Re: Star Trek V - The Dream Theory

How about a compromise explanation? The film is a dream in which the dreamer relived events that actually happened, but in a distorted way, interpolating fantasy images like the gravity boots, the "center of the galaxy" being 20 minutes away, the 78 decks, being harmlessly knocked down by a photon torpedo, etc. Sort of a variation of the Literary Agent Hypothesis, that the story you're seeing is a fictionalized and embellished account of an actual event.
