Trek Geeks #126: The Motion Picture


December, 1979.

Dan and Bill were both ten years old and went to see the first big screen adventure of the Starship Enterprise and her crew. It was a movie that made a lasting impression on them and, this week, they’ll talk about it on Trek Geeks!

Star Trek: The Motion Picture ushered in a brand new era and second life for Star Trek. It’s a movie that has generated a lot of discussion, and they’ll talk about their perceptions of this film then and now.

Plus, STLV news, Discovery novel and ship news, and find out why Bill now calls Dan “Maestro” this week on Your Independent Star Trek Podcast!


We can’t thank FIVE YEAR MISSION enough. We are truly grateful to them for allowing us to use their music for every episode of Trek Geeks. You really should check them out–they’re writing and recording one original song for each episode of the classic Star Trek series from the 1960’s.
