[Up to Star Trek]
Ever since I picked up a copy of "The Making of Star Trek: The Motion Picture" by Susan Sackett in 1984, I've been curious about how we got to the final movie.  After decades of research, scouring auction sites, the generosity of other fans and the occasion begging, I've finally put together a nice set of timelines and synopses that show the evolution of the movie, from it's beginnings as a possible Genesis II episode in 1973 to the 2022 Director's Cut (which I got to see with the creators!)

Even the shooting draft went through multiple evolutions after filming started.  Specifically most of the last third of the movie.
