The late Seventies were a depressing time. Economic malaise. Oil embargo. Iran hostage crisis. Star Trek: The Motion Picture will make us all feel better, right? Well, no, not really–it’s a rather somber affair, full of drab colors, violent death, and characters who barely acknowledge one another’s presence. It’s not all bad, though, because it comes to an end. Eventually.
Considering how much time was spent discussing the transporter accident, I can’t believe neither Eric nor Richard mentioned that Janice Rand is the transporter chief! What gives?
Whoa. You just blew my mind!
Always happy to be of service! 🙂
Grace Lee Whitney also appeared in TSFS, but was credited as “Woman in Cafeteria.” That’s her making the face as the battle-damaged Enterprise glides past the windows.
