It's full of flaws but a lot of fun. I honestly think it's the closest film to an episode of classic Trek.
Have to disagree, I think that honour goes to The Search for Spock

Something isn't right....

The math isn't adding up. According to my memory, I went to see Star Trek V after getting a meal at a friends' restaurant. It was on my birthday. Problem is, twenty-five years ago, I'd have been 26, but I would have to have been 30. I remember having one of those 'I'm a loser, I'm going to a Star Trek movie by myself on my 30th birthday' moments.

I think the time-line got altered somewhere along the way.
TFF premiered in the US on June 9, 1989. 25 Years ago.

It's been really nice to hear so many positive comments about STV

It still does have some redeeming features. I may put it at the bottom of the movie list but as a fan I still enjoy it from time to time

I see its flaws, I understand the perfectly legitimate criticisms - and yet - I still love it. It's tremendous fun, and has a real sense of energy.
Agreed. And I wish I was still the 19 year old I was when that movie first came out.

Then I'D have some energy.......

Re: its Star Trek Vs 25th anniversary!

I remember seeing this twice on opening day; once with my friends in the first showing, and then later on that evening with my girlfriend.
The first showing had lots of hardcore fans, a few were dressed up in costume, and the "This is Captain Chekov" line got a big applause.
The evening show was much more laid back.

The movie certainly has it's flaws, but it's still fun. It also has my favorite bridge.

It wasn't released until October '89 here in the UK, and I'd just turned 21 myself! Oh to be young again...

I remember being disappointed at the space effects and overall cheap look the cinematography(?) gave this movie, despite the ambitious exterior scenes.

What I really like is the klingons, Klaa sells himself as a very credible Kruge Junior -- and the woman has vonderful muscles too.

Re: its Star Trek Vs 25th anniversary!

Was too young to go to the premiere. I saw all six films on VHS in 93, when I was craving for anything sci-fi after watching the STAR WARS TRILOGY. Even at that young age, I knew TFF was an odd one. It wasn't clicking like the others. It's not until revisiting the films on DVDs that I realized what a step down it was from everything that came before. Boy oh boy.

But you know what? It's got a fantastic score. Goldsmith seemed to have a knack for making great scores for some of the biggest turkeys in film (INCHON, SUPERGIRL, LEGEND), and this is no exception. It's my second favorite Trek score behind TMP. Just a pity it's not associated with a better film.

Re: its Star Trek Vs 25th anniversary!

Having just gotten back from a camping trip in Yosemite myself this weekend (entirely a coincidence; my girlfriend planned the trip months ago), I re-watched Star Trek V last night and found that desite its many flaws, it still ends up being one of my favorites. It's funny, quotable, has decent action, characterization and a phenomenal score by Jerry Goldsmith but it's also a fun movie. There's cinematic fun to be had with the characters and Shatner milked it for all it was worth. The denouement might be anticlimactic and something of a letdown, but it's far from being actually bad and certainly not the worst of the 12 films in the series.

I would second Lokai of Cheron's recommendation to get the Expanded Edition, (and on which I get a special thanks!). The LaLaLand Records Limited Edition is out of print, but there are still copies for sale I believe of the Intrada re-release/second edition.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go listen to "The Mountain."

Re: its Star Trek Vs 25th anniversary!

Sorry. I've had occasion to rewatch the movie recently--strictly for research purposes. And, trust me, it hasn't improved with age. Still my least-favorite Trek movie.

But 25 years . . . wow. As I recall, this was the first Trek movie I saw in NYC, after moving east from Seattle. I remember watching it with John Ordover, who would later hire me to write my first Trek novel.

I know how you feel. I sometimes have vivid memories of watching a tv show in a specific place where I used to live, only to find out that the show wasn't on until much later.

Getting old sucks.

Mine too. I'm still disapointed they didn't reuse that bridge for TUC.
