“What does God need with a starship?” is the question asked by Captain Kirk when he and some others encounter a powerful being across the forbidden barrier of space, and this being declares his need of their ship. The story begins with Sybok, a Vulcan who happens to be related to Spock. He believes God has given him a vision concerning where to find Him!
The Enterprise is in danger from more than one plot. Sybok plans to steal the Enterprise and, when a Klingon warrior hears that Kirk is near by, he too plots but not to steal it, but rather attack the ship. He longs for the glory of defeating the famous warrior, James T. Kirk.
The Enterprise, under Sybok’s power, heads toward the dangerous barrier n space where no one has ever safely crossed. Sybok believes he will find his destiny on the other side, in a meeting with God Himself! This film has plenty of action, and at times an interesting plot, but the strong language dooms it and prevents us from awarding our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to the picture.
