Vintage Behind The Scenes Look At Making The Original Star Trek Movie

Take a look at how they went about making the epic Star Trek: The Motion Picture in the 70's!

SlashFilm had this interesting behind the scenes documentary on the making of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. It's amazing to me how they went about making an epic space movie way back in the 70's that still stands up today.

This movie is over 30 years old and has none of today's computerized special effects and it's still visually stunning to see.

Star Trek: The Motion Picture was released in 1979. It was directed by Robert Wise and starred....

William Shatner as Admiral James T. Kirk

Leonard Nimoy as Mr. Spock

DeForest Kelley as Dr. Leonard 'Bones' McCoy

James Doohan as Cmdr. Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott

George Takei as Lt. Cmdr. Hikaru Sulu

Walter Koenig as Lt. Pavel Chekov

Nichelle Nichols as Lt. Cmdr. Uhura..... all the original crew from the series.

Take a look and let me know what you think.
