Post Best Star Trek movie!

So, out of all the Star Trek movies, which one was your favourite?

For me, it's the Wrath of Khan. I feel that not only is it the best Star Trek movie, but also one of the best movies of all time, imo.

Here is how I rank the movies-

1)Star Trek The Wrath of Khan
2)Star Trek First Contact
3)Star Trek 6
4)Star Trek 4
5)Star Trek 3
6)Star Trek(2009)
7)Star Trek Into Darkness
8)Star Trek Generations
9)Star Trek The Motion Picture
10)Star Trek 5

I haven't seen Insurrection or Nemesis yet.

I'm honestly not sure whether I like 2 or 6 more, but I decided to vote for 2.

I guess you'd vote for that one by default?

I didn't much like the first new Star Trek movie, but I was entertained by Into Darkness.

Really though, the movies are mostly spectacle. The really great Star Trek stuff is in the episodes. I'm not sure if I'm a sufficiently hardcore fan, however.

I liked Into Darkness. I got to see it for free a week before it came out.

Some people on this forum are snobby about their favorite nerd franchise. They stick their noses up at me in regards to Star Trek, LotR, and TES lore. You would think nerds would be more friendly but in their own environment they try to stratify everyone.

Oh, God, nerds are notorious snobs.

I mean, I'm not any better, but I totally admit it.

Not wishing to be a "Nerd snob" or what have you, but Star Trek is ruined thanks to Abrams and his actionwankfest generation.

Eh, I like the abrams stuff, if only because, for once, we get to really see the federation.


That said, my favorite is the sixth movie, easily. I've been bombarded with moby dick metaphors for far too goddamn long to really enjoy star trek 2 the same way it was enjoyed when it came out.

Dude - you saw EARTH and 2 seconds of Vulcan which was then promptly fucked up the ass without lube. That's it. And both looked more Starship Troopers than Star Trek.

The thing is, Star Trek and Middle Earth are very popular franchises, with lots of detail in each of them. And both franchises have divided fanbases these days, with Star Trek being divided into those who support Abrams and those who don't, and lotr being divided into those who hate Jackson and those who don't. And both franchises are also full of people who know each and every detail of the story, and thus, get irritated when they see people who are relatively ignorant.

Seriously, these are the two most nerdy franchises of all time. Lotr is fantasy for geeks, while Star Trek is sci-fi for geeks.

You forgot those factions that hate TOS, dislike TOS, only like TOS, hate Voyager, hate Enterprise, hate Voyager AND Enterprise or all of the above.

Given the fact that i can't decide whether i like 2, 6 or 9 the most i'll just say Galaxy Quest is the best Star Trek movie.

I'd say that's one of the biggest problems in any franchise. Lore snobs don't do anyone any favors (and I'm not saying you're one—you don't seem to be from what I can tell). It's not so much their dedication to lore, as that can be important (particularly when giving feedback) but simply their attitude towards those not in the know.

This.

Star Trek's fanbase has always varied wildly in what they love AND hate.

Saying that, I don't know any longtime TNG/DS9 fans who like/d Abrams bullshit. If you've only ever watched TOS or bits of Voyager, I'm sure Abrams lens-flare wankery isn't that jarring, fair enough; but if you've watched DS9, one of the finest series of all time (not just Sci Fi) it feels like a massive Klingon has just bent you over and gone in full QAPLA' with no warning.

Eh, Earth and the federation are pretty much synonymous anyway, at least from TNG onwards (I especially like Voyager's "Wow, we found a planet that's just like Earth, meaning we could stay here and it would just be like returning home. Right, alien crew members?"). And Into Darkness and nameless both showed us a good bushel of future earth, whereas the series and previous movies always kept to areas without tech or a handful of starfleet offices due to budget.

Seen most of TNG, though admittedly only a bit of DS9 (first season, bit of the second), but I like the Abrams movies.

Though admittedly, I started watching with Voyager and enterprise. In some miraculous way, I only ever managed to see the good voyager and enterprise episodes back when I wuz young.

Actually he DID give you a warning: "This is not your father's QUAPLA'!".

I'd prefer not to see Earth at all. I want to see strange new worlds, new civiliations or at least a damn good fight between starships. Not EARTH of all things of boredom. A bar in Iowa, are you fucking kidding me?

Unless you like WoD.

Naw we're cool.

Yeah I realize I haven't gotten involved in Star Trek, TES, or LotR as much as other people. I don't claim to otherwise or challenge people's knowledge of those franchises lore. I don't care as much for the ego contest. I am just even trying to understand those things to the extent some people have. My interests lie elsewhere.
