How We Determine Our Grades

A sequel to this film was made, titled 2010:The Year We Make Contact. Exploring the final frontier (Star Trek) and depicting galaxies far, far away (Star Wars), has made for big box office returns for two movie franchises.

(Obviously our expectations for space explorations are a little closer to home.)
