Trekmovie.com has added a new review for Gene Kozicki and Jeff Bond‘s “Star Trek: The Motion Picture – Inside the Art and Visual Effects”:
December 7, 1979. A release date that will live in infamy. That firm, studio-mandated deadline put extra pressure on a production that began as a revamped TV series and ballooned into what was, at the time, the most expensive movie ever made. And when the original visual effects team got fired ten months before that date, with almost no usable footage shot, well, Star Trek: The Motion Picture needed a miracle worker to help it reach theaters in time.
