    I've always thought Star Trek: The Motion Picture was an incredibly redundant and crappy name. And with all of today's Star Trek Into Darkness naming hype, I'm sure we can do a better job renaming Trek's first big-screen adventure.

    So lets come up with better names for TMP!

    Star Trek (1979)
    Star Trek: The Vejur Encounter
    Star Trek: In Thy Image (the name of the Phase II pilot that became TMP)

    ....?

    I've always thought of it as In Thy Image. Heck, I independently had the idea that it should be called something like In Your Image even before I discovered that Foster's original script was actually called almost exactly the same thing!

    Of course, for years it's been known to fans as Star Trek: Where Nomad Has Gone Before.

    I had that idea earlier but shied away from posting. I saved it though, in case I got my courage up. *pastes from clipboard*

    I liked it. It's prosaic, but also pretty much what the movie is.

    First thing that came to mind. I'm sure I still have the Reeves-Stevens book on Phase II around here somewhere, that was quite interesting to read (especially the scripts, such as "In Thy Image", that came with it).

    Beyond that (and The Human Adventures) uh...

    Beyond the Unknown? The Visitor?

    It would have just been STAR TREK except they worried that people wouldn't realize it was a movie and not just the TV show. The title was the right one for the time. The proposed subtitles aren't improving it, even if some are amusing. :)

    It's probably worth noting that the first Christopher Reeve "Superman" movie, which came out around the same time, went the same route: Superman: The Motion Picture.

    It makes it sound like more of an event, than just a movie based on old tv show or comic book.
