'''''The Search for Spock''''' begins shortly after [[Spock|Spock's]] funeral in [[Star Trek II:  The Wrath of Khan]].  The damage the ''[[Enterprise (TOS)|USS Enterprise]]'' sustained has been patched up and the ship is limping home to [[Spacedock]], supposedly for repairs.  Upon arrival at spacedock though, the intrepid crew are shocked to learn that their heavily damaged ship is scheduled for decommission. With the commissioning of the new ''[[USS Excelsior]]'' starfleet probably feels the ship is obsolete.

[[James T. Kirk|Kirk's]] son [[David]] along with Lt [[Saavik]] have been reassigned to the ''[[USS Grissom]]'' to study the newly formed [[Genesis device|Genesis planet]].  The two of them beam down to the surface when they detect a life form on the surface that there wasn't supposed to be.  They find Spock's burrial robe in the torpedoe casing that held his body, but the body is nowhere to be found.

[[Leonard McCoy|Dr. McCoy]] begins behaving very strangely.  He breaks into Spock's sealed quarters on the ''Enterprise'' on their way home, asking Kirk why he left him on Genesis.  McCoy later attempts to charter a ship to the Genesis planet but the planet has been guarantined, largely due to the controversy over the entire Genesis project and its potential as a weapon.  The attempt lands McCoy in a psychiactric ward after he attempts to give the [[Vulcan nerve pinch]] to a Federation security officer.

Spock's father, [[Sarek]] pays Kirk a visit, and also demand to know why Kirk left Spock on Genesis.  Sarek explains that he believes Kirk is carrying Spock's [[katra]] and that Kirk has an obligation to return to [[Vulcan]].  Kirk replies again that he doesn't know what is going on.  Sarek [[Vulcan mind meld|mind melds]] with Kirk and learns Spock's katra is not there.  They consult the ''Enterprise's'' logs and learn that Spock had mind melded with McCoy instead and that is the reasons for the Doctor's bizarre behavior.

The ''Enterprise'' is detected by the BOP on approach and Kruge beams back to the ship and [[Cloaking device|cloaks]] his ship.  The Enterprise arrives looking for the ''Grissom'' but obviously is unable to find the destroyed ship.  They do notice some kind of energy shimmer which they deduce is from a cloaked ship, which they target with their weapons.  The Bird of Prey decloaks and the Enterprise fires, causing slight damage.  The BOP returns fire, knocking out Scotty's jury-rigged controls and the ship is crippled.  Kruge demands the surrender, and to prove he means business, orders one of the three on the surface killed, which inadvertantly ends up being David.  Kirk agrees to surrender but sets the ship to self-destruct and he, McCoy, Scotty, Sulu and [[Pavel Chekov|Chekov]] watch their beloved ship burn up in the atmosphere with several of Kruge's crew aboard the doomed vessel.  They then set off to find Saavic and Spock.

The planet begins to self-destruct.  In his impatience, David used unpredictable materials in it and the planet is beginning to pay the price for it.  The earthquqakes cause several Klingons to fall to their deaths, leaving Saavik and Spock largely ungarded by the time Kirk and company arrive.  Kruge however, gets the best of them all and wants to fight Kirk to the death.  The other humans and Saavik are beamed to the BOP, where they are able to take ovver the crew-depleted ship.  Kruge and Kirk fight with Kirk eventually kicking Kruge into a large lava flow.  Kirk, speaking Klingon into a captured communicator, orders them beamed aboard the Klingon ship.  As the BOP leaves orbit, we see the planet below tearing itself apart (in direct contradiction to the laws of Gravity no less).

The BOP flies to Vulcan where they are able to remove Spock's katra from McCoy and return it to his body.  Spock is alive, although his memory is lacking.
