The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day has found the nuclear wessel!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic! Earlier this year I went out to LA to attend the Hero Complex Film Festival and got to watch Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home on the big screen followed by a lengthy Q&A with its director and star Leonard Nimoy. It was a great night, a great Q&A (Read it here) and a refreshing revisit of a movie that is much better than its reputation. Sure, it’s kinda goofy, it winks at the camera, but not nearly as much as you probably remember. The core group is there and working brilliantly together, so it is with great pleasure that I share a picture of Spock directing in the streets of San Francisco! Hope you guys enjoy the pic and make sure click for a bigger version!

If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here. Oh, what the hell? Tomorrow’s pic stays in this universe and reverses a few flicks. -Quint Follow Me On Twitter

    Great movie

    by GeneralKael

    It's hard to believe they went from this to Star Trek V. I remember seeing this movie and thinking "Wow, everything is as it should be - Spock is really back, the Enterprise is back, Kirk is a Captain again, the sky's the limit! - the next movie should be awesome!". Instead we got Star Trek V. How the hell do you screw this up? Not only was the script bad, there were special effects shots where I could swear I was able to see the string. One particular shot of a shuttlecraft I clearly remember - it looked like someone was literally dragging a model of a shuttlecraft across the surface of a really big poster of space. It was as if someone at Paramount decided that people would watch anything if it was called Star Trek. I was at a Star Trek symphony earlier this year and as a gag, for the Final Frontier music they played one note and then moved on to Star Trek VI(which is somewhat unfair to Jerry Goldsmith, since his music was the only good thing about the movie). Regarding the Voyage Home and this photo, I do remember one newspaper report at the time about filming Star Trek IV in San Francisco - the cast was all dressed up in their outfits and Spock in his, and they were walking around and the locals didn't even notice. When I was in High School I had to do a report on endangered species and use clippings from newspapers and I was able to use a clipping about how Star Trek IV was promoting Whale Conservation.

    IV is my least favorite TREK film

    by BSGDAN

    Except, possibly, for "Insurrection". "The Voyage Home" is vastly overrated, but it's success did lead to TNG, so it isn't all bad.

    Jerry Goldsmith

    by GeneralKael

    I agree his best stuff is First Contact - I remember reading somewhere that Final Frontier was kind of like his warm up for First Contact(I don't remember the source for this) but First Contact is an amazing score.

  • Nov. 23, 2010, 11:14 p.m. CST

    I think V was the worst trek film

    by GeneralKael

    And I don't think they ever really got back on track for the original cast after that. VI is not bad, but could have been much better. It just seemed like Paramount wasn't really behind it and they were trying to save a buck. Also, turning Saavik into Valaris was just stupid. It would have been such a better movie if it was Saavik and would have created a genuine shock for the audience(and made sense - she's pissed about Klingon's killing David). Also, having Spock with ANOTHER young, female protege just kinda made it look like he's a dirty old man who's abusing his rank. However my biggest complaint about all the movies is that Kirk should have died in a big space battle, going out saving the Federation - NOT from falling off of scaffolding.

    KaelOmont they wanted to have Saavik back

    by KilliK

    for the same reason you wrote about.but Kirstie wasnt interested for the role because she was already a star in that Cheers show,so they replaced her character with the Valaris since they had to replace the actress.<br /> <p>but nowadays that wouldnt have been a problem,they could replace Kirstie with another actress for the same character and pretend that nothing didnt happen.<br /> <p>Meyer explained that problem in his dvd commentary of the film.

    the reason that ST5 happened was because Shatner

    by KilliK

    in order to play in ST4,he had forced the studio to make a new ST film which he would write and direct by himself.i think he got a bit jealous of Nimoy's creativity involvement in the previous films.heh.

    by sardonia

    "Remember where we parked!"...

    by Master Bruce

    ST IV is, after Khan, the best film in the Classic Trek series imho. And for those saying it's too campy or derivative of the original series, I think it's tone is similar to episodes like "The Trouble with Tribbles" or "A Piece of the Action", and therefore is "proper Trek".

    by Rebel Scumb

    I like the horner ones, and I love the ST6 score, that was the first cd I ever bought. I agree that star trek 5 is good in spots but poorly executed in others. I do love the scene where Sybock makes spock/mccoy confront their pain, and how theatrical that scene is, and then shatner refusing. The 'what does god need of a starship' is also great. And I really like the camping stuff and the intro with the ominious rider on the prison planet, then the reveal he's a vulcan. Hands down though, the worst ST movie is NEMESIS, I'm confounded how anyone could think otherwise.

    I have mixed feelings about this movie (Star Trek 4)

    by AsimovLives

    Parts of it i like quiete a lot. Some of the jokes are really very funny. But overall i feel disastisfaction withthe movie. and while i side with the movie's enviromentalism message, it's handled with such a hammer to the head fashion that it causes me the reverse effect it wants to make. This is the kind of hammered down enviromentalism message stuff that helped put me out of enviromentalism. I'm not pro-pollution pro-reckless industrialism pro-corporation at all, but the usuala way that the enviromentalists have spread their message, including movies, made me coutner-react to them. It also doesn't help that enviromentalism is also pretty dogmatic in nature, a form of extreme conservatism disguised as progressive and liberal, which isn't.<br><br>The movie is nice, but doesn't satisfy me all that much. It's still thousands of times better then the latest Jar Jar Abrams abortion, though, but then again, what isn't?<br><br>And for all the flaws i might find in ST4, at least the movie didn't dumbed down in wher eit matters. I will always praise to the heavens the penultimum scene at the court marcial trial where Kirk gets the just punishment for his mutinous actions in the previous movie, resulting is a great demotion from admiral to captain. Which just served him quite well, because the man was made to be an acting captain of a ship, not a top brass desk jockey. It's a clever way the movie mannaged to both be convincing and real-life like while at the same time finding a reason to put Kirk back at the captain chair. It's cleaver and elegant storytelling. Something that Jar Jar Abrams, Bob Assclown #1 Orci and Alex Assclown #2 Kurtzman could learn something from, if they ever manange to switch off from dumb mode.

    by AsimovLives

    I agre with you that most of the problems from ST5 is mostly to do with the execution and not the script or acting. Also the fact that Shatner was a first time director with very little experience (or talent) for directing, and that he movie's budget was cut almost in half right before shotting start didn't helped much. Shatner and Co had to do with very little resourses, far less then any other previous Star Trek movie had. Most notably is shown in the special effects, which even for 1980s low budget movie standards was quite lacking. but the mvoie has good things. The script has a theme and soemthing to say and does it's best to make it come across with some degree of intelligence and relevance. And the comradery from the Enterprise crew is quite very well handled, specially concerning the Holy Troika of Kirk-Spock-Bones. It might evne be the old Trek movie in which their elationships are more closely portaited to the spirit and presentation found in the TOS show. ST5 could had been a great St movie, probalby the second best, where it not for the problems i aforementioned. and althoughthe movie quite disapointed me, i still can't help feel some sympathy to it, to the point sometimes i find myself defending it against it's harsher critics.<br><br>And you said something i fully agree with: ST5 and TMP are indeed the ST movies that most closely are into the spirit of the TOS show.

    is really just a dumb thing to say when we all know the film had some great moments in it and a few interesting ideas. By ripping on Nu Trek and saying it is shit makes you look really un-educated. You lose all credibility as a sci-fi film critic.

    The Voyage Home is Enjoyable

    by slave to the one

    When the movies came out on Blue Ray, I decided to revisit my favorites (2,3,4 & 6) TVH by far feels the most dated with the 80's setting and campiness but it's still a fun movie to watch. Always loved the scene where Spock puts the grip on the punk rocker in the bus!

    I thinkm it's hilalrious that you defent the most retard movie made in the 200s that was not directed by Michael Bay by defending it as saying that hose who disliek it are dumb. Do you even know what dumb is? Jar Jar Abrams's BREWERY TREK is a retard stupid bad movie. and it takes complete obtuseness and deliberate blidnness to fail to see where the fucking Narada ship got it's inspiration from. Yes, the Narada IS a rip off of the Death Star. The whole movie is a rip off of Star Wars, to begin with. In what in the Narada ship that is gargantual in size, can destroy any other ships without much trouble, can destroy whole planets with ease and then gets destroyed by a surgical strke from a small ship piloted by one of the heroes of the movie doesn't look like you as taken directly from Star Wars? In what of those elements you can tell is not suspiciously similiar to Star Wars?<br><br>Word of advise: if you are going to criticise a detractor of the Jar Jar Abrams' BREWERY TREK movie, the last thing you should ever use is a claim dumbness about them and a claim of intelligence from eithe rthe mvoie and it's fans. It makes you look like a retard, like the movie is. Consider this a friendly advise. If you are oign tod efend the fucking movie, just say you love to see shit blowing up and you hate being distracted by good well writen inteligent plot and dialogue and competent filmmaking. That at least is honest.

    Mo love for ASTAR TREK: THE MOTION PCITURE? For shame. I think all the geeks who dislike ST:TMP have drunk the Kool-Aid. The movie is far, far better then the geek dogma makes it out to be.

    When I was a young'n, I adored The Voyage Home.

    by Royston Lodge

    As I got older, I saw how cheesy it was.<p> But at the time, I loved the shit out of it.<p> Whales! Time travel! Jokes about profanity!<p> What wasn't to love, right?<p> It's a kids movie, really.<p> Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    "It's a kids movie, really"<br><br>Right. Which might explain it's popularity. But i can't outright dislike the movie, because it still has very good stuff in it that's absurd to ignore. but let me just say this about the movie: i never bough the DVD. I did for the TOS show, and the first, second, third and sixth movie. Should be telling.

    "Mo love for ASTAR TREK: THE MOTION PCITURE" = No love for STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE".<br><br>I do feel embaraced for the typos. My excuse? I'm portuguese and i was writing in a hurry. Well, not so much an excuse as an explanation.

    "... gargantual in size, can destroy any other ships without much trouble, can destroy whole planets with ease and then gets destroyed by a surgical strke from a small ship piloted by one of the heroes of the movie..." Wow. I mean oh my god. The Narada ripped off the DEATHSTAR?! You can't be serious, right? Um. Does THE DOOMSDAY MACHINE RING A BELL? I could list a whole mess of other "giant unstoppable" plot device examples but to be honest I don't feel like it right now. As for the insults against me regarding what I opine in the field of sci-fi film compared to any "logic" based statement about Trek from you, you're a one-legged contestant in an ass kicking contest.

    Astronut save it.the Narad is a Death Star rip-off.

    LOL how ignorant. So going by that I guess since Trek had phasers then Star Wars (and 1,000 other sci-fi concepts) copied with laser guns. LOL to infinity, brainiacs.

    I wouldn't say the 80's setting makes the movie dated, as that's the time period it's set in. It's supposed to have an 80's feel to it, just like a WWII period piece should have a 40's feel to it. But I do agree with you on the campiness of STIV.
