I chose just 3
TWOK
FC
and #6

But I could say good things about ANY of them, with the caveat of not liking Nemesis or #5....

Well, the poll is currently split beween films 2, 6 and 8. I went for The Undiscovered Country. Having not watched it first time around primarily because I was too young ;-) I approached it knowing that it was the final adventure of the original crew. The story was everything that you'd expect plus the camaraderie & pathos of the final scene provided a fitting conclusion for the original crew. Shame about Generations....

So I went with 6 cause it's the Best and everyone knows it. Nicholas Meyer is the best Trek director hands down. And he and many others made a movie that got non-trekkies and trekkies alike. Good job Mr. Meyer, I salute you!

I'm the moron that voted for insurrection.

Because it is the most similar to what the TV series was while having cinema scope. It focused a lot in the relationships of the crew and gave them all their time, as well as an ethical issue to fight for.

A true Trek movie.

Post My two-cents worth.

I voted for Generations only because of the scene where Data has a discussion with the tricorder. Otherwise, I would have voted for Insurrection.

I watched all of the movies right in a row a few weeks ago. I finally was able to decide on my favorite... The Undiscovered Country... by far.

After the ST:TMP letdown in 1979 the franchise could have easily folded right there and then. Maybe we expected too much from it and perhaps Robert Wise didn't really know or appreciate what he was getting into. More likely, however, was the rush to get the project on screen and Roddenberry's influence that bogged down the story. Seen as a re-boot of the TOS episode "The Changeling" the movie offered very little. While it was a reunion and provided a breathtaking panorama of the Enterprise, the interaction amongst the crew was sterile and unsatisfying. Much like the pajama-like uniforms they wore.



Enter ST:WOK and with it Ricardo Montalban as Khan. Nick Meyer went back to the roots of Star Trek and saved us all. Shatner, Nimoy and company re-discovered their roles and had fun doing it. The movie works because it is character-driven and because of its strength propells the other sequels.
