Product Description

Product Description

The U.S.S. Enterprise is dispatched to intercept an earthbound attacker destroying everything in its wake.


Back when the first Star Trek feature was released in December 1979, the Trek franchise was still relatively modest, consisting of the original TV series, an animated cartoon series from 1973-74, and a burgeoning fan network around the world. Series creator Gene Roddenberry had conceived a second TV series, but after the success of Star Wars the project was upgraded into this lavish feature film, which reunited the original series cast aboard a beautifully redesigned starship U.S.S. Enterprise. Under the direction of Robert Wise (best known for West Side Story), the film proved to be a mixed blessing for Trek fans, who heatedly debated its merits; but it was, of course, a phenomenal hit. Capt. Kirk (William Shatner) leads his crew into the vast structures surrounding V'Ger, an all-powerful being that is cutting a destructive course through Starfleet space. With his new First Officer (Stephen Collins), the bald and beautiful Lieutenant Ilia (played by the late Persis Khambatta) and his returning veteran crew, Kirk must decipher the secret of V'Ger's true purpose and restore the safety of the galaxy. The story is rather overblown and derivative of plots from the original series, and avid Trekkies greeted the film's bland costumes with derisive laughter. But as a feast for the eyes, this is an adventure worthy of big-screen trekkin'. Douglas Trumbull's visual effects are astonishing, and Jerry Goldmith's score is regarded as one of the prolific composer's very best (with its main theme later used for Star Trek: The Next Generation). And, fortunately for Star Trek fans, the expanded 143-minute version (originally shown for the film's network TV premiere) is generally considered an improvement over the original theatrical release. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

Format: DVD
Well, I can admit to not being the biggest fan of this film, but I've seen it enough times to realise its charm, its sci-fi qualities, its epic feel and so on. But has the Motion-less Picture been improved with this extensive reworking? Well, at the moment its the only Trek film DVD I own...
Well, the DVD certainly offers value for money - three documentaries looking at Star Trek: Phase II's development into a film (I didn't know that Paramount changed their minds about whether to have a Trek series or film four times!! :)), plus two commentaries - one text by Mike Okuda, offering loads of trivia-tidbits, and another group one by Robert Wise (director), Douglas Trumball (special photographic effects director), John Dykstra (special photographic effects supervisor), Jerry Goldsmith (composer) and Stephen Collins (Commander Decker). Oh, and the film itself in its reworked glory. :)
Well, the cut of the film has changed the early pace - it runs a little faster now, despite the running time being a few minutes longer than originally! The shot of San Francisco when Kirk lands in his shuttle is amazing. We actually get to see what V'Ger looks like now (and where it may look to advanced and weird, it was actually suggested in the original storyboards in 1979.) New SFX also stop quiet scenes from becoming dull now - and the horrible SFX they had when V'Ger dissolves the Klingon vessels at the start has, thankfully, changed. :)
Well, I could go on forever, but what has happened is that Rob Wise has made subtle changes that have improved the film's quality here and there. Along with all the extra features mentioned, this is certainly worth the money and will have fans crying out for more Star Trek (insert film name) Director's Edition DVDs in the future.

Format: Blu-ray
The film that brought 'Gene Rodenberry's' futuristic and inspired TV seies to
the 'Big-Screen'
We start with an unidentified alien phenomenon on course for Earth destroying
everything. in it's path, a Klingon attack on it fails
'Admiral James Kirk' persuades Star-Ship command to return him to active service
to take command of the revampt ' S.S. Enterprise.
He gives orders to have the ship ready for launch within eight hours, way ahead of
The 'Enterprise' is the only Star-Ship' within range of the oncoming intruder into
Federation Space.
The 'Enterprise' Captain has arranged for 'Bones' to re-join the crew ahead of it's
launch, his old team almost complete.
'Captain Kirk' realizes he needs the Commander 'Captain Decker' more than he at
first anticipated.
As interception time gets closer the old team is finally completed as 'Mr Spock' joins
the 'Enterprise' taking over the post of 'Science Officer'
As they approach the intruder 'Spock' realizes the phenomenon is attempting to make
contact with them, 'Spock's' response adverts further attack upon them.
The unidentified vessel appears to be capable of generating more power than 100
Star-Ships combined could.
The entity uses new crew member 'Ilia' to communicate with the 'Enterprise' command.
The encounter with the vessel is proving mysterious giving rise to concerns over Earths
very existence, what does V-GER want from Earth ?
The intruder seems to be looking for answers.....

Format: DVD
When Academy Award winning director Robert Wise released the first Star Trek film back in 1979 he, like George Lucas, wasn't content with the final cut or special effects, which were imperfect mainly due to timing constraints. 22 years later and Wise has reworked the film in every respect.
There are a few versions of Star Trek the motion picture, but this isn't the culmination of all the footage available combined into one long version. In fact, in total it's only 5 minutes longer than the original theatrical version. The (5) scenes that are taken out / deleted from the original version are on the second disc thankfully plus 11 scenes missing from all previous versions. It's more replacement and enhancement. For example, Spock's ceremony on Vulcan, the visuals of the landscape are brand new (huge statues everywhere). New special effects from Foundation Imaging are also present, including a new computer generated Enterprise plus other sequences have been tweaked.
It's digitally remastered, the sound mix is new, there are new special effects, new scenes (and trimmed old scenes). In short, it's 70% of the original movie.
However, it's not perfect, it feels very different. Some of the re-editing has really helped it. There were 2 really dodgy scenes involving Ilya and Decker in the original where he sets a new course after the wormhole and she crassly responds with "Science officer's computation's confirmed sir" then they both smile at each other. While this line has been removed, the smile is inserted earlier in the film when the ship is leaving the solar system. A good decision. Secondly, Chekov's hand injury is nicely underscored with some music. I feel that too many of the scenes have been shortened or deleted.
