Trivia

  • Just before the Epsilon IX station is destroyed by V'Ger, Commander Branch (David Gautreaux) mentions that the size of the V'Ger cloud is "My God, over 82 AUs in diameter." For comparative purposes, the distance between Earth and the Sun is 1 AU (short for "Astronomical Unit") and the distance between the Sun and Pluto ranges between 30-40 AUs, which would mean the V'Ger cloud could theoretically encompass the entire Solar System! In the Director's Cut, the line is altered by skillful sound editing, making the size of the cloud only "over 2 AU's in diameter" - Wise (wisely) decided 82 AUs was just too much. 1 AU has an equivalent to 150 million kilometers or 93 million miles. (In the Australian DVD, there is still a reference to 82 AUs in the film, but to only 2 AUs in 'Starfleet Academy SciSec Brief 001: Mystery behind V'Ger', a featurette in the 'Extras'.)

Metacritic

75

Star Trek: The Motion Picture is probably about as good as we could have expected. It lacks the dazzling brilliance and originality of 2001 (which was an extraordinary one-of-a-kind film). But on its own terms it's a very well-made piece of work, with an interesting premise.
