Ah, darn, I guess we can't watch Star Trek VI
anymore now that the Creator hath spoken. Actually, I suppose we are limited to only the Roddenberry-penned episodes of TOS, throw in TMP and the first two season of TNG. The rest of Trek will have to go.
Personally, I'd rather watch Star Trek V
over TMP any day, no matter what the Creator told us. Despite its faults, Star Trek V
was at least entertaining at times. I can't really say that for Gene Roddenberry's TMP.
