The human adventure is just beginning

When a destructive space entity is spotted approaching Earth, Admiral Kirk resumes command of the Starship Enterprise in order to intercept, examine, and hopefully stop it.

A strange cloud descends upon Klingon vessels and eradicates them with an energy bolt. The Epsilon IX space station alerts the Federation, but they too are wiped out by the entity. The starship assigned to the case is, what else, the NCC-1701. That would be the registration number for the U.S.S. Enterprise, which has been rebuilt. Thus, the entire original crew you knew from the TV show returns. Although they are prepared to face the entity, nothing will prepare them for the ride to come. The film asks the question Paul Gauguin asks in a painting bearing this name: "Where do [I] come from? What [am I]? Where [am I] going?" Trekkers, note the appearance of Will Decker, the son of Matt Decker, who killed himself in the TV episode, "The Doomsday Machine". The film can be summed up in a single word: beautiful.

MORE INFO ON WILLIAM SHATNER: Handsome Canadian-born actor who - despite his detractors - has notched up an impressive 50-years-plus in front of the camera, most recently displaying comedic talent, and being instantly recognizable to several generations of cult TV fans as the square-jawed Capt. James T. Kirk, commander of the starship USS Enterprise.

Shatner spent many years honing his craft in TV and live theater before ing alongside in (1958). He was kept busy during the 1960s in films such as (1962) and (1961) and on television guest-starring in dozens of shows such as (1955), (1961), (1963) and (1959). In 1966 Shatner boarded the USS Enterprise for three seasons of (1966), co-starring alongside , with the series eventually becoming a bona-fide cult classic with a worldwide legion of fans known as "Trekkies".

After "Star Trek" folded, Shatner spent the rest of the decade and the 1970s making the rounds guest-starring on many prime-time TV shows, including (1968), (1969) and (1967). He has also appeared in several feature films, but they were mainly B-grade (or lower) fare such as the embarrassingly bad Euro western (1968) (aka The White Comanche) and the campy (1977). However, the 1980s saw a major resurgence in Shatner's career with the renewed interest in the old (1966) television series culminating in a series of big-budget "Star Trek" feature films including (1979), (1982), (1984), (1986), (1989) and (1991). In addition, he starred in the lightweight cop series (1982) from 1982 to 1986, alongside spunky , and surprised many fans with his droll comedic talents in (1982), (1993) and (2000).

He has most recently been starring in the television shows (1997) and (2004).

MORE INFO ON LEONARD NIMOY: Raised in a Boston tenement, acting in community theaters since age eight, didn't make his Hollywood he was 20, a bit part in (1951) and another as a ballplayer in the perennial (1951). After two years in army he was still getting small, often uncredited parts - an army telex operator in (1954), for example - but his part as Narab, a Martian finally friendly to Earth, in the closing scene in the corny Republic serial (1952), somewhat foreshadowed the role which would make him a household name--Mr. Spock, the half-human/half-Vulcan science officer of (1966) one of TV's all-time most successful series. His performance won him three Emmy nominations and launched his career as a writer and director, notably of (1986), the story of a humpback whale rescue that proved the most successful of the Star Trek movies. Stage credits have included "Fiddler on the Roof," "Oliver," "Camelot," and "Equus." He has hosted the well-known TV series (1976) and (1996), authored several volumes of poetry and guest-starred on two episodes of (1989). He recently played Mustafa Mond in NBC's telling of (1998) (TV).
