Larry “Dr. Trek” Nemecek reminds you: It was not just a movie — it was a statement. And a pop culture revolution: who ever heard of a dead TV series coming back as a big-budget film?

Let’s review not just the oft-battered plot and production, but the saga of “TMP" itself — and how it sits in the Trek landscape today. Join Larry and Star Trek artist John Eaves for a look back at the first time the USS Enterprise NCC-1701 graced the big screen.
