BOOK REVIEW: Return to Tomorrow March 18, 2015by Brian Drew , Filed under: Books,Feature Films (TMP-NEM),History , comments closed
“Each of us, at some time in our lives, turns to someone – a father, a brother, a god – and asks: Why am I here? What was I meant to be?”
This scene from the Director’s Edition of Star Trek: The Motion Picture is meant to convey the existential crisis that V’Ger(and to a lesser extent Spock, Kirk, and Decker) is experiencing. The same can be said about the film itself, which was pulled in many different directions from the beginning and, due to numerous outside forces, struggled to find itself.
That struggle is brought together in vivid detail in Return to Tomorrow, an oral history of the film from author Preston Neal Jones and publisher Creature Features.
