Again with the Klingons: 'Star Trek' in the '80s

Klingon Star Trek in the '80s means one thing to a lot of fans: "Doc Brown" as a Klingon commander! Yeah, the really nasty one who orders the death of Kirk's son, thus causing any real fan to stammer out:

"You Klingon bastard! You killed my son!"

Great, great line. In fact, maybe the only decent line for much of Star Trek 3: The Search for Spock.

This week on Stuck in the '80s, we revisit all the Trek movies of the '80s, from the brilliant Wrath of Khan to the miserably lame Final Frontier. With us to make sense of it all, the great Steve Persall, the film critic of the St. Petersburg Times. (By the way, he gives a big thumbs-up to the new Trek movie. Read his review here.) Seriously, if Persall gives a movie a great review, go see it. The dude has a hit streak better than A-Rod, without the steroids.
