Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home is a 1986 American science fiction film released by Paramount Pictures. It is the fourth feature film in the series and completes the story arc begun in The Wrath of Khan and continued in The Search for Spock. Unlike previous Star Trek films, The Voyage Home was shot exclusively on location; many real settings and buildings were used as stand-ins for scenes set around and in the city of San Francisco.
Paramount asked Nicholas Meyer, the writer and director of Wrath of Khan, to help rewrite a script already conceived from a story by Nimoy and Harve Bennett. Meyers wrote the middle portion of the script, when the Enterprise crew are on present-day earth; whereas, writing partner Bennett wrote the first quarter of the story and handled the ending. Nimoy said Meyer gave the script “the kind of humor and social comment, gadfly attitude I very much wanted.” Meyer’s recalls, “I wanted people to really have a great time watching this film [and] if somewhere in the mix we lobbed a couple of big ideas at them, well, then that would be even better.”
The Voyage Home premiered in North America on Thanksgiving weekend, November 26, 1986. It was the top-grossing film in the weekend box office. The film made 39.6 million in its first five days of release. In its first week, The Voyage Home ended Crocodile Dundee’s (another Paramount release) 8-week reign at the American box office. The film’s humor and unconventional story were well received be critics, fans of the series and the general audience. The film earned several awards and four Academy Award nominations for its cinematography and audio. It was dedicated to the crew of the Space Shuttle Challenger, which broke up 72 seconds after takeoff on the morning of January 28, 1986. Principal photography for The Voyage Home began four weeks after Challenger and her crew were lost.
