    Synopsis


    Star Trek: The Motion Picture
    When plans to launch a second Star Trek television series in the late 1970s were scrapped by Paramount Pictures, the show's creator, Gene Roddenberry, instead transformed the aborted program's 2-hour pilot into this big budget theatrical feature. Five years after the legendary voyages of the starship Enterprise, James T. Kirk (William Shatner) is an unhappy, desk-bound admiral at Starfleet headquarters. Kirk goes aboard his old vessel to observe its re-launch under new captain Will Decker (Stephen Collins). Soon, however, an escalating crisis causes Kirk to take command of his old ship. A mysterious, planet-sized energy force of enormous power is headed for Earth. Reunited with Spock (Leonard Nimoy), Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy (DeForest Kelley), and the rest of his former colleagues, Kirk takes the Enterprise inside the massive energy cloud and discovers that it is the long-lost NASA space probe Voyager. Now a sentient being after accumulating centuries of knowledge in its deep space travels, the alien, which calls itself V'ger, has come home seeking its creator. Although not a critical home run, box office receipts for Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) were strong enough to inspire a revamped television series and a long-running line of theatrical sequels. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

    Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
    Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is fondly regarded as being the closest in spirit to the 1966-69 TV series that spawned it. Admiral Kirk (William Shatner) escapes the tedium of a desk job to join Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy (DeForest Kelley) on another space mission. While boldly going where no man etc. etc., Kirk crosses the path of his old enemy Khan (Ricardo Montalban), who as any die-hard Trekker can tell you, was the chief antagonist in the 1966 Trek TV episode "Space Seed." Leading a crew of near-savage space prisoners, Khan insinuates himself into the Genesis Project, which is designed to introduce living organisms on long-dead planets. Intending to harness this program for his own despotic purposes, Khan engages in battle with the Enterprise crew. ~ Daniel Gelb, Rovi

      Good Value-For-Money Double Feature Vs. Boxed Sets

      I will spare posting an overly-verbose critique of these two films, given that true, die-hard Star Trek fans (or Trekkies) all have their own passionate opinions about each of the Trek films (12 so far, with a 13th coming up). I would like to focus, however, on the practical side of having the movies released on DVD in pairs, as "Double Features," comprising two discs in one box. I have nothing against the Boxed Sets, per se (such as The Original Series Cast Set and/or The Next Generation Cast Set), but they can be quite pricey, whether online or on retail. Given my earning vs. spending capacity, buying them semi-piecemeal like this, usually every other payday, makes more sense. After almost three months, I have already completed all of the first 10 movies. Of course, for the first two Re-Boot films with the new cast, I have these as individual DVDs.
