Exploration: File under beating a dead horse. Most of the exploration was a sidebar to the real Trek stories and sometimes even that was within a parable, so exploration was not the central theme. The movies explored little...Sulu was doing scientific tests on Excelsior (but that wouldn't have excited people as a story), Genesis was explored by Reliant and Grissom (again not the central story), even V'Ger--as alien as it was--went to Earth. Every Trek movie but ONE had scenes on Earth.

TMP: Threat to Earth from Massive Energy Cloud, no exploring - Scenes on Earth and in orbit
TWOK: Khan wants revenge, no exploring - Scenes on Earth and in Orbit
TSFS: Kirk goes to find Spocks body, no exploring - Scenes in Orbit of Earth
TVH: Threat to Earth from Whale Probe, no exploring - Most of movie on Earth
TFF: Terrorist attack on Nimbus 3, no exploring - Scenes on Earth and in Orbit
TUC: Federation/Klingon plot to start a war, no exploring - Scenes on Earth and in Orbit
GENS: Mad Man wants to get back to the Nexus, no exploring - Scenes in orbit of Earth (on Earth in Nexus)
FC: Threat to Earth from the Borg, no exploring - Scenes on Earth and in Orbit
INS: Mad Man wants fountain of youth, no exploring - NO EARTH, after 20 years of Trek movies.
NEM: Threat to Earth from Picards evil twin, no exploring - Wedding scene on Earth, Enterprise in drydock in Earth orbit
