How the Star Trek movies compare to other science fiction on film

Picture Star Trek movies are budgeted differently because we can make them for less money than big sci-fi movies and because we have some of the sets built. I also think it�s fair to say that with Star Trek movies, whilst there are special effects certainly (and the audience come to expect special effects), they�re built around the relationships, the family, and they just happen to be in space. A lot of other sci-fi movies are built around the visual effects, and that�s secondary on our shows.
