Star Trek The Motion Picture (1979) – Movie Trailer
So I do understand that this Star Trek movie is probably the least loved… Or even really liked… It is a shame because it is so good!
You have to understand that this movie brought back the original cast from a series that had been off the air for almost a decade by that point! And it did start a phenomena that has gone on long after a sizeable portion of the original series crew past away!
And for that alone I do have to say, doesn’t Star Trek The Motion Picture deserve that homage? I think so!
But for those of you who haven’t seen this movie yet, here is a little bit of information about the series!
Written by: Harold Livingston (Mission Impossible) & Directed by: Robert Wise (The Day The Earth Stood Still). Starring: William Shatner (Kingdom Of The Spiders), Leonard Nimoy (Invasion Of The Body Snatchers), Deforest Kelley (Night Of The Lepus), James Doohan (Loaded Weapon 1), Nichelle Nichols (This Bitter Earth), George Takei (Entourage) & Walter Koenig (Sworn To Justice).
A massive alien spacecraft of enormous power destroys three powerful Klingon cruisers, entering Federation space. Admiral James T. Kirk is ordered to take command of the USS Enterprise for the first time since her historic five-year mission. The Epsilon IX space station alerts the Federation, but they are also destroyed by the alien spacecraft. The only starship in range is the Enterprise–after undergoing a major overhaul at Spacedock on Earth. Kirk rounds up the rest of his crew, and acquires some new members, and sets off to intercept the alien spacecraft. However, it has been there years since Kirk last commanded the Enterprise… is he up to the task of saving Earth?
This movie really has kind of been unfairly maligned, but if you give it a chance I am sure you are going to love it! Here is the reason why!
