Default 'Star Trek V: The Final Frontier' - High-Def Digest Review

In order to do them all justice, High-Def Digest is reviewing each film in the 'Star Trek: Original Motion Picture Collection' individually. We'll get into the nitty gritty of each movie as we cover each title, but overall, the complete set is an easy recommendation.

Josh can see light at the end of the tunnel. He's turned his attention to the penultimate 'Star Trek' feature, 'Star Trek V: The Final Frontier.' He says this installment is without a doubt the weakest in the series, but still possesses plenty of positive elements. Video is problematic, audio is above average, and there are scads of supplements to keep hardcore fans engaged.

Full review here:

I actually kind of like this movie. It's a mess story wise, and the effects are noticably worst, but I still find it enjoyable, mostly because of the emphasized character interactions in it. I certainly like it better than TMP, and most of the TNG movies.

Lol, I will say they have aged rather noticably by this movie, considering, timeline-wise, this is only a few months after Wrath of Khan

Default The Enterprise NCC-1701-A wasn't new.

Alright, time to geek out:

From the review: "This new Enterprise-A was apparently built overnight, and still has some kinks to be worked out."

Actually, according to Mr. Scott's guide to the Enterprise, the Enterprise-A was the re-christened Enterprise class USS Ti-Ho NCC-1798.

There is no Enterprise class. It's Constitution.

Yeah, there were some discrepancies, and some references are made to "Enterprise class", but you're correct, it's generally agreed that it's Constitution class.

Well I just figured its safe to assume that Starfleet had a few Constitution Class cruisers under construction and just decided to slap the name Enterprise on one of the newly constructed ones.

Nevertheless I still like this movie. As bad as it is there are some real good character moments, with great Kirk/Spock/McCoy banter. That's sort of what makes this movie frustrating is that its not all bad, it has some real good parts to it that as Josh said, deserves to be in a better movie.

Be interesting to see if the new movies revisit the scene when McCoy pulls the plug on his dad.

It was mentioned in another Star Trek review thread (believe it was IV) that the Enterprise that 'magically was made overnight' was in fact another ship that was simply 'rechristened' Enterprise because of what happened to the original ship in III. This has been written in official cannon books, but is not acknowledged by Josh for whatever reason.
