The Human Adventure Was Just Beginning….
December 7th, 1979 — Star Trek: The Motion Picture opened in theaters.
For all the crap people throw at this moving as “the boring one” — it’s still one of my favorites, mostly by virtue of my memories of being 10 years old and finally seeing my favorite TV show made into a movie that I was convinced was as cool as Star Wars. I remember sitting, absolutely thrilled by the nearly 8 minute long unveiling of the new Enterprise… and I remember coming out of the theater to the sight of the sunset behind some fairly ominous storm clouds, and my Dad pointing out “Look! V’Ger!”
30 years. Wow.
