Star Trek V: The Final Frontier is the latest entry into the
Star Trek film vault series, as The Glenn Butler Podcast Hour
Spectacular investigates one of the most derided entries in the
franchise. Glenn & Scott welcome special guest Erik Amundsen for an
in-depth discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of Star Trek V,
the character dynamics, William Shatner’s turn in the director’s chair,
how the film also reflects Shatner’s interests as an artist, the film’s
place in the development of the Star Trek franchise, the meaning of
Uhura’s nude fan dance, Doctor McCoy’s stance on euthanasia, and whether
The Final Frontier deserves the reputation it’s accrued. The
three also consider two very important questions: what does God need
with a starship, and why is Captain Kirk climbing a mountain?
We need our pain, but sometimes the words aren’t important, what’s important is that you have a good time singing.
