  1. After doing a little research on Star Trek V and finding out how many problems happened, it is a miracle the film got made at all. ILM wasn't available, budget cuts, strikes, rewrites, prop issues, studio meddling, and rushed into production by Paramount. You know, I think I appreciate the film more with what they DID manage to accomplish! Oh and the Enterprise model had been damaged before filming on a tour.

      It's been suggested that the best way to interpret Star Trek V is to see it as Kirk's dream.  He spent an exhausting day in Yosemite climbing El Cap, he had lots of beans and booze, and then he fell asleep by the campfire.  If everything that happens after that happens only in his dreams, then the movie makes a lot more sense.

      It's like Rocky V...it never really happened.

      (In all seriousness, though, Shatner deserves more credit than he gets.  I don't find many issues with his direction, and the movie does manage to touch upon some big ideas and delivers some powerful moments.  The biggest problems were with the script, and as you say, an unusually fraught production.)
