Well, which one is the worst(!) Star Trek Movie.    evil laugh

I pick Star Trek V, because it had a bad story, bad effects and Shatner directed it. "Go climb a rock." Oh, my...

STV: The Final Frontier.

Although Generations was pretty bad as well. I haven't seen Genesis yet, it doesn't premiere here for another couple of months.  frown

For me, First Contact is the best one.

I haven't seen Nemesis yet, so I can't comment on that one. I hope they go easy on the Data jokes.

Generations was very boring, and I wish they had found a better reason to crash the Enterprise-D on the surface of a planet.

In addition, I didn't see some of these movies, or it was too long ago.

There are two, the orginal version, and the Directors Edition, including new visual effects and a new cut. At least it looks better now.

Final Frontier at least has Billy Shatner hamming it up for the cameras.  The TNG movies are saddled with a bunch of actors who left their charisma behind when the series ended.

I pick Genrations as the worst movie.  I could prattle on about how bad it is until the cows come home, but I'll just go with the most glaring example of how ineptly put together it is:  Kirk's death at the beginning of the movie has a zillion times more poignancy than his death at the end.

I bought the new version of the first movie - it still drags a bit, but it's edited well and does improve it.  V is easily the worst - my favourite first generation movie is the Scooby Doo inspired VI.  First Contact is my all time favourite.

that's a tough one between generations and the final frontier. but i think the final frontier wins because of utter crapiness.
i haven't seen nemesis yet, but i heard it sucks too.

by far the best star trek movie is the first contact.

Nemesis is the 10th movie, so by Star Trek law (only the odd numbered movies suck) it should be good ...

oh hang on, I really liked Insurrection

I think The Voyage Home was the worst one - I believe that's the one were they go back in time (conveniently to the 1980s America) to fetch a whale.

It had it's funny lines - agreed. But come on, San Francisco anno 1980, how shallow is that? Hell, I've seen Teletubbies in more science fictionous settings than that. Why didn't they just let the entire crew be guests on Letterman and make it even funnier while they were at it? "We'll be right back with Uhura, Paul!"

I have to say The Wrath of Khan is just barely the best ST movie (IMHO), barely edging out First Contact. The worst? Hmmm.... I loathe to actually hate anything (hey, waitaminute  wink) but Generations just feels wrong, somehow. Ideally, First Contact would have been number 7 (introducing Kirk to the 24th Century Borg) but that's my pick.

I said Generations was the worst, and I stick by it.  Let me take you through my reasons:

1)There's too many fanwank moments in it.  Look's there's Kirk meeting Picard!  Look, there's Chekov and Scotty!  Look, it's the Duras sisters!  Look, it's Guinan!

2)There are too many deaths of notable characters.  Kirk (apparently) dies at the start, then over the course of the film Picard's brother and nephew die, the Duras siters die, the Enterprise crew die when the star explodes, and finally Kirk dies a second time, with a death scene that pales in comparison to his "death" on the Enterprise-B.

3)Data's emotion chip was a bad move.  Since then he's been nothing but a wisecracking arsehole.

4)The writers crash the Enterprise-D for no better reason than they wanted to see what crashing it would look like.

5)The Nexus is supposed to be a reality seperate from our own.  So how does Kirk and Picard's defeating Soran in the Nexus affect what's going on in the "real" universe?

6)Alternately, if you think Kirk and Picard left the Nexus to fight Soran, how did they leave the Nexus?

Still, what can you expect from a film that has Brannon Braga on the writing credits...

Anyone who says IV was bad should be dragged behind a nuclear wessel!

V was clearly the worst but its veeeery close to Generations. The stupid campfire song irritated me along with the fan-dance was just hideous and Kirk being very friendly with the Klingons at the end even though they had murdered his son was ust BS!

And why would anyone choose to name a planet after a cloud? (or a doop ship!)

Actually the camp fire scenes was just about the only saving grace of ST V. It was nice to see them build on the comeraderie [?] between Spock, Bones and Kirk.

The fan-dance was toe-crinching at best.

J.J. Abrams is becoming the next Gene Roddenberry.

Paramount is breathing life into its "Star Trek" franchise by setting
"Mission: Impossible III" helmer J.J. Abrams to produce and direct the 11th
"Trek" feature, aiming for a 2008 release.

Damon LindelofDamon Lindelof and Bryan Burk, Abrams' producing team from
"Lost," also will produce the yet-to-be-titled feature.

Project, to be penned by Abrams and "MI3" scribes Alex Kurtzman and Roberto
OrciRoberto Orci, will center on the early days of seminal "Trek" characters
James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock, including their first meeting at Starfleet
Academy and first outer space mission.

Deal reflects ParPar's bullishness on "MI3," which launches worldwide next
weekend, and underlines the goal of Paramount chief Brad Grey and prexyprexy
Gail BermanGail Berman to re-energize the pipeline via high-profile
tentpoles while revitalizing the Par brand with top-tier talent such as
Abrams.

"MI3" is the first pic to be released that's been greenlit by Grey.

"Star Trek" has been Hollywood's most durable performer other than James
Bond, spawning 10 features that have grossed more than $1 billion and 726 TV
episodes from six series.

Decision to relaunch "Star Trek" comes less than a year after UPNUPN pulled
the plug on "Star Trek: Enterprise""Star Trek: Enterprise" amid dismal
ratings following a four-season run and four years after "Star Trek:
Nemesis""Star Trek: Nemesis" turned in the worst performance of the 10 films
with $43 million domestic.

Original series created by Roddenberry launched in 1966 on NBC and ended in
1969.

During the following decade, the original 78 episodes of "Trek" became
staples in syndication and helped mobilize the fan base along with
conventions, books and merchandise. Paramount released "Star Trek: The
Motion Picture" in 1979 and saw domestic grosses hit $82 million. The next
three films grossed a combined $263 million domestically, so Paramount
started the second TV series, "The Next Generation," in 1987, with Rick
Berman and Roddenberry co-exec producing.

Under Sherry LansingSherry Lansing's tenure, Rick Berman had been teamed
several years ago with Jordan KernerJordan Kerner and Kerry McCluggageKerry
McCluggage to develop an 11th feature set in the early days of Starfleet
Academy.

God I hope this doesnt fuck up....

I'm all for saving Star Trek in a way. Despite death threats from Teral, I will say that Enterprise was incredible. The whole 4th Season was the best of any Trek Series since Season 6 of Deep Space Nine. And when the show died, I really felt like shit...

I will support any attempt to breathe life into this wonderful franchise.

And on topic...The Motion Picture sucked utter ass.
