Star Trek V: The Final Frontier is a curious film. As someone who has been shotgunning this franchise from the beginning, it’s easy to state that this is a comedy: essentially four original series episodes blended into the chaos of one film that still somehow keeps most of the franchise blueprints in tact. Despite all of the chaos and blended plots, this movie is enjoyable and very watchable.Declassify >
Why did I read Always Look on the Bright Side of Life: A Sortabiography? Why should you? The second question may very well be answered by the first.

Charity is a book unlike any other in the Bernard Samson series. It not only stands on it’s own merits as you could read this without any of the others, but it also concludes the trilogy started by Faith and Hope and concludes the overall series that started with the Game, Set, and Match trilogy.Declassify >
The Voyage Home is the end of what Trek fans before me will know as the Genesis trilogy. Starting with The Wrath of Khan and continuing with The Search for Spock, this is another direct sequel, so there’s a lot of similarities to continue what I enjoyed about The Search for Spock.Declassify >
