Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989) (part 13 of 13)
On the (now-crimson [?]) surface of the Planet Mauvejave, Kirk has fled the shuttle, which had begun to blow up, and is now climbing up some rocks. (I’m not sure where he is, because the shuttle was parked way out in the flats, but whatever.) The Angry Face of God pursues him, and I’m totally waiting for it to scream that the penis is evil. But all we get is inarticulate squealing, and lots of eye-bolts that totally fail to hit anywhere near Kirk. Finally, Kirk reveals his decades of tactical training by climbing to the top of the ridge, and presenting a perfectly exposed target against the night sky.
The God-being wails “Yoooouuuu!!” one more time, and gets ready to shoot eye-bolts at Kirk. But at the last second, the Klingon ship appears dramatically behind Kirk and blasts God to smithereens. Yay, the Klingons killed God! Wow, Nietzsche was way off on that one.
Kirk assumes he’s next, and the Klingons’ gun-turret actually turns on him (this will be really funny when we see who’s at the controls), but instead, he’s beamed aboard the Klingon ship.
