When Star Trek: The Motion Picture hit screens, it was at the time thought to be the most expensive motion picture ever made, with a total pricetag of $46 million. This included the costs for the never-made Star Trek: Phase II series along with multiple other attempts to bring the series to the big screen.
(In fact, Superman: The Movie ended up beating it with a final budget of $54 million, a fact that was kept hidden for several years after the movie’s release.)
