Not for nothing I remember this when it came out. And I fell asleep on it in the theater. It took me a while to appreciate this one because it was one of those that went for a more artistic approach. I remember feeling let down and thinking well there was no way in hell that they were doing a sequel. 11 movies later several series , multiple books , and a kicking remake of the original I could not be more wrong and is one of the rare times I was proud to be wrong. But as for that movie it was Star Trek and I was and still am a huge fan so I went with it.
Trekmovie.com has a nice little piece on Star Trek TMP’s 30th anniversary with some photos and vids taken from the movie. Looking at this article I was most fascinated with the Youtube video on the production of Star Trek the Motion Picture (below for your convenience) . Looking back at how they built those sets and the models of the Starships it was clearly an art. Not saying that today’s is not. But computer graphics compared to hand built models and huge sets can not compare.
