William Shatner Admits "I Failed Horribly" Directing Star Trek V

William Shatner Admits "I Failed Horribly" Directing Star Trek V

William Shatner shoulders the blame for Star Trek V: The Final Frontier’s failure as the director who also came up with the central story of the USS Enterprise crew meeting ‘God’. Star Trek V was the lone Star Trek movie directed by Shatner, who was following up his friend, Leonard Nimoy’s, back-to-back successes as director of Star Trek III: The Search For Spock and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. Unfortunately, the reviews and box office for Star Trek V were disastrous, and Shatner’s film nearly sank the Star Trek movie franchise.
