A fairly cheeky swipe at the Soviet Union, describing exile to the prison mines (Siberia) of the Klingon Evil Empire with its brutal, barbaric ways (the Soviet Union) while the shining and good Federation (the US) is trying to make a truce.

After an explosion on Klingon moon Praxis, the Klingon home world has fifty years before it will start to die off. The Klingons have one chance for life - join the Federation and end the war.

When the Enterprise and Excelsior travel to Klingon territory to facilitate treaty negotiations, the Klingon ambassador is assassinated. They try and convict Kirk and McCoy and imprison them in a penal colony where Kirk still can't keep his knob out of the local chicks.

Meanwhile, Spock and the rest of the crew try to figure out who's set them up. As predictable and exciting as any Star Trek plot and so satisfying on the whole. Also better looking with each new films where the special effects budgets are more than paper maché rocks and aliens made out of tangled garden hose.
