With Excelsior in hot pursuit the Enterprise goes to warp for the final time to rescue a comrade from which she will not return.
I only watched Star Trek 3: The Search for Spock all the way through recently as I bought the original motion picture collection for the bargain price of £20. Once I saw this scene I had to a render of it, what really took me by surprise on the original scene was how well it was done. The Starship movement was smooth and fluid especially when the Excelsior swung underneath Spacedock in pursuit of the Enterprise.
