    Don't be put off by the packaging; it's not that bad

    Was this the best film? No. Was it William Shatner's fault? No. Budget constraints meant that most of the scenes were not shot anything like the way he conceived them. Bran Ferren's rotten special effects which not only looked inferior to the ILM effects which went before, but didn't even look right, didn't help either. But what was there was the character interaction and storylining prevalent in the original series which goes a long way towards saving it. The combination of a strong story and characterisation but played out in a weak low budget setting actually makes this film truer to the original series than any of the others. Unfortunately, that was mid 1960's TV, this was late 1980's cinema, and the forgiveness readily granted to the original series couldn't be applied to Star Trek V. Don't let the packaging put you off; this ain't a bad film if you give it a chance and sit down and watch it - still way better than TMP or Generations.

    There are problems with this picture as well as good points,so it's no surprise that it's on the bottom of the list of the six STAR TREK films.There was a good idea here in searching for an alien that claims to be creator of the universe,but it was not given the proper attention.The problems are many,but two come to mind right away--THERE IS NO DECK 78 ON A 23 DECK STARSHIP,AND THIS CREW ALREADY WENT TO THE SO-CALLED 'GREAT BARRIER' AT THE CENTER OF THE GALAXY IN THE ST ANIMATED SERIES IN THE 1970's.On the good side of the picture we see the relationship between the characters tested and the trouble with getting a new starship going.True,this is NOT STAR TREK AT ITS BEST,but it is a good tape to have because it shows how much better the other ones are.When you take the bad points away,this film is good since you know that everyone tried.
