I've always enjoyed The Undiscovered Country the most of them all, primarily because of the story and I thought it was a great ending for the TOS era. Wrath of Khan and First Contact do follow very closely behind as second and third.

I cannot lump all the movies into one list.

There was the TOS era and the TNG era.

The best TOS movie, IMHO....The Undiscovered Country, just edging out The Wrath of Khan.

The best TNG movie, IHMO...Nemesis, just edging out First Contact.

For me it is Star Trek: The Wrath of Kahn. A close second is Star Trek: First Contact. Both those films are hard acts to follow. Each represented the best of what those cast could do on a big screen.
I would have to agree there. However I liked FC more because in my opinion the Borg represent a more imposing psychological threat than Khan did.

Have to go with Wrath of Khan - great story with both action and character, depth and emotion, great effects and battles, great music score and production. It just seems to always tick the right boxes.

I'm also going to say The Wrath of Khan. Khan made such a strong villain and you need that in a Trek film, or any film with such well known and capable heroes. It also had real tension, drama and pathos. It called on it's cast for strong performance and they delivered. I'd say it had some of the best acting in Trek.

I'm planning on watching it again soon. Since Ricardo Montalban passed I've been wanting to see him again as Khan. He was by far the best villian in a Star Trek film. I remember at the time it came out I thought "Mr. Roarke from Fantasy Island ..... That's going to be a stupid movie" Then I saw it and thought I was stupid for ever thinking that. I remember there was some people who thought he wore a fake chest! That was all him, that always amazed me.

Bana is a fantastic actor but Montalban may never be beat. Another funny thought is that I am willing to be open to seeing other actors play Kirk, Spock and Bones but feel I might be offended if anyone else was ever cast as the Khan character.

The choice of Khan as a villian was brillant, whoever thought of bringing back a character from TOS rather than create a new one was really smart in my opinion. None of the other films have done that.

But your love for V is noted and ...... I see your pain!
I thought The Voyager Home was a good movie that could have been sooo much better if there had been a different director.
