Amazing, gorgeous image as always!  :)

Star Trek: The Motion Picture is playing for its 40th anniversary in mid-September at a theater near where I live - I'll be watching it at least twice.  Is it wrong that I love ST:TMP so much?  I'm not saying it's the best, but I saw it at just the right time in my young life to make an ever-lasting fond impression/memory.

Live long and prosper!  :)

It's OK, my personal favorite underrated gem is The Final Frontier

And mine is Generations, but who's counting? :P

Actually, my only real gripe with Final Frontier is the...we'll say subpar...special effects it used, but we can blame Paramount for being cheapskates for that. Otherwise, Final Frontier is a campy, but fun, Trek film. :D

As for TMP, if you're just wanting a film with lots of excellent special effects for the era, then TMP's definitely your film. But if you're after a film with a engaging, well-written plot, well...not so much. TMP's plot does come together and become intriguing towards the end, right about where Spock does his spacewalk scene...but it's slow-going until then, sadly. It's a plot that probably would've worked better as the TV episode pilot it was originally conceived as than a full-length feature film, but so much for regrets.

Gorgeous shot! I seriously do not understand why TMP gets so much guff from Star Trek fans. It's one of the few movies that really embodies the "seek out new life-forms" part of Trek.

Thank you very much!

TMP needs to be re-evaluated for its merits. Also TFF. Both great movies, yet all people know them for their shortcomings.

As the enterprise slowly moved closer towards the unknown phenomenon, the bridge officers looked on with a mixture of curiosity and intrepidation, this thing had vaporized three Klingon attack cruisers and the starfleet listening post near the Klingon neutral zone, leaving not a trace for no apparent reason
