Star Trek V 25th Anniversary.

We share our first viewings, what we think about it today, how it could be redeemed, and how much the lack of Rock Monsters hurt the final product. Plus, Mike tells us all about his favorite DVD bonus feature of all time, the infamous Star Trek V Press Conference. Could the press conference have been improved with more Rock Monsters?
