The Motion Picture.
It’s called “The Motionless Picture” by many, and spends its days and nights hanging out in the cellar along with Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. But there’s so much more to The Motion Picture than five-minute beauty passes, excessively revealing pastel uniforms, and a pace that would make a tortoise proud. Robert Wise’s cinematic take on Star Trek centers around an intriguing philosophical point and marked the resurrection that led to The Next Generation and all of modern Trek. In this episode of The Ready Room we’re joined by Michael Fisher as we discuss the good, the bad, and the just plain ridiculous of Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
In news we cover Microsoft’s universal translator, upcoming IDW comics, Anthony Montgomery’s graphic novel Miles Away, and Jordan Hoffman’s top ten transporter moments. Plus we reveal our first-ever rejected Star Trek: The Motion Picture plot.
