Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home

Admiral James Kirk of the Starship Enterprise is on the planet Vulcan, commanding his recently seized Klingon Bird of Prey and picking up Spock so they can go back to Earth to face charges for their crimes. However, life on Earth is not the best. A powerful alien probe has appeared out of nowhere and nobody knows what language it is speaking in . . . or more importantly, whom they wish to commune with. When they set Standard Orbit around Earth the oceans are being steadily vaporized; Spock figures out that the probe is calling to humpback whales. Problem is they have been extinct for the past two centuries!!!! Kirk and his crew 'Time Warp' from the 23rd to the "primitive and paranoid" 20th century. Along the way, they run into a marine biologist who is a bit protective of her two whales, George and Gracie. Also, the crew run into some 'technical' problems.

Quotes

Kirk: Mr. Spock, have you accounted for the variable mass of whales and water in your time re-entry program?
Spock: Mr. Scott cannot give me exact figures, Admiral, so... I will make a guess.
Kirk: A guess? You, Spock? That's extraordinary.
Spock: [to Dr. McCoy] I don't think he understands.
McCoy: No, Spock. He means that he feels safer about your guesses than most other people's facts.
Spock: Then you're saying... It is a compliment?
McCoy: It is.
Spock: Ah. Then, I will try to make the best guess I can.
McCoy: Please do.

Mistakes

The Bird of Prey is the one captured by Kirk's crew in ST III That ship's bridge showed Klingon Cmdr Kruge in his elevated command chair with his helmsmen arrayed circularly below him, and nothing else. ST IV has this same ship, however the bridge now resembles The Enterprise layout with Kirk's command chair behind Sulu and Chekov at their rectangular helm, with Spock, Scotty and Uhura at their usual positions.
