the grey costumes give a much more sombre and serious edge tho, don't you think?

It's much less militaristic than the later movie costumes. And also much less like engineering overalls than the later TV ones.

The updated cloud effects are fantastic, they just map out the skeleton of what used to be there.

The movie is much more powerful in respect of that effects update too, you can join in with the awe and bewilderment of the crew.

The first look of the outer core - that really is some visionary design.

the flypast over the top ( from 5000 meteres! ) is amazing, so organic and industrialised, a perfect mix considering what lies at the centre.

This is where Goldsmith's score really starts to make you tingle, the overbearing deep pulses............................................ .......OH SHIT - ENERGY BEAM!!!

I was never too sure what the Vger ship was supposed to look like before the updated effects were put in. The crew mention it, you see a little graphic near the end..otherwise it was slightly misty all the time.

This gives it that much more defintion, but leaves intact the sense of mystery.

Don't mess with it spock - it's going for the hot chick!

"The film's soundtrack provided a popular debut for the Blaster Beam, an electronic instrument about 10 feet long, stringed, and played with an artillery shell. Jerry Goldsmith used it to create the eerie signature V'ger sound."

However, Illia is back - thus i am unable to pause - now that's a fucking costume. if skirts are that short in the future, I'm going to invest in cryogenics

Decker, so cool, calm and collected - put a mini skirt in front of him and he's all jelly. So weak, so typical.

Ah the classic electro-ball effect

Don't touch it Spock! Too late, not much logic there.

dude, if i was spock, and i had to go out into space by myself in that suit, i would totally be filling that suit up with my own feces in a flash!

i also believe that sulu's blouse opens one button lower than everyone elses on the bridge.

The flashes of Vger's memory banks during the mind meld show you what the probe really is.

And so Spock learns from Vger that his failure at Kolinir was for a reason...that he must embrace both logic and his humanity.

.....And that he has guy love for Kirk.

i cant get enough of sulu.

you know, i think (thanks in large part to howard stern) that sulu is starting to get his revenge on shatner. i went to see donnie darko on saturday night, as part of my local midnight series. this saturday, they are showing star trek 4. they showed the trailer for ST4 before donnie darko, and you know what? the first time sulu came up on screen, the whole audience started cheering. i couldnt fucking believe it. all of that bile, and those sour grapes in takei's autobiography. i thought it pointless, as the heyday of this cast had come and gone. but now george takei, and the sulu character have taken on a whole new meaning for a whole generation of people, and i think shatner is beginning to see his own comeuppance. seriously, shatner is a larger than life personality. but i have never heard a theater blow up for ANYONE involved with star trek like they did for sulu.

oh my!

McCoy: "jim, what kind of strategy is this?!"

man, i would slap the shit out of dr. mccoy for second guessing me in front of my crew, on my own bridge like that.

yeah, why dont you get your curmudgeonly ass back to sickbay, and a nice tall mint julep, where it belongs, dr. shithead?

Spock needs to honk on a monster joint & get his shit evolved. And blow Kirk and get it over with, fer chrissakes......

heh,

at the end of this film, they should have had a funeral for scotty's tunic, because thats the last time he is ever going to fit into it.
