Star Trek Origins: Star Trek III.
In this episode of Standard Orbit, we start a new series of discussions focusing on the origins of key concepts and events that influenced the franchise for years to come. This week, Star Trek III: The Search For Spock!
While being one of the more divisive entries in the film franchise, Star Trek III was our introduction to a great many things that went on to form a rich foundation for Star Trek's future series and movies. The Bird-of-Prey, the Excelsior, the depth of Vulcan religion and mind melds, the idea of honor for the Klingons, Earth Space Dock and even Transwarp drive. We discuss them all, and also a couple of things that didn't stick from The Search For Spock.
