Star Trek: The Motion Picture Movie Summary
Film. The final frontier. These are scenes of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Its mission: to placate fanboys and shut Gene Roddenberry the hell up. The movie starts with a giant energy cloud in space destroying everything in its path. Three Klingon Birds of Prey investigate. The cloud blows up two, and the third tries to retreat before they too meet the same fate. Wait, retreat? What the hell kind of Klingons are we dealing with? Qapla, indeed.Meanwhile in Sector 001, the Enterprise is undergoing a major refit.
For years of dedicate service, banging numerous Orion slave girls, Captain Kirk is now admiral. He throws a major hissy fit so he can regain command of the Enterprise to investigate the space cloud coming straight for Earth. Captain Decker, who oversaw the refit and was to take command, gets his space panties in a bunch and doesn’t take the news too well. Hey, at least he still has his relationship with Illia… who is bald… and took a celibacy vow. Ok, I can see why this frustrates Decker.
Kirk addresses the crew in the most motivational way he can: showing the cloud destroying the Klingon ships. You can tell Kirk suppressed doing the jig when he saw the Klingons go the way of his son… wait… that happens later in the timeline. Nevermind. Any who, Kirk says the cloud is heading straight for Earth and they, as per standard Starfleet protocols, is the only ship that can intercept the cloud in time.read full summary
