Gene Roddenberry's novelization goes some way in providing background and context to the events that are played out on the screen. This book actually moves along at a good clip, and while it isn't written with a lot of style it does accomplish what it sets out to do: fill in the blanks that might seem to be missing in the film. If the movie had included some of the materiel in the novelization a little more closely some of the criticism regarding lack of character wouldn't have arisen.

Star Trek: The Motion Picture (novel). A Novel is a 1979 novelization of the film Star Trek: The Motion Picture, which was released in the same year. It is especially notable for being the only Star Trek novel to be written by Gene Roddenberry, who created the franchise. It was also the first Star Trek novel published by Pocket Books, beginning a prolific relationship with the franchise that continues as of 2012

Since it was the first Star Trek film, it would have been less exciting had it followed the same format as the television series. Many of the fans would have been able to anticipate the storyline making the film less interesting. Consequently, Gene changed some of the formatting, which made the film far more exciting. He was born 24th October 1921 in the town of El Paso, Texas. This film thrust the Star Trek franchise to a new level of Hollywood style large budget movies of a high calibre never seen before. Message from Gene Roddenberry - Preface.

Star Trek: The Motion Picture. A novel by Star Trek's creator Gene Roddenberry-based on the screenplay by Harold Livingston and story by Alan Dean Foster-the human adventure is just beginning.

Seriously, the book gives a much better insight to the story! I understand that, when they made the movie, they had to deal with limited technology and a constrained budget, and I will always love the original movies for how they were able to work around such problems. However, the books give you what the older movies are incapable of: the inner workings, feelings, and personal motivations of the characters.
For instance, I never really understood Kirk's character in the movie. He kind of annoyed me, actually. I could never understand why he would take a promotion and then spend the rest of his life fighting to go back. The book gave a most satisfying answer. And then there's Spock. I very much appreciated the his struggle even before I read the book, but to see the inner thoughts of a man trying so hard to ignore the one he aptly refers to as his "brother" and his old friends adds yet another layer to the story. As for the others, they are all wonderfully represented. From Bones' headstrong and decidedly correct personality, to Uhura's expert manner, its all here in this book!
So if you've seen the movie, and liked it on at least some level, I suggest you read this book as a necessary accompaniment.

If you are the type who has felt the need to know more than what TV/movie medium can provide, this book is for you. Absolutely delightful, moving and thought provoking as well as great science fiction. Loved every page.

The film version of this story has often gotten some heat over the years since its release in 1979. Most often it's been labeled as too slow, too much focus on visual f/x and not enough character. Some years ago the Director's Edition of the film addressed the pacing criticisms in a well edited cut along with some freshened up f/x as they were meant to be done originally. But sadly a new film cut can't put in what wasn't filmed in the first place.

Gene Roddenberry's novelization goes some way in providing background and context to the events that are played out on the screen. This book actually moves along at a good clip, and while it isn't written with a lot of style it does accomplish what it sets out to do: fill in the blanks that might seem to be missing in the film. Also, unlike some novelizations of movies, I can't really think of anything in here that contradicts the movie.

I love the film Star Trek - The Motion Picture, particularly the Director's Edition, yet even I admit it needed a little more character drama. If the movie had included some of the materiel in the novelization a little more closely some of the criticism regarding lack of character wouldn't have arisen.

While I'd never been a fan of the film, I'd been looking for something outside the normal vein that could still ring with an air of authority after a decade-long lapse from Star Trek. Gene Roddenberry's credit as this piece's author flagged this volume as something fitting the bill (I was thankfully unaware of claims it had been ghostwritten; for me, the characters seem too vulnerably human to have come from the depressingly romantic realist writers I've come to associate with Star Trek fiction).

Roddenberry covers instances of technology and commentary never mentioned within canon, including Starfleet cranial implants and Kirk's views on a rumoured romantic relationship between himself and Spock. The introduction, written by Roddenberry from Kirk's point of view, should be mandatory reading for anyone involved in future movie/series material, and is almost worth the purchase price in itself.

Favourite quotes:
- "I have always looked upon the Enterprise and its crew as my own private view of Earth and humanity in microcosm. If this is not the way we really are, it seems to me most certainly a way we ought to be. During its voyages, the starship Enterprise always carried much more than mere respect and tolerance for other life forms and ideas - it carried the more positive force of love for the almost limitless variety within our universe. It is this capacity for love for all things which has always seemed to me the first indication that an individual or a race is approaching adulthood." - Kirk
- "Vejur was everything that Spock had ever dreamed of becoming. And yet Vejur was barren! It would never feel pain. Or joy. Or challenge. It was so completely and magnificently logical that its accumulation of knowledge was totally useless."

My rating is different for different aspects. If you're looking for the same camaraderie, crew relationships, and humor of the original series, it's not there in this one. That doesn't return till The Wrath of Khan.
However, if you're just looking for a good space movie, this one is great.
If you love the Enterprise and looking at the ship, you'll be in Heaven.

This is my favorite Star Trek book, and one of my favorites of even non-Trek books. Obviously all the characters are perfect and accurately written, since it's by Roddenberry himself. The writing is very thoughtful, and the story follows the same plot as the movie but with so much added background that it didn't ruin the story at all for me. As soon as I finished, I had to go and watch the movie again, and this made it so much more interesting. The description of Spock's encounter with V'ger is incredible -- there's a big discussion about existentialism, machinery and the importance of human emotion. Seriously, read this book. It's unbelievable.

Great supplement to the movie that gives much insight to the overall plot. The first few chapters give a lot of background on Admiral Kirk. The final few chapters really unpack what happens to V’ger, Decker and Ilia.
I remember reading this when it first came out in '79 and the feeling of astonishment that Roddenberry had written such an intelligent (but short) novel. Today it still reads well, but I do wonder if he eally wrote the book or if it was ghost written. It's also a reminder that the concept of the V'Ger story had so much potential that the film just never captured.
