picard got short end of stick in 'generations'.

the writers, ignoring the tv ep 'lessons', have him blubbing about his dead family and losing a fight with soran.

this underminds him as captain compared to kirk when they meet in the nexus.

at least they got to show him being a badass in 'first contact'.

The problem is that First Contact becomes action schlock and contradicts episodes where Picard gets over that stuff (I, Borg)

no shlock-the fight with the borg on the defector dish is one of the best set pieces in a trek movie.

i blame paramount penny pinching for 'final frontier'.

sure, 'final froniter'' was caught out by a writers strike so had to go into production without a completed script.

the real problem was paramount not putting in enough money to support a sequel to one of their biggest earners.

and why they thought they could get away with releasing a trek movie with such sub standard effects i do not know.



it cannot take much to upgrade the fx shots in similar fashion to the OS blu rays and the TMP 2001 edition.

It's decent but I like the first half better when the cast all have something to do and the pacing is better. Not that keen on Christopher Lloyd (in this I mean) or the death of David - though I think it works as a payoff in STVI.

real problem with trek V is wasting david warner in a no nothing role.
at least trek VI and TNG made up for that.

The real problem is they had an effects budget of 26 dollars

I seem to recall that Shatner put his faith in an un-tested SFX company for much of the effects and they delivered... well, shit basically.

I might have this wrong, I got it from one of his multiple autobiographies...

bran ferran-who did better work on 'altered states'

like I said paramount penny pinched by not getting a fx shop as good as ILM for trek V.

OK, might get some shit for this, but just re-watched INTO DARKNESS and I think it's my favourite ST movie...

Great story, terrific action scenes... I just wish Mr Cumberbatch wasn't 'KHHHAAAANNNN'... seems like a pointless nod to the second ST movie when he was a great villain in his own right....

IMO anyway.

shame TMP is actually doing ok as a movie, bringing the crew back together and launching the enterprise.

but it grinds to a halt when exploring v'ger with seemingly endless effect shots.
