Episode ST.1: Star Trek: The Motion Picture, part 1

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

In terms of production design, they really changed things from the colourful uniforms of the original series days. It looks like someone on the Starfleet uniform design committee had a fetish about beige and grey.

It's nice to see they gave Grace Lee Whitney a part in this film (reprising the character of Janice Rand) after how she was treated during the original series.

And yes, Will Decker is the son of Commodore Decker from The Doomsday Machine. Not that you'd know it from anything said during the film.

Since the films are longer than one-hour episodes, each film will be presented in two parts. Tune in next week for part 2 of The Motion Picture!
