Star Trek: The Motion Picture

In 1979 I went to see Star Trek the Motion Picture. As a nine year old, I became bored pretty quickly, so I jumped to a different screen and watched Black Hole. As an adult, Star Trek: TMP is by far my favorite of the two films. I don’t regret jumping ship, as it were. The Black Hole was a bit more fun and had a ton of robots. What more could a kid ask for? Especially post Star Wars.

Leonard Nimoy as Mr. Spock, my favorite martian… err, Vulcan.

Fast forward 40 years, and ST:TMP is still at the top of my Trek film list. Yeah, I know… don’t @ me. We rewatched it this evening, and I am still noticing new things in this film that I previously had missed before. On average, I watch this one at least once a year, sometimes more. Tonight my biggest takeaway was that Isaac Asimov was the scientific advisor to the film! Very cool 🙂
