Phaser Blast from the past

The first few Star Trek movies and some episodes were put out in this format. Capacitance Electronic Disc or CED.
The Capacitance Electronic Disc (CED) is an analog video disc playback system developed by RCA, in which video and audio could be played back on a TV set using a special needle and high-density groove system similar to phonograph records.
Yes a movie on an LP basically.
As for quality, think the worst VHS tape quality plus it skips. But evolution has to start somewhere.

Star Trek: The Motion Picture

I really had a hard time watching this. It’s like watching a movie in slow motion. Maybe it was my Frame of Mind. But about a third of the way in I started it over and turned on the commentary track. The two combined helped me maintain my interest level. Does this make me a bad Trekaholic? I have seen this movie probably about 25 times. It’s ok, but not great. The music is great, the characters are great, the writing is non-existent or at worst a copy/paste of previous Trek stories. I have seen a 90 minute reedit of TMP and it is a lot better. I don’t skip it when going through trek, but knowing Wrath of Kahn is next, there really is no comparison.
