Again I find myself in the minority that thinks TFF isn't as bad as everyone else says. Sure it has problems, but its Star Trek through and through.
I think some people just get off on hating Shatner.
Not at all. Shatner is great, and not just in Star Trek. His two TWILIGHT ZONE episodes are classics as well. And I'm curious to check out his new documentary on fandom.
Hell, I even enjoyed that movie he did in Esperanto!
But TFF just didn't work, and, at this late date, what's the point in trying to "fix" it? We got seven
more movies despite TFF, so no harm done.
It has nothing to do with "hating Shatner."
