Live long and prosper…and don’t forget the popcorn. To mark its 40th anniversary, Star Trek: The Motion Picture will be returning to theaters.

The first installment of the Star Trek film series was released in 1979. It starred much of the cast from the original television show: William Shatner (above), Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, George Takei, Walter Koenig, Nichelle Nichols, and James Doohan. Critics weren’t too excited about the movie, but Trekkies flocked to see it anyway.

The revival of Star Trek: The Motion Picture will only have a two-day run, September 15th and 18th. Tickets go on sale August 2nd at Beam me up to the multiplex, Scotty.
