    It is the 23rd century. The Federation starship U.S.S. Enterprise is on routine training manoeuvers, 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!

    Co-starring Kirstie Alley (Cheers) in her stunning motion picture debut.

    The best movie in the Star trek franchise finally arrives on DVD. Picture quality is superb. As usual the disc has very little in the way of extras, sporting just a trailer but with a movie this good it shouldn`t stop adding this to your must buy list.

    I remember seeing this classic when i was a kid and I loved it at first sight.So it was just a matter of time that I would get this to Dvd and enjoy the feelings of early 80`s once again.
    It was great that the movie had the same feeling as years ago and with so good video and audio transfer I was just thrilled of joy.Wrath Of Khan is the best Star Trek film ever and it should be in every Trek fan`s collection.The price for me was quite high (about 36$ US) , but what a heck, nostalgy is priceless.The only lack is features and there`s nothing else than a trailer, but menus are quite colorful and cool.So this dvd`s overall is little bit over 8, but still "a must buy", well for me it was.

    This is the best Star Trek movie of the lot and has the best space battle ever. Not because of special effects (which have dated slightly) but the pacing is spot on.
    The music (James Horner) is very good also.
    Great all round (apart from the extra features) even for the non-trekkie.
