Star Trek: The Motion Picture

The crew of The Enterprise hit the silver screen for the first time to fight a mysterious alien being that threatens the earth. The plot will especially appeal to Star Trek fans, but unfortunately, to no one else. It's rather joyous to see the beloved Star Trek cast in a full-length movie doing what they do best: travel in space. This film features great special effects (for its time), and an exceptional musical score; both picking up an Oscar nomination. The film, however, is very slow-paced and can become very tedious to some viewers, but is a recommended film to any big science fiction fan. Followed by 8 sequels with more on the way!
