“May fortune favor the foolish.” Kirk- Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Stardate: 8390
After the retraining of Spock, the crew of the recently destroyed Enterprise make plans to return to Earth to face trial after disobeying orders. On their way back, they intercept a distress call from the Federation President. The planet Earth is being disrupted by an unknown probe.
Spock is able to determine that the probe is seeking humpback whales that once swam in Earth’s oceans. The only way that Kirk and company can find more whales is by traveling through the past. Using a slingshot around the Sun, the intrepid crew finds themselves in 1986. Will they find some whales in time to prevent the destruction of Earth?
