Star Trek is one of the most popular TV series ever created.
It has been cited as an inspiration for hundreds of Sci-Fi films, comic books, thrillers, video games, and technological inventions.
The franchise will soon celebrate its 50th anniversary, so we have ranked every Star Trek movie ever made, from worst to first:
Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)
Compared to other Star Trek movies, this film had a sloppy plot that butched the legacy of “Khan Noonien Singh.”
Most fans describe it as “watchable.” No wonder why J.J. Abrams stepped down from directing.
Star Trek: The Final Frontier (1989)
The Final Frontier is considered to be one of the worst films of the series. The seriousness of the plot totally conflicts with the lowbrow humor of Star Trek, creating confusion for fans and critics alike.
Star Trek: Nemesis (2002)
Featuring a mix of silly ideas, Star Trek: Nemesis was a franchise killer. Critics gave it the worst reviews the series had since The Final Frontier. Sub par performance from this great cast.
Star Trek: Generations (1994)
Generations is often described as Star Trek’s version of a bad soap opera. It has no dramatic tension with Kirk’s death and delivers little action. The next generation stepped up big time with their next film “First Contact.”
Star Trek: Insurrection (1998)
This film lacked the adrenaline rush of its predecessors. Most fans think of it as a long, boring episode of the show.
One highlight of the movie was that Picard scored with the chick.
Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979)
The Motion Picture can be summed up in just one word: boring. Its emphasis on ideas and exploration instead of action separates it from the other movies of the series.
Star Trek Beyond (2016)
Star Trek Beyond brings back all the excitement and fun of the Original Series. The screenplay was written by Simon Pegg, and with director Justin Lin at the helm the film satisfies both TOS and Kelvin Universe fans.
Star Trek: The Search For Spock (1984)
The Search For Spock is considered one of the best movies in the franchise, offering a great story on how the Enterprise crew worked together against all odds to save a friend.
Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country (1991)
The Undiscovered Country was based on real world situations, such as the fall of the Berlin Wall. Although it drags a bit in the middle, it’s a terrific movie overall. Kim Cattrall was also pretty hot as a Vulcan.
Star Trek: The Voyage Home (1986)
Despite the lack of actual science fiction, this film is fun and packed with action. Fans can watch Kirk and his crew going back in time to bring the whales into their future to save planet earth.
Star Trek: First Contact (1996)
Described as an action-horror film, Star Trek: First Contact stands out from the other films. Due to its linear action and intriguing story, it’s accessible even to those who haven’t seen the previous movies of the series.
Star Trek (2009)
Abrams’ Trek featured a young crew and lots of fun-filled scenes. Despite the plot holes, this film is so exciting and beautifully shot that you’ll want to watch it over and over again.
Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan (1982)
The Wrath of Khan is a great choice even for those who haven’t seen the original series. It stands a lone as a great film, telling a story about true friendship, middle age and loss.
