TVH proves that you could make a successful Trek movie of that kind in 1986 (over a quarter of a century ago!), and that it's probably not possible now.
It's a good job we're not in Hollywood actually pitching the idea to studio fat cats then, and instead idly speculating amongst ourselves about what some of us like to see.
For my money, Master and Commander
is the ideal Trek movie template. It never felt rushed, the action was tense and dangerous and it left plenty of room for character moments and interaction. It was a perfectly balanced movie.
It even managed to throw in some good ol' fashioned exploration into the mix.
