Welcome to Star Trek Answers. What would you like to know?

At that time there weren't enough non-network-affiliated television stations willing to affiliate with a new Paramount television network; and, Paramount noted the success Twentieth Century Fox and Lucasfilm had had with Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (Paramount later broke through with the United Paramount Network [UPN] and its flagship programme, Star Trek: Voyager). Thus, Paramount transferred the project to its motion picture division and called it Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Catchy title, eh? ProfessorTrek 04:43, July 17, 2011 (UTC)
