Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Years ago, Captain Kirk left a dangerous figure named Khan on a planet called Ceti Alpha V. There he would remain, secluded, alone, waiting for the day in which he would escape his exile. That day has come.

On a mission to find a lifeless planet for the scientific experiment Genesis, Chekov and his Captain, aboard the U.S.S. Reliant, stumble upon a seemingly abandoned ship. But there, Chekov would be reacquainted with Khan and learn of his devious plan; Khan is going to steal the Genesis and kill Captain Kirk.

Kirk, now an Admiral, goes on board Captain Spock's ship, the USS Enterprise, to do a routine examination. But when he gets a mysterious message from an ex-girlfriend of his, the leader of the Genesis project, he takes command and sets out to discover what's going on.

Kirk arrives, only to be ambushed by the Reliant, and, crippled, must fend for their own without hope of contacting help, including the Federation. But Kirk will not let Khan have the last laugh, even if it means risking his ship, crew, and everything he holds dear.

MOVIE REVIEW

In Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Kirk and the crew battle a robotic intelligence. In The Wrath of Khan, they battle a human (well, sort of) which results in a much thicker plot and rich interaction between hero and villain. Khan is the perfect psychopath and William Shatner delivers one of his strongest performances. The story is superior to it's predecessor though the graphics in The Motion Picture seemed to be better, even though it was created three years before. The Wrath of Khan is by far the saddest of all the movie but luckily, The Search for Spock makes amends. If you don't mind sub par graphics, The Wrath of Khan is one of the better "Star Trek" movies.
