“Damn it, Bones, you’re a doctor. You know that pain and guilt can’t be taken away with a wave of a magic wand. They’re the things we carry with us, the things that make us who we are. If we lose them, we lose ourselves. I don’t want my pain taken away! I need my pain!,” Kirk said.
Science Fiction hasn’t changed with this movie. There is still a cerebral feel to this film. Its the kind of speculative fiction that we get currently. In recent fiction, more and more authors are using fiction that makes you think.
Here is the basic plot…A renegade Vulcan makes Kirk (William Shatner), Spock (Leonard Nimoy), McCoy (DeForest Kelley) and the Enterprise go to a planet at the center of the galaxy.
Here is where everything breaks down. According to many fans, Star Trek V has been considered the worst Star Trek movie ever made. I beg to differ on that notion. It has a lot of heart and comedy, it also has some very strange happenings within the minds of the main characters.
The score was composed by Jerry Goldsmith and the movie was directed by William Shatner himself.
You can find the soundtrack on Amazon.
You can also find the score on ITunes.
