Spock appears the hippie, while Kirk comes off as a Captain Nemo type sailor in modern day America.

He shows a manufacturing plant how to make a new exotic material in exchange for their help. Chekov, is captured onboard a military locale and is deemed a Russian by American authorities. He nearly dies in American hospitals. Dr McCoy appearing as a wild banche continues with his classic doctors are butchers in this century speeches. His brand of medicine is just waiving a wand over the injured and watching them just magically get well. Ultimately the whales are saved and the mission is a success for the Enterprise. While not sci-fi oriented or action oriented as much as some of the other Trek films, this is one of the most entertaining Star Trek films to watch.
