Frankenstein, Horizon

Dr. Frankenstein and Fritz

Frankensteins monster

Frankenstein's monster

Frankenstein was a 1931 Earth movie based on the novel of the same, written in the early 19th century by Mary Shelley. Frankenstein was a classic of the horror genre and was viewed by many as the first major work of science fiction.

The film featured actors Colin Clive as Henry Frankenstein, Dwight Frye as Fritz, and Boris Karloff as Frankenstein's monster. The film was followed by several sequels, including Bride of Frankenstein, Son of Frankenstein, and a spoof, Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein.

Commander "Trip" Tucker was very fond of this movie and its sequels. He kept an action figure of the Frankenstein monster in his quarters. (ENT: "These Are the Voyages...")

In 2153, Tucker managed to convince Chef to show a three-night marathon of Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, and Son of Frankenstein, supposedly the three greatest horror movies ever (and maybe Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein) while Travis Mayweather was out. He and Jonathan Archer convinced T'Pol to watch the movie, not without a great effort. Although T'Pol was initially skeptical, preferring a dramatic reading of the book, she found the movie interesting enough to shush Phlox when he was began talking about medical details during the projection. T'Pol believed that the Vulcans felt very much like Frankenstein's monster when they landed on Earth. The Humans feared them, but as Captain Archer pointed out, the townspeople didn't chase them with "torches and pitchforks". Nonetheless, T'Pol considered showing the film to Ambassador Soval and other Vulcan diplomats to understand Human psychology. As a result, Tucker and Archer began to regret pressing T'Pol into watching the film in the first place. T'Pol planned to watch the sequel, Bride of Frankenstein. (ENT: "Horizon")

Sound designer Ben Burtt used a recording of the props from the film as part of the transporter sound effects in Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness. [1]
