Nerd Lunch Episode 138: Drill Down: Star Trek the Motion Picture
For this episode of Nerd Lunch we return to our Drill Downs on the Star Trek movie franchise. Back in episode 06 we looked at Generations and First Contact. Then in episode 46 we looked at Insurrection and Nemesis. Today, we go back to the beginning and watch the very first Star Trek movie, The Motion Picture.
We talk about our first experiences with this movie, we talked about what we liked and didn’t like. We discuss the endless naval gazing, giant sphincters and terrycloth uniforms. And we ponder the place this movie has in the pantheon of other Star Trek films. It’s a good discussion on the first movie. Come join us.
