I thought it was fun. Sometimes, that's all I ask from a movie.

I like Miracle Monday just as much. Love them both!

Star Trek 5 is the only Star Trek that my father refused to own. As a result, I didn't get to see it until I took matters into my own hands and borrowed it from the library. I still kind of wish I hadn't. Uhura was unspoiled, once. . . .

From the darkest recesses of William Shatner's mind. . . .

Uh, what did I miss and/or repress? I don't remember anything weird.

The two of them were given a romance completely out of the blue and completely without chemistry. You must've repressed it, because PTSD is the only other option.

Also regarding Uhura: The fan dance. Ugh, that 20-years-too-late-to-be-sexy fan dance. . . .

With all due respect to Nichelle Nichols, there are some things you just don't want to see when you've just had dinner.

I think I haven't seen it in 15 years. I went online and read the plot synopsis. I don't think I remember half of what happened. Which is odd, I usually have a great memory for this kind of thing.

Your subconscious mind has erased the memory for your own protection. Personally, I've tried to blank out the whole movie.

Maybe. I've often wondered why there's so much hate for that movie, when all I remembered a fun adventure movie. I'm starting to think it's because there's a lot I don't remember.
Although knowing that Shatner wrote the original screenplay and directed, it does seem self-serving that Kirk is the only one who doesn't "need" Sybok's help. I like Shatner, a lot, but he does seem to have spent a lot of time with a really big head.

Have you ever read *his* series of novels dealing with Kirk's return from the dead?

I read the first three, I think. I enjoyed them, as it really bothered me that Kirk died. I liked the idea that he came back in some way.

I liked those books, too. They were the definition of Mary Sue-ing, of course, but I didn't mind because---like you---I didn't want Kirk dead. Well, and I was also 14 or so which meant every story I wrote was ALSO somewhat Mary Sued. Maybe I'd look at them more harshly now, I don't know. I'd rather not find out because the memories are warm and fuzzy.

I must admit, I liked the way V'Ger was tied in with the Borg. That made sense.

Yeah, there were some really cool things in there. I imagine most of them came from his co-writer, though. . . .

I suspect that most of the book came from his co-writer. Everything except the words "William Shatner" on the cover, in fact! Razz
