Trekking With Tim, Day One: Star Trek: The Motion Picture

by |


RT Editor's log, Stardate 1321.7: These are my voyages on the Starship Enterprise. My 11-day mission: to explore the strange world of the Star Trek film franchise, to seek out a new understanding of the venerable sci-fi series, to boldly go where I have never gone before. First, a little about me, and why I think I'm particularly suited to this project: I am a Star Trek agnostic. However, I can't deny that Star Trek continues to exert a powerful hold on the collective pop culture consciousness, as evidenced by the buzz surrounding J.J. Abrams' forthcoming reboot. Thus, I have immersed myself in Trek lore, and I will attempt to evaluate the series' 11 films with a mix of Spock-like logic and Bones-esque vigor.Back to Article
