Today marks the 42 anniversary of my favorite Star Trek movie, The Motion Picture. Relive the love we’ve given this film over the years with these links:
First, here’s the TMP Redux I did earlier this year that rewrites the end of the film.
Next, check out a threaded live tweeting I did last year of Gene Roddenberry’s TMP novelization. Learn all the crazy stuff that didn’t make it into the film without having to read 300 pages
