Take your "Odd Number" Trek theory and shove it up your turboshaft. This movie FUCKS.
For every wrongheaded artistic decision Shatner makes as a writer/director, there is often a brilliant one—or at the very least an interesting one—waiting around the corner. Some examples:
- The Yosemite bookend sequences.
- The shot of Captain Kirk staring down what might very well be the cosmic epicenter of all creation while the camera slowly pans down to a plaque bolted to a wooden naval steering wheel that reads “To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before.”
