'Star Trek III: The Search for Spock' (1984) Adm. Kirk and the crew of the USS Enterprise went looking for Spock's regenerated body on the artificially created planet of Genesis, but also encountered a squad of Klingons spoiling for a fight and a planet rapidly falling apart. The climax has Kirk fighting for his life against the Klingon Cmdr. Kruge ( Christopher Lloyd) as the earth rips in two around them. Not as much an earthquake as an "earthsmash," the battle saw William Shatner deliver one of his most memorable Kirk-isms, knocking the evil Klingon off into the fiery pit while shouting, "I have had... enough... of YOU!"
