The screenplay for Star Trek II was written by director Nicholas Meyer, compiled from a number of drafts which all contained one or several dominant themes. One element was clearly going to be central to the audience's emotional response. Meyer explained: \\"Once you decide that you're going to have the death of Spock, then how does that affect the other people? Why is it there? I got a lot of stick from a lot of people from the very beginning about the idea of killing Spock. Somebody said, 'Yo...
Despite its weaknesses, Star Trek: The Motion Picture had been a box-office success, so it came as no surprise that Paramount Pictures decided to develop a sequel. Gene Roddenberry's first proposed storyline saw the Enterprise crew going back in time to make sure the Klingons did not stop the John F. Kennedy assassination. This idea was rejected and Roddenberry was forced to step into the background as \\"executive consultant\\" (at the request of Paramount executives who blamed him for the relat...

- Nicholas Meyer
When they arrive, the Enterprise is inexplicably fired on by the Reliant. Khan finally reveals himself from the bridge of the Reliant, demanding that Kirk give him the Genesis information. Kirk pulls a brilliant bluff, allowing the Enterprise precious computer time to secretly lower the shields of the other starship. The Enterprise then damages the Reliant, forcing the captured starship to withdraw for the moment.
It is the 23rd century. The Federation Starship U.S.S. Enterprise™ is on routine training maneuvers and Admiral James T. Kirk (William Shatner) seems resigned to the fact that this inspection may well be the last space mission of his career. But Khan is back. Aided by his exiled band of…

In 2285, the USS Reliant was on a survey mission to find a suitable location for Project Genesis, a Federation project to turn an uninhabitable world into an M-class planet. While examining what they thought was Ceti Alpha VI, Captain Terrell and his first officer, Commander Pavel Chekov, were captured by Khan and his followers. He implanted each with Ceti eels and learned not only why they had come to the planet, but also where he may find James T. Kirk. Shortly afterward, Khan and his people took control of the Reliant, marooned the crew on Ceti Alpha V, and headed for the Regula I space station.
Meanwhile, the now-Admiral Kirk was inspecting the USS Enterprise when he received a transmission from Doctor Carol Marcus, who was stationed at Regula I. Chekov had already hailed her and had told the station's science team that Starfleet was taking control of Project Genesis now, the order coming directly from James Kirk. The rusewas quite effective; Marcus' team had been operating independently of the Federation on their project and Khan knew that they would contact Kirk and ask to confirm the order, bringing him to the remote science outpost Regula I. When communication was broken, Kirk ordered the starship to proceed to Regula I. While en route, they came face-to-face with the Reliant, which initially failed to open communications. In a serious lapse in judgment, Kirk disregarded Starfleet regulations dictating a defensive posture when encountering a non-communicative ship. As a result, Khan opened fire in a surprise attack, severely damaging most of the Enterprise's key system...
The Enterprise fled towards the nebula, with the Reliant in pursuit, even firing a photon torpedo that deliberately missed the Enterprise's starboard nacelle pylon, as a deterrent against going into the nebula. However, knowing the limitations of fighting within the nebula, the Reliant refrained from entering until Kirk opened communications and taunted Khan into pursuing the Enterprise into the nebula. Once they entered, both ships found that their shields were disabled and their visual and tactical systems were severely impaired. The conflict became a game of "hide and seek", with both vessels firing at each opportunity they got. On the second opportunity of firing, the Enterprise was just aft of the Reliant, but because phaser locks were rendered inoperable by the nebula, Sulu had little alternative but to aim them manually. As he was about to fire upon the Reliant, the Enterprise was rocked by storm activity within the nebula, jogging Sulu's aim, and the phaser fire narrowly mis...
The surviving Enterprise crewmembers held a funeral for Spock and sent his body to the Genesis Planet in a photon torpedo casing. They rescued the crew of the Reliant from Ceti Alpha V and returned to Earth. There, Spock's father, Sarek, revealed to Kirk that, in order to return Spock's katra to Vulcan, his body would need to be recovered and returned to Mount Seleya. However, the Genesis Planet had since been declared off-limits due to the controversy surrounding the use of the Genesis Device – the Klingon Empire feared that the Federation could use it as a weapon. However, Kirk, willing to sacrifice his career to save Spock, gathered his other senior officers and headed for the Genesis Planet. Saavik and David Marcus were there on a mission to survey the planet, but their ship was destroyed by a Klingon Bird-of-Prey, manned by Klingons who were eager to obtain information on the device. Meanwhile, Spock had been reborn by the Genesis effect, but was suffering rapid aging. The plan...

The battle, as ultimately visualized, was conceived by Production Designer Joe Jennings and Art Director Mike Minor. At the "Star Trek Designers Talk Trek History At Art Directors Guild Event" in 2009, Jennings recalled how the battle was originally scripted as having the two vessels pounding at each other at close range in open space. He considered the battle thus scripted – likening it to a man-o'-war slugging match from the era of sail – ludicrous, pointing out that, more realistically, sp...
According to the computer game Star Trek: Starfleet Academy, a recreation of this battle is now a standard training simulation at Starfleet Academy. Its primary educationalpurposes are to reinforce the importance of taking proper precautions when approaching a non-communicative ship (even a Starfleet vessel) and then to practice space combat in poor sensory conditions.
