| Everything I love about Star Trek is in this episode
I love this episode because it is the best of Roddenberry's vision of the future and of how Star Trek portrayed it. Humans working together. Humor. Friendship, dedication, and loyalty. Good science (within the framework of the ST universe). The acting was brilliant. The various characters were each at their best. Their chemistry together was perfect. I can't watch this movie without both smiling and tearing up.
