Adm. James T. Kirk assumes command of the Enterprise and finds himself facing his old nemesis.
It is the twenty-third century. Admiral James T. Kirk is feeling old; the prospect of accompanying his old ship the Enterprise--now a Starfleet Academy training ship--on a two-week cadet cruise is not making him feel any younger. But the training cruise becomes a deadly serious mission when Khan appears after years of exile--and holding the power of creation itself.
The film opens with an unfamiliar female character in command of the USS Enterprise. The situation is soon revealed to be, in actuality, what is known as the 'Kobayashi Maru Test', an intentionally no-win situation designed to test the character of officer trainees. The unfamiliar character is introduced as Captain Spock?s prot?g?, Lieutenant Saavik. Admiral James T. Kirk oversees the training session.
Aboard the USS Reliant, First officer Pavel Chekov and Captain Clark Terrell are searching for a lifeless planet to serve as a testing ground for an undefined 'Project Genesis.' They beam to the surface of a likely candidate, Ceti Alpha VI, and quickly become captives of Khan Noonien Singh. Khan explains that because of the explosion of Ceti Alpha VI, Ceti Alpha V has suffered an environmental disaster, and is bitter that Kirk did not check on Khan's progress. Khan employs the small offspring of a nasty indigenous animal (known to fans as the 'Ceti Eel')to control Chekov and Terrell and forces them to reveal the details of their mission, and the whereabouts of Admiral Kirk.
It is the 23rd century. The Federation Starship U.S.S. EnterpriseTM is on routine training maneuvers and Admiral James T. Kirk (William Shatner) seems resigned to the fact that this inspection may well be the last space mission of his career. But Khan is back. Aided by his exiled band of genetic supermen, Khan (Ricardo Montalban) - brilliant renegade of 20th century Earth - has raided Space Station Regula One, stolen a top secret device called Project Genesis, wrested control of another Federation starship, and now schemes to set a most deadly trap for his old enemy Kirk... with the threat of a universal Armageddon!
Admiral Kirk's midlife crisis is interrupted by the return of an old enemy looking for revenge and a potentially destructive device.
