Re: Revisiting the films...

Part of the problem, of course, is trying to maintain a sense of urgency in the face of vast cosmic distances. Imagine if Star Trek movies went like this:

"Captain! We've received an emergency distress signal from Gamma Sigma III!"

"Warp factor eight, Mr. Sulu!"

"Aye-aye, sir!"

(32.86 hours later).

"Are we there yet?"

(93.2 hours later.)

"Are we there yet?"

(103.05 hours later.)

"Okay, I going to go take a nap. Wake we when we get there."
