No "factuals".

What Star Trek film is your favorite and why?

Mine is First Contact.

Picard has to hunt his "White Whale" and battle his demons from the Borg.

-Pr-
Despite its issues, yeah, First Contact for me too.

Wrath of Khan and Undiscovered Country are next.

BruceSkywalker
Wrath of Khan, Generations, followed by First Contact..

Eon Blue
Into Darkness.

I know Generations gets a lot of hate, but I really like that first part with the Enterprise-B.

WRATH OF KHAN, to answer the OP.

Right up there are VOYAGE HOME and the 2009 reboot.

Wrath of Khan. Ricardo Montaban!

Yeah First contact is number three.

The voyage home is very good though.

The 2009 reboot and Nemisis also have their moments.

Kirk's death on Generations is a moment!

Wrath of Khan. Just a great stand alone Star Trek movie. You really don't even have to have watched any of the original series or any other Ster Trek movie to enjoy it. Great performance by Ricardo Montalban as Khan. Great plot. Best acting by the original cast in any of their Star Trek films. Great battle in the Mutara Nebula. One of the best death scenes of all times.

Wrath of Khan.

Best performances from the OG crew, great music and Khan is one of sci-fi's best villains.

cdtm
Galaxy Quest.

Hmmmm I cant reeally say..... I like the first 6 movies the best I think....

I can say which one IS THE NEWEST ONE I like and that is: Generations (Which would be Star trek 7 I guess)

By far my least favourite of the 3. Plus it destroyed the new Trek franchise. But critics generally praised it, and it was a bit more Trekky, so best to see it yourself and decide.

Seemed to me though like they were trying to do too many things at once, (a bit like Rise of Skywalker). A failed attempt to please the hardcore fans whilst simultaneously bring in the big box office dollars.

Undiscovered Country. Nicholas Meyer, director of Wrath of Khan, returned to direct a film that had some of the best social commentary and analogues along with dialogue in Trek's history.

This is a great point: my dad, who doesn't have much interest in Star Trek or sci-fi in general, sat my brother and I down on a Memorial Day or 4th of July and had us watch Wrath of Khan together. I've NEVER seen my dad watch another Star Trek film except maybe First Contact, and yet he still thought it was a definitive piece of film to watch. It is the quintessential Trek film.

I liked it, but it is much more like an extended Trek episode and not the two blockbuster films that preceded it. Amazing visuals for sure though, and Idris Elba joins the long list of excellent Trek villains.

Surtur
Honestly, besides wrath of khan and into darkness it's all dog shit.

And whoever decided to let Shatner direct a movie needs to be slapped.

confused

Not even First Contact or Trek 09?

-Pr-
Can't believe people are shitting on Beyond when the utterly awful, soulless Into Darkness exists.

I feel like it tries to do too much at once. It tries to be too many things. It wants to be a comedy, a horror movie, an action movie and a character study at the same time.

Plus, and I say this as someone who loved the Borg redesign and the action scenes and the use of a Borg queen... It's completely at odds with TNG, especially I, Borg.

Surtur
All the new Trek stuff lacks soul. It's not Star Trek. It is Star Wars done under a different name.

the script is poorly written.. no one has any good character development. idris elba whom is a fave of mine sucked as the villain. heck even his motivations made no type of sense.. the character of jayla(sp?) wasn't needed either

Yeah a great 3 film story there.

Robtard
Wrath of Khan - Cos Khan Vs Kirk, the proper Khan

Star Trek: The Motion Picture - Just a solid SciFi overall despite the cheesyness and the first time I saw Trek on the big screen, nostalgia factor to eleven

First Contact - Solid film overall and as Imp said, Picard vs The Borg, his own white whale
