Inertial dampeners!

Plus if your console is about to explode in your face you don't want to have to unbuckle first.

Re: Seat belts.

That's a good point. Before Starfleets starts installing seatbelts in its ships, it should probably invest in some better circuitry. Some breakers and well-placed surge protectors would go a long way, also.

Yeah.. it's funny how my laptop is more safe than their super bioneural computers in the future. It won't explode and cheese doesn't cause it to malfunction.

Haha! Strapping down people and making them watch ST5? That's cruel and unusual. Do they do that at Gitmo?

Re: Seat belts.

It's sadly underrated. Or maybe not sadly since it's fan club is very select!

I've got it in my sig line, that quote cracks me up every time. And Talbot!

And Caithlin Dar, talk about hair styles! All that Paradise City stuff is gold. I could go on and on and on..

Re: Seat belts.

Ooh! Brownies

I will confess with repeated watchings over the years, there's a certain morbid entertainment in the suckiness, kinda like Threshold. I did find the whole Paradise City part very realistic. Sure the situation was fubared to no end... so much so I could easily see the UN thinking something like that was a great idea!

General Korrd was my favorite part of the whole thing. He knew he was in the ass end of no where and had the appropriate response ready. Drink like a fish until you pass out. Repeat as needed. I liked the Klingons so much better before post TNG era made them stereotypes.

Still, it doesn't get out of the bottom of my favorite movie lists. Not every movie can be TMP with it's secondary viewing value. I hadn't watched it since the 90's and then watched it on tv one time and realized this stuff is gold! Spock announcing they've achieved full penetration as the enterprise flies into a suggestively shaped hole! All the sexual innuendos were lost on me as a kid!

Re: Seat belts.

I will have to don my sexual innuendo glasses next time I gird up for TMP. I have quite a lot of pairs, I can't imagine why I wasn't wearing them during my other viewings..

Re: Seat belts.

Seatbelts were shown once in TO-MovieSeries, The Wrath of Khan, to be precise. Recall how the armrets folded over their legs during (?) the Kobayashi Maru simulation?

Re: Seat belts.

TFF and TMP are my two favorite Trek films. TMP is a cinematic masterpiece. Yes, the plot is clunky and slow, but the cinematography reached an epic artistic scope that non of the other films could emulate. ST09 was really the first one that came close.

TFF is just so ridiculously absurd, it's hard not to love it. I think a lot of fans cringe and stick their noses up at it because they perceive themselves "above" the humor. The problem is, they're so busy rolling their eyes at the slapstick, that they miss some of the exceptionally well-place wit of the dialog.
