Best Star Trek Movies


The Top TenXW

1Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982)

Why is the new one number one? THIS is the true star trek movie. It has all the characters, THE Kirk, THE Spock, and THE Dr. Mccoy. Truly the best star trek movie of them all.

I understand why younger generations would vote up the 2009 reboot, but how did First Contact rise above Wrath of Khan?

Here are two reasons:

1. KHAN!

2. The scene of Spock's funeral is among one of the most touching movie scenes ever.

One of my favorite lines in this movie: " I shall avenge you! "

2Star Trek (2009)

Nimoy is legendary. He made this movie make a lot of sense. RIP Nimoy.

To be honest I don't like this movie but I respect your opinions.

Amazing movie! Far superior to the clunky old movies

I really don't like this one

3Star Trek VIII: First Contact (1996)

The BEST Movie of Star Trek. It is a great sequel to the episodes, and it's story has definitely had impact in future series (a great part of Voyager's plot was based on what was established in this movie. ). I think that this movie brought out the best in all the actors, and also portrayed the villains, the Borg, as a more formidable villain than had been previously shown through the episodes. Also, it was directed by Jonathan Frakes, who, in my opinion, is hands down the best director Star Trek has had (he also directed some of the greatest TNG and DS9 episodes). - iamseiko

The Borg has to be one of the greatest ever threats

This is my 3rd favorite along with wrath of khan and into darkness being my top 2

4Star Trek IV - The Voyage Home (1986)

The funniest and most happy Star Trek movies. Wrath of Khan is very close, but didn't have the humor needed - bilbro29

It's hard to find something negative to say about this one. Pretty damn entertaining. - BKAllmighty

This is a very fun movie, and it's thankfully aged well.

Great, funny, happy and Spock's back. Yay - LAJMS123

5Star Trek Into Darkness

Definitely too low. It really irritates me how some hard core Trek fans are almost upset at how good the new Trek Movies are due to their differing style. There is certainly merit-able qualities in Voyage Home, Undiscovered Country, and Wrath of Khan. But the Abrams films have more exciting pacing, stories, visuals, and great humor. The only Trek movie which really holds the same level of cinematic excitement of the two new movies is First Contact.

I voted on this list before I saw into darkness. As soon as I got home I changed my vote. This movie is the combination of my two favorite. Wrath of Khan and Voyage home. Has the action that Voyage home needed and the humor Wrath of Khan needed. Best Star Trek movie. - bilbro29

From an amazing Khan by Cumberbatch, to the amazing cast, director, and visuals of the 2009 film, this movie was amazing. Very intense and very well done. Hardcore trekkies need to stop whining that it's not boring and slow like the old movies.

Love the second movie; should be higher but at number 2 on the list.

6Star Trek VI - The Undiscovered Country (1991)

This one had an interesting plot.

My absolute favourite Movie

7Star Trek III - The Search for Spock (1984)

I haven't seen it, but want to badly.

This is the best one ever

8Star Trek VII: Generations (1994)

It was pure genuis bringing 2 of the greatest star trek captains in the same movie. When kirk died at the end I cried.

9Star Trek 1: The Motion Picture (1979)

The first and my favourite of the movies. spock at his best, as he understands the machines logic. the voyager story line is the most thought provoking, dealing with AI intelligence. Also still impressive visualy, even by todays standards.

I personally found this one boring, but again I respect your opinions.

It's definitely overall not the best but the scenery is amazing.

10Star Trek - Nemesis

It may not be the best film in the series, but it gave us a lot of really cool action that the series needed to bring back. It also finally made peace between the Humans and the Romulans possible ( a way). Picard's final mission did deserve a little more, but it was a rather decent ending for the Next Generation crew.

How can this be so low down? This film is amazing. The Enterprise E and the Scimitar are awesome. - EvilAngel

The Contenders

11Star Trek - Insurrection (1998)

Oh come on! This was great, how is the final frontier which is one of the worst movies ever made above this.

12Star Trek V - The Final Frontier (1989)

Ok, it was goofy, crazy, loopy, call it what you want. This movie is entertaining as hell and deserves to be higher than this. Nemises is in no way better than this movie and Generations is insanely high considering how slow moving it is. I'd say even the original movie isn't as good as this one! Crazy is better than boring!

This movie is underrated. Especially when Scotty says I know this ship like the back of my hand.

13Star Trek Beyond

I watched the movie and it was pretty okay better than insurrection or nemesis by far
