UPDATE: Mission Log Releases Never Before Seen Documents and Photos from Star Trek: The Motion Picture
To go along with today’s episode on Star Trek: The Motion Picture, the guys over at Mission Log Podcast have released some supposedly never before seen photos and documents pertaining to the 1979 film. The first is a set of photos, mostly candid behind-the-scenes type shots, of cast and crew from the shooting. The second item is a memo, perhaps written by Leonard Nimoy, detailing the character of Spock in preparation for the film. It builds character background by telling the story of what Spock was doing on Vulcan for all those years, and it sounds like it was a pretty intense time for our pointy-eared friend.
“The first year of the process consisted of absolute silence in the absence of other beings. No sound was to be uttered or heard.”
