Rare Daybill Poster with Bob Peak artwork.Star Trek V: The Final Frontier is a 1989 American science fiction film directed by William Shatner and based on the television series Star Trek created by Gene Roddenberry. It is the fifth instalment in the Star Trek film series and takes place shortly after the events of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986). Its plot follows the crew of the USS Enterprise-A as they confront the renegade Vulcan Sybok who is searching for God at the centre of the galaxy. The film was directed by cast member William Shatner, following two films directed by his co-star Leonard Nimoy. Shatner also developed the initial storyline, in which Sybok searches for God but instead finds a devil; his primary inspiration was the phenomenon of televangelism and the high potential for fraud among its practitioners. Sean Connery was originally contacted to star in the role of Sybok but was busy with Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. The mythical planet Sha Ka Ree was named in his honour. The Final Frontier was released in North America on June 9, 1989. It had the highest opening gross of any Star Trek film at that point and was number one in its first week at the box office. The Final Frontier grossed $49,566,330 in the domestic box office for a global total of $63 million.
