VI was deeper, that one it won't beat, but II is reachable.

The only Star Trek game I ever played was the combat board game with a zillion pieces... more years ago that I want to remember.

Not canon. And it doesn't actually make sense, given how old Voyager 6 is vs. the age of the Borg.

Nope, and I do not see disasters twice.

That would be a tall order. I don't see that happening. I'd say it's going to be good and probably the best Trek film in recent years, but I don't think it'll touch Khan.

I have to see it to be sure - but if it doesn't it may run it very, very close indeed.

That's a fair opinion.
Personally, I can't really answer this. It's gotten a lot of positive buzz, that's for sure. My journalistic background compels me to answer, "I have to wait and see it before I can say it actually beats TWOK.

ST: TMP (ST I) was a ponderous film, IMHO. It had some positives, but the pacing was very slow.
