Continuity mistake: 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.
9.5/10.The best Star Trek movie after Wrath Of Khan.My favorite and a movie with a pretty good environmental message.I liked the idea of humpback whales needing to rescued to save earth of the future with their advanced technology being useless.Here it seems like the Star Trek crew learned the past can sometimes be helpful to the future in the most unlikely of ways.It had a good blend of the sci fi we've become accustomed to with this franchise with humor mixed in such as McCoy curing a kidney dialysis patient.I would say this is the movie they had the most fun working on because it doesn't seem to bear signs of pressure anywhere the way the first two did.I viewed them and could see signs they'd been under tremendous pressure.Here it's a fun sci fi romp with Catherine Hicks being one of the best love interests ever in the franchise for William Shatner.I would gladly post this on a list titled "100 best Science Fiction Movies Of All Time."
Spock: Your use of language has altered since our arrival. It is currently laced with, shall we say, more colorful metaphors, "double dumb-ass on you" and so forth.
Kirk: Oh, you mean the profanity?
Kirk: Well that's simply the way they talk here. Nobody pays any attention to you unless you swear every other word.
