"As a special edition, the V'Ger model is on the larger side, almost nine inches long and 3.5 inches wide at the flared center. Even so, at life size (up to 82 AU, if you believe the theatrical cut of The Motion Picture!), V'Ger is the largest in-universe ship Eaglemoss has produced a model of to date and the company has done an impressive job modeling and painting features that are dramatically scaled down but still convey a sense of grandiose size.

Based on the physical object buried with V'Ger's cloud layers and the digital model built for the 2001 Director's Edition of the first film the model's surface is textured in a way that follows and emphasizes the filigreed paint pattern, making the tiny details truly seem like immense features on an even more immense vessel…."

I believe the 82 AU figure was V'ger including the nebula around it. The actual ship was significantly smaller.

So, again, no real new ideas by the writers?

I thought this movie was just okay, originally.

The combat and destruction sequences of the Klingon D7s were some of the best, if not THE best I've ever seen. Loved that part of the movie, but alas it was over far too soon. A pity they didn't do something similar between Klingons and/or other races in the ST Universe. A definite missed opportunity.

Loved the clouds, and the dark and foreboding music in the original movie too.

Not sure they'll be able to top that, but the movie overall was really only a 4 or 5 on a scale of 1 – 10.

Where the heck is my UFO movie remake, of the original British TV show?

That one has been missing in action for about a decade, or so now, and would be far better than this story, I suspect.

Personally I think the Director's Cut of TMP is the most SFinal of all the Trek movies, & one of my favorites…

I was too young when I first saw TMP and was expecting something more akin to Star Trek 2 with more action. But now that I'm older I have a better appreciation for TMP. Of all the Star Trek movies, TMP is the most true to hard science fiction.
