STII:The Wrath of Khan. Reliant was looking for a good dead planet to use for testing the Genesis project. They were looking around on Ceti Alpha V, which they thought was Ceti Alpha VI, which had actually exploded and shifted Ceti Alpha V's position. Anyway, they get captured by Khan and his superfriends and implanted with Ceti Alpha eels which let Khan control them; the eels had previously killed a bunch of his people, including his wife. Khan's crew used Reliant to steal the Genesis thing at Regula One, kill most of the people who worked there, and do a great deal of damage to Enterprise, killing some of its crew, as well. Anyway, Khan and his posse die when the Reliant gets destroyed after a big game of hide and seek with Enterprise in the Mutara nebula. But from Hell's heart, Khan stabs at Kirk by activating the Genesis Device. Spock puts his katra in McCoy, then goes to fix the antimatter reactor or whatever, and dies. But, his sacrifice allowed Enterprise to dramatically warp away moments before the Genesis wave would have destroyed them. His coffin/torpedo later gets shot out toward the newly formed Genesis Planet.
Saavik and David Marcus assigned to USS Grissom to study Genesis Planet in the Mutara Sector.
STIII:The Search For Spock. Spock is reborn on the Genesis Planet. Klingons killed David Marcus. Enterprise was set to self-destruct and blow up Klingons who beamed over to capture it. Meanwhile Enterprise crew beamed over to the Klingon ship and took control of it. They take the ship back to Vulcan, where Spock's katra is reinfused in fal-tor-pan ceremony, then he began re-education. Meanwhile the Genesis Planet disintegrated.
STIV:The Voyage Home. Klingons wanted to extradite Kirk for his crimes against them. But the Federation had first dibs on him for his violation of Starfleet regs. Anyway, Kirk and crew fly the Klingon ship back to Earth, where suddenly this alien probe is wreaking environmental havoc. So Kirk and all those folks take the bird-of-prey back to 1986 and pick up some humpback whales, George and Gracie, who they take back to the future. The whales answer the probe and it goes away. Gillian Taylor came over from the past, too, and miraculously got an immediate posting on a Federation science vessel. Kirk is demoted again to captain, and the Enterprise-A launches, under his command.
STV:The Final Frontier (apocryphal). Okay, but assuming any of it was real, Kirk, Spock, and McCoy were on a camping trip, happily scaling huge cliffs and toasting marshmelons. Then Spock's half brother Sybok seizes hostages on Nimbus III, the Planet of Galactic Peace, including Federation, Klingon, and Romulan representatives. So the Enterprise-A heads out there to fix the situation, and promptly falls into Sybok's hands, and he takes the ship all the way to the center of the galaxy, which he thinks is Sha Ka Ree (i.e., Vulcan Heaven). He uses some gimmicky mental trick to get everyone on his side. Anyway, somehow they get there, meet this big giant head who Sybok thinks is God, and God promptly kills Sybok. Then Spock, on board a Klingon ship, shoots God, apparently killing it. And then the three bestest buddies go back to camping and sing "Row Row Row Your Boat." Best line in the film: "Excuse me... what does God need with a starship?"

STVI:The Undiscovered Country. Klingon moon Praxis explodes, damaging Qo'noS. Klingons launch peace initiative cuz they need the Federation's help or whatever. Then Chancellor Gorkon got assassinated. Kirk and McCoy are convicted of the crime and imprisoned at Rura Penthe dilithium mines. Peace conference rescheduled for Camp Khitomer. Kirk and McCoy are later rescued and acquitted; the crime was committed by a conspiracy involving Starfleet admiral Cartwright and other Federation and Klingon folks. Enterprise and Excelsior prevent the conspirators from further disrupting the peace conference.
