth, and the Enterprise turns out to be the only ship that can get to this object in time to study it and eliminate the potential danger to the Earth.

But is there, in essence, a difference where to fly? When the whole universe lies in front of you, when you again got on the ship on which you know every millimeter; when, under your command, a team that was with you where no man’s foot has stepped, a team that understands you perfectly …
Does it really matter how much time has passed? Ten years in real life, six months for me, which seemed to have just been an eternity, and now, when the credits of this film have ended, they have disappeared into some unknown place.
This film was released in 1979, that is, two years after the ‘New Hope’. After a new step in world cinema, the first part of that film, which has managed to become a fantastic epic of really all times and peoples. For all my ardent love for ‘Trek’, looking at its ‘popularity’ in Russia (especially if we take it before 2009, before the Abramov film), the same cannot be said about it. Maybe it’s for the best. However, I’m not talking about that now, but about the fact that Roddenberry also began to bet on the epic. He took his old recipe for success, saved up some money, became skilled in special effects, conspired with Jerry Goldsmith, who wrote the music that later adorned the screensaver of the series ‘The Next Generation’ – somehow it all went like that. On the one hand – recognizable and beloved, on the other – completely new.
And even the entire cast seemed to be divided into two irreconcilable camps. Some have to look for familiar features in appearance and behavior. Others seemed to have conspired not to change and freeze in time just the way we remembered them in the TOS. For example, I find it hard to believe that an angry McCoy with his ‘I’ll first watch your molecules scatter across space’ in this film is already sixty. And no one can convince me that Mr. Spock’s face is no longer as calm as it was ten years ago. Here’s something, but, by the way, he has preserved equanimity to this day. As well as the ability to put a hand on someone’s shoulder in time. However, I’m not talking about that again.
It is no less difficult to believe that Admiral Kirk, this very Admiral Kirk, is the same person as Captain Kirk, this is the gouging and thunderstorm of the female population of the entire galaxy. Or Chekhov – this is an amazing, frightening adult, but still the same Chekhov.
About special effects, theme, etc. I will not speak, everything has already been said before me. Finally – perhaps only about the reason why I cannot rate this film.
It is difficult to say how I would have estimated it if it had not been for the preliminary study of the TOC. In general, my assessment of that series is –
this is the one that can be put to the whole honest company of Shatner-Nimoy-Kelly-Takei-Nicholls-Koenig-Duen-Barrett-Roddenbury (Who have you forgotten? Sergeant Major Rand?).
Perhaps all my grades remained there. Here is pure pleasure.
