And last but not least Voyage Home proved that Trek can be about something important and be fun at the same time.
Easily tied with II
as my personal favorite Trek movie. In so many ways, it's just not the kind of movie either the TNG
producers or Team Abrams would ever make. This one was my first real introduction to Trek at age 12. I also maintain that it 'looks' nicest of the TOS films, though you wouldn't call it epic in either the visual or the operatic sense of the word.
