Create-A-Caption: Star Trek: The Motion Picture

Released 40 years ago, Star Trek: The Motion Picture is a rousing, contemplative feature that is the perfect big screen debut for the Starship Enterprise crew (despite what any misguided critics may have you believe). Director/Hollywood legend Robert Wise gives every frame of the film a sense of wonder that was missing from every subsequent Star Trek movie. More 2001: A Space Odyssey than Star Wars, this is a film that truly suggests that “the human adventure is just beginning,” and as such is perfectly in line with Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry‘s vision of a better future.

We are celebrating the 40th anniversary of this classic sci-fi flick with this week’s Create-A-Caption. We’ve taken a still from the film and given it a comedic comment. Set phasers for fun and do the same in the comments!
