Best Star Trek Movies

The Top Ten

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

Nothing beats that movie. Realistic science, an amazing villain, bromance between the main characters and a very emotional finale with a heart-wrenching sacrifice.

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.

This is the best. The first 2 star trek reboots were horrible, don't understand why they're rated so highly and this is coming from a 14 year-old

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

1 thing this movie did that was WAY better than the old movies was giving us a good Captain Kirk, Chris Pine as Kirk was just outstanding, much much better than the horrible casting choice of William Shatner in the old movies

I have to give respect to the old films, they deserve no. 1, but for me I just can't stop liking the 2009 reboot. The Enterprise was beautiful, it all just worked. I just find this movie more entertaining

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

A great sequel/prequel to the first Star Trek- series. Love it! I can't wait untill the posters of Star Trek 2 reaches the walls of the cinema!

3 Star Trek VIII: First Contact (1996) Star Trek VIII: First Contact (1996) Product Image

Great, great movie. Didn't like it at first and then I realized how good it was to the timeline. Wrath of Khan will always be the best of the "old" series and of course Into Darkness is the best in the new but First Contact has an amazing feeling about it especially when the Vulcans arrive at the end and basically save humanity from itself. Love this movie.

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).

Best new generation movie. Top 5 Star Trek in my opinion

The Borg has to be one of the greatest ever threats

4 Star Trek IV - The Voyage Home (1986) Star Trek IV - The Voyage Home (1986) Product Image

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

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

This is the best one for sure. Hilarious and so genuine to the time setting. Spock trying to fit in with his "colourful metaphors" was just great. Bones and Kirk were great, and the scene where Kirk is demoted is such great acting by Shatner. Definitely better than Undiscovered Country, First Contact, Star Trek 2009, and Wrath of Khan.

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

5 Star Trek VI - The Undiscovered Country (1991) Star Trek VI - The Undiscovered Country (1991) Product Image

This one had an interesting plot.

My absolute favourite Movie

Good murder mystery plot

Underrated, I think, better than IV, in my opinion, but a little less than TWOK. Deserves second place, tied with First Contact.

6 Star 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.

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.

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

Cosmo Kramer's right, this is the best Star Trek movie.

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

This is the best one ever

8 Star Trek VII: Generations (1994) Star Trek VII: Generations (1994) Product Image

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

Make this to top 5

Saw it with a friend and we both had a good time. Great cast score effects and emotional scenes even if the last parts with the nexus are a bit contrived. Shame people give it flack for killing kirk which I've never minded and I'm more a fan of tos than tng.

9 Star Trek 1: The Motion Picture (1979) Star Trek 1: The Motion Picture (1979) Product Image

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

my personal favorite, I loved this one, has everything on it

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.

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

10 Star Trek - Nemesis Star Trek - Nemesis Product Image

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 (...in 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.

This was a decent movie, I have no clue why my parents hated it.

Star Trek Nemesis and Star Trek Into Darkness. Top two.

The Contenders

11 Star Trek - Insurrection (1998) Star Trek - Insurrection (1998) Product Image

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

Please make this above Nemesis. This one teaches a good lesson and at least *someone* doesn't die.

Get this above nemesis, it's much better

Underrated. com

12 Star Trek Beyond

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

It's amazing! I love Jaylah. She's so pretty and awesome. For some reason she reminds me of Rosalina in Super Mario Galaxy. The movie reminds me of Super Mario Galaxy somewhat. Great movie

It was good, but by no means the best one.

Much better than Into Darkness

13 Star Trek V - The Final Frontier (1989) Star Trek V - The Final Frontier (1989) Product Image

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.
