Searching for Spock.
Star Trek BEYOND is nearly upon us and your refit crew felt that a “logical” follow-up to Temporal Trailer Park 1 & 2 would be to a return to the Original Series movie franchise starting with Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. Why Star Trek III? Well after the Chief's and the Commodore's conversation on Standard Orbit 123: TMP vs. TWOK: The Conversational Kobayashi Maru, the team felt that The Search for Spock would be the “logical” choice to continue covering the Original Series movie universe and to tap into all of the listeners’ nostalgia and emotional connection to those legendary stories.
The Refit Crew reminisces a great deal about how this film was Leonard Nimoy's directorial debut, how Harve Bennett wrote the entire script, discuss major themes of death and darkness in this movie starting with Valkris, through to David Marcus and culminating with the destruction of the Enterprise. Was it the right amount of drama or too much? Ultimately, this movie posited the ultimate question: Is Spock back? Join the Refit Crew, as they not only Search for Spock, but for the deeper meaning behind this wonderful contribution to the Original Series cinematic universe.
