    I have a very complicated relationship with Star Trek: The Motion Picture and my most recent viewing of the film (the 4k 2022 Director's Edition in theaters via fathom events) hasn't made it less complicated.

    This was a film I initially hated. Some of that hate was deserved. Some of it came from being a person who came to Star Trek via the next generation in the middle of the time when fandom was split down the middle between the…

    It's been a long time since I've watched a documentary so negligent in the handling of its subject matter to the point where it borderline fetishizes mental illness for entertainment.

    Yes, it does eventually get to the counterfactuals of the philosophical thought experiment it explores but it does so only after an hour of watching vtubers armchair philosophize in a way that feels like listening to a friend in college after they've been hitting a bong too frequently.
