Star Trek trekking 4:"Star trek IV: The Voyage Home"
The fourth movie in Star Trek saga. Directed by Leonard Nimoy and released in 1986 by Paramount Pictures.
The more I see of this movies the more I like them. This one is especially entertaining. Really good and enticing plot with lots of messages to think about.
The idea that the humpback whales are more advanced species than humans but at the same times we managed to exterminate them is a great mind twister. It challenges the human way of thinking and our premises that if we can kill something that it is below us. Also, the idea that whales are more advanced than humans but they do not use technology is very interesting. Why should we use tech is ultimate happiness can be achieved without it?
Humor in this movie is excellent and at the same time makes you laugh and think. Sending a Russian guy to harvest energy from U.S. Navy ship while is funny also shows us that grave mistakes can be made honestly when we are lacking a context in which we are operating. And there is a plenty of other gags to laugh at.
If you hadn't seen this movie yet, you need to do that! I can recommend it to everybody and not just to Star Trek or sci-fi fans.
