I wish the Blu-ray included Kaufman's audio commentary. You have to watch the included DVD of the movie to hear it, which is lame.

Yup. Pretty sad. At least the movie comes in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack so you do get it.

I guess we should stipulate "rudimentary animation", what I think of as Jonny Quest style.

Indeed. Pierce Brosnan returns to action films. The woman shown is Olga Kurylenko, who I remember with a different 007 in Quantum of Solace.

I'm forgetting this one already. The action scenes were up to current standards, but the plot worse than usual.

That's a good one. I don't recognize it, but let me guess...

Obviously the spacecraft is featured, not incidental.

Clean, not grubby.

Looks 80s to me. Euro-styled? I've probably just got Italian SF on the brain.

Console stations have always been important in Star Trek. Those big buttons look like early Trek, but would they have used that chair styling and color?

I'll suggest Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979), the last film directed by Robert Wise.

Although... wasn't that scope ratio? Oh, well, it's all I've got.

I'll guess Star Trek: Generations (where they look over to see the empty chair and realize that Capt. Kirk is gone).

It's from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, and it's Spock's seat. Yet another fitting tribute to Leonard Nimoy, now gone from us.

It's the armrests that give it away--they fold down over the legs as a means of crash protection and stability in emergencies. (Kirk used them like that in one scene, as I recall.)

The Ongoing "Name That Movie" Contest

Good guesses, Bill. LineWalker nailed it. The console stations were designed by Lee Cole , you can see one of her signature red buttons (she got the idea from accordion/concertina keys). Set was reused for the second film (1982), but the science station was moved from right behind the Captain to its traditional position to his right (enabled easier dialog staging and framing, e.g. "He'll be back,... but from where?"). AR is off, I have to photograph off my TV for BDs.

Those seat headrests periscope up too, I don't remember when we saw that... first film, I suspect.

I have a copy of the ship and set designs from the first film ("Enterprise Flight Manual," February 1978; it references "Xon or subordinate" for the science officer) courtesy of Rick Sternbach, loads of neat details and even some in-jokes. If you watch, look for acronyms that are production staff names, e.g. Andrew Probert, Ms Cole, Joe Jennings ("the Enterprise is the Chris-Craft of sci-fi shows"), Sternbach, Lew Splittgerber, Janet Stokes, et al.. They gave the helm a throttle handle, if you look closely in one of the films, there's a n ignition key as well! The science station had the signature roll-out consoles....
