26 July 1999 | John-405
Pearls before trekkies -- The only truly great movie in the series.
Naturally it is not loved in America, where any attempt to provide something other than a dumbed-down FX blockbuster is scorned. Yes, the premise is absurd, but, geeze, all the ST premises are absurd. What, you think warp drive, transporters and planets where *aliens* speak *English* are believable? C'mon -- what would ST be without absurd premises?

I love the message, too, that our maniacal quest for god is corruption -- and that when we think we're staring god in the face what we're really looking at is the worst in US. Our gods reflect back at us our arrogance and lust for power. Great point. Too bad the studio felt the need to reign in Shatner's story to make it more politically correct, but the outline of his radical idea remains.

This movie gave me a new respect for a series that I had thought of previously as being merely a lot of entertaining fluff. Thanks go to paramount for giving it the green light. Sad to say that, only a decade later, nothing like this could make it past the Hollywood studio PC censors.
