Re: Stonehenge in Star Trek V: TFF

I just think they thought having a rock temple suddenly spring out of the ground all around you looked suitably impressive and like something a badass ancient godlike being would do, and it could be accomplished on a relatively tight budget with minimal effects on a sound stage. While it likely may have been inspired by the look of Stonehenge from a production standpoint, in-universe I don't think they were trying to imply any direct connection between the two.

Of course, they also put Nazca lines on Mt. Seleya on Vulcan, so who knows?
