Star trek final frontier directors cut finished

Hi I have great news for those wanting a directors cut of the final frontier. Gustavo whos in charge of the final frontier directors cut movement has recently posted that the directors cut is finished and Bill Shatner is going to see it. Also I think they are currently talking with CBS. This new version has been remastered with new good special effects and problems have been fixed such as the deck number goof. Also they have added new scenes such as one where a rock monster chases kirk which was originaly going to be in the movie but was cut do to budget issues. If you want more updated on this go to trek web or go to there facebook page titled Petition for a "Star Trek V" Special Edition.

Re: Star trek final frontier directors cut finished

I wonder if they fixed the 'Spock suddenly descending in gravity boots' goof?

You know, explain how he got above them in the turbo-lift shaft, and why he did not simply take them the same route he took which led him away to higher ground away from their pursuers.

I don't see how adding a rock monster would fix any of this film's problems. (Besides, people would probably accuse it of ripping off the Galaxy Quest rock monster. And yes, I know that rock monster was a reference to the one that was supposed to be in ST V, but others wouldn't know that.)

Although I'd appreciate it if they cut out the lines about Sha Ka Ree being at the center of the galaxy.

Less Sybok and more camping scenes would be good, but I suppose that is probably not going to happen.

How is it the Directors Cut if the director of the film didn't work on it?

I felt Sybok was the most effective thing about the movie.

Technically I guess it isn't, but maybe the people who did edit it did so according to Shatner's notes and recommendations -- sort of like how Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut is actually the Michael Thau cut in consultation with Donner.

It'll be the Director's Cut if Shatner signs off on it and says "Yup, that's pretty much what I would've done." It'll be about as much a Director's Cut then as the 1992 version of Blade Runner was (Ridley Scott provided notes/tips, but didn't oversee it himself). Otherwise, it's just a Fanedit. Either way, Paramount won't touch it on sheer principle. Or they'll simply shelve the only copy and only release it on Blu-Ray when Shatner (gulp) is no longer with us.

So, they're going to talk to CBS. After they did all the work. And if CBS says no, then what?

CBS could also take it and run with it without having to pay any of them for the work they did.

That should never be a reason against restoring a scene. It's not Star Trek V's fault that ten years later someone else took that idea and remade it.

The actor himself was fine but I just could not get behind the idea that Spock suddenly had an emotional 1/2 Vulcan brother.

Kinda like the novel 'Enterprise: The First Adventure' where Spock all of a sudden had an emotional cousin. I wonder where they got the idea...

What? Sybok was a full Vulcan. We were told in the film that he was the son of Sarek and a "Vulcan princess." And since we know that Vulcans are betrothed as children, it's reasonable that Sarek had a Vulcan wife before he married Amanda.

And Sybok's rogue philosophy helps explain why Sarek disowned Spock for going into Starfleet, why they went 18 years without speaking as father and son. Maybe Sarek was afraid that Spock was following the same path that Sybok had and would bring similar shame to the family.

Re: Star trek final frontier directors cut finished

I think it was worded badly. It should have been "Vulcan half-brother".
