[To be fair, TMP had far worse problems than Robert Wise's unfamiliarity with Star Trek.
To clarify, I believe had Robert Wise been more familiar, confident and in tune with the source material then Roddenberry's influence would have been diminished resulting in a better film.
I also really, truly hate to say it, but Robert Wise (a brilliant and fantasticly talented person) was not right, in my opinion, for this particular project (ST:TMP). I say that wishing I had one iota of his skill and ability as an artist and visionary.
