Are They Really That Bad? - Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
It's the 40th anniversary of Star Trek's first movie - and there are mixed feelings. Franchise fans are glad that TMP led to Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, eventually creating many movies and television series. However, TMP is also the infamous "Motionless Picture." But, is it really that bad? The trio rewatch this 1979 feature film and look at the characters of Captain Decker, potential Badmiral Kirk, a civilian Spock who seems similar to his Star Trek: Discovery counterpart, and everyone's favorite Disco Bones. Do the special effects really take away from the story? Is there an actual story to tell that can fill a movie? And does the enjoyment of the movie depend on how you watch it? Let us know your opinion of TMP and whether it's really that bad.

There are many heroes in Star Trek, as well as many villains. Then there are those characters who are a bit more grey, or maybe just evil, but who we love to watch.

The Star Trek television franchise has evolved its storytelling format over several decades. In many ways, one can watch episodes of The Original Series in almost any order whilst doing the same with Discovery would cause mass confusion. But what about those truly stand alone episodes? The ones that are either random farces, a fantasy experiment, or just a moment for one or two characters to go on a singular adventure? The trio look at those episodes in the Trek franchise and ask, if serialization is now the way to tell stories, will we miss those episodes as seasons get shorter and stories get tighter?
