British character actor David Warner as an ambassador of some sort. Uhura singing. Something about God and a laughing Vulcan. And that's it, other than recalling I loved the movie as only a Star Trek-struck kid can. This time, I came prepared to set aside my childish ways and accept that this movie sucks. I was ready to tell you to avoid it. Go watch something else. Cue up " Wrath of Khan " or " Undiscovered Country.
I rewatched it and loved it all over again. The plot is sparked by Spock's Vulcan half-brother Sybok, a zealot who believes God and Eden lie at the center of the galaxy beyond an unbreakable energy field called The Great Barrier. He hijacks the Enterprise and takes it through to a strange planet inside. Sybok, Spock, Kirk and McCoy meet a powerful entity, but it's a malevolent force seeking to escape its prison. Sybok sacrifices himself and a Klingon ship unexpectedly comes to the rescue to deliver our heroes safely to the end of the film. I can understand why some people spit on this movie.
The special effects are dated. William Shatner, who directed the movie, blamed the effects woes on the budget, telling Entertainment Weekly recently, "I wanted to give [the audience] earth-breaking granite monsters spewing rocks and fire. Instead, I had a few pebbles in my hand that I threw at the camera. On the other hand, the sets and costumes are gorgeously rendered.
That's sci-fi gold right there. Every original Enterprise crew member gets a loving nod in "The Final Frontier.
Uhura strips down and becomes a siren, singing a haunting melody against the backdrop of an alien moon. Scotty engineers a daring jailbreak.
Sulu showcases his flying skills with a harrowing shuttlecraft landing. To me, "Final Frontier" plays out like an elongated episode of the original series.
