Plot Summary: When the newly-christened starship Enterprise's shakedown cruise goes poorly, Captain Kirk and crew put it into Spacedock for repairs. But an urgent mission interrupts their Earth-bound shore leave. A renegade Vulcan named Sybok has taken several ambassadors hostage on the planet Nimbus III, an event which also attracts the attention of a Klingon captain who wants to make a name for himself. Sybok's rag-tag army captures the Enterprise and takes it on a journey to the center of the galaxy in search of the Supreme Being.
What's to discuss? It sucks.
Why the **** did God need a space ship?
Row, row, row your boa...DEAR GOD, MAKE IT STOP!
“What is earnest is not always true; on the contrary, error is often more earnest than truth.”
I think everyone summed up my feelings quite nicely.
"No amount of careful planning can ever replace dumb luck."
I've seen better. But I've also seen worse.
"I'd like to be a race car passenger, just the guy that bugs the driver. 'Can I turn on the radio? You should slow down. Why we gotta keep going in circles? Man, you really like Tide.'"
- Mitch Hedberg
I may be in the minority here, but I enjoyed Final Frontier more than both Search for Spock and Generations.
First off, the humor is good, especially the Kirk-Spock-Bones dialogue.
Second of all, the score is awesome. I'm a sucker for the TMP/TNG theme--it just gives me goosebumps!
Also, the plot is more lighthearted and thus more TOS. After the darkness of Search for Spock, this one is certaintly a relief.
And, I love the design of the Consitution-Refit Enterprise-A. They just need to get it working right.
Final Grade: B+
Hey, hey, hey.
Some good came out of this movie!
That Duckman parody with Khan Chicken was priceless.
"In an universe where nothing that we do matters, the only thing that matters is what we do."
I liked it also, though I would put most of the other Trek movies above it. But I liked the humor and loved the ending (everything on the planet where they confronted "God"). IMO, the worse was the first.Originally Posted by AnimatedSnow47
