Movie Review: Why Star Trek V: The Final Frontier is the greatest Star Trek movie of all time

by Brandon

Trekkies often claim Star Trek V is the worst Star Trek movie.

Well, they’re wrong.

Yeah, goth Klingons can be annoying. I get that.

I also understand that Sybok’s just a Romulan. I mean, really. He’s a passionate Vulcan. That’s a Romulan in my book. I don’t know why that bald dude was all, “You’re a Vulcan!” Why would he assume that? He was looking at a passionate pointy-eared guy. Why didn’t Baldy assume he was a Romulan?

Yes, it’s odd that instead of ambushing their enemies, Kirk’s team apparently decided it would be a better idea to make poor Uhura dance naked in the desert.

And I totally get that “God” wasn’t exactly up to Khan levels as far as being a villain is concerned (although, you gotta admit, questioning God was totally a “Kirk moment”).

I understand the complaints and they’re all valid complaints… but I stand by my assertion that Star Trek V is the greatest thing to ever happen to Star Trek.

Why?

Because it gave us this video:

I really don’t think anything else needs to be said.

I love Shatner, he is so entertaining. I am sure Steve has recommended this movie to you and you may have already seen it, but watch “Free Enterprise” if you have not already done so. And if you have, watch it again.
