mark12A: I liked STTMP. I thought the plot was smart, plausible and logical. A real engineer's version of Trek. Especially the Director's Cut. The pajama uniforms were bland, but completely logical considering the ship environment was well controlled.


People don't give that movie nearly enough credit. It better exemplifies what Star Trek was really supposed to be about: exploring the universe, than any of the other films. Not every story needs a Khan-like villain (something I wish the writers of every Trek movie since 1996 would figure out).

diaphoresis: never heard of him. hopefully he did some good for humanity.


He played a role not only in the Apollo program, but also the International Space Station. I'd say adding his contribution to doing amazing things like putting humans on the moon and bringing together cold war rivals did some good for humanity.
