Hello again geeks, today is a good day for me with regards to the Star Trek universe. Today I write the last review of the original six movies. This means I have successfully made it through The Original Series, and I am just as happy to be leaving them behind as I am to be heading towards The Next Generation. Here’s my review of the last of the original six movies, as well as a bonus summary of how I felt about all the movies.
It was a very sad moment for the world when we lost Leonard Nimoy last month, and an even bigger loss to the geek community. Even I, the reluctant Trekkie, was saddened by his loss despite my complaints of not liking the original series that much. He was such an iconic man, and his personal quotes and lifestyle really reflected Spock in a lot of ways as well. So it only seemed appropriate that I continue on my quest to watch all Star Trek related films and shows with the next movie in my line up- Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.
That’s right, I have successfully completed my mission in watching season 2 of Star Trek: The Original Series. I have learned a lot as I have entered the world of 1960’s science fiction, and in particular I appreciate now that we have come a long way. Still, it’s nice to nod my head in recognition of what was the then ground-breaking television series. Today I want to bring you my favorite moment’s, buzzfeed listastic style again. But first I have to point out a couple frustrations I have with the show and see if you Trekkies agree.
