Cancelled Movies. Wiki

Star Trek: The God Thing (later named In Thy Image for Star Trek: Phase II) is an early version of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, written by Gene Roddenberry. It is one of several attempts to bring Star Trek to the big screen, when the original series made a cult following.


The plot is similar to The Motion Picture, but V'ger would have been seen as a God.

Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. The CEO of Paramount at the time (who is a Catholic) didn't like the idea because of the spiritual connection.


  • Several writers were brought in to rewrite the premise to the movie.
  • Most of the concept for this film would end up in Star Trek 5.
  • Paramount Pictures released the final version of Star Trek: The Motion Picture in 1979.
