Spocklight: A Star Trek Podcast

Episode 50: Star Trek The Motion Picture Director’s Edition in 4K Reaction

October 13, 2022

For the 50th episode of our main mission we return to where it all began for our little podcast - Star Trek: The Motion Picture! This time the Spocklight Crew beam down to The Prince Charles Cinema in London to watch the 4K restoration of Robert Wise’s Directors Edition of the film, giving their thoughts before and after the screening. We discuss the relationships between the core trio of Kirk, Spock and McCoy and why they need each other, speculate how different things could have been if this had been the Enterprise’s final voyage, look forward to another potential Directors edition of a later Trek film, explore the deleted scenes and unbox Paul’s own 5-disc Box Set of the complete Adventure.
