It is the 23rd century. Admiral James T. Kirk (William Shatner) is an instructor at Starfleet Academy and feeling old; the prospect of attending his ship, the USS Enterprise, on a two-week training cruise for cadets does not make him feel any younger. But the cruise becomes a deadly serious mission when his old nemesis Khan Noonien Singh (Ricardo Mantalban) appears after years of exile determined to give Kirk a dirt nap.
