Just depends on how you want to define "successful".
TMP was successful in booting Gene Roddenberry off the producer's chair.

TWOK was successful in telling a story that was actually about something.

TSFS was successful at telling a story without a key cast member, something that has not been done since.

TVH was successful in showing that you can follow up two dark and depressing movies with a light hearted and fun movie.

TFF was successful in proving that you can discount a movie from the series and suffer no consequences from the continuing narrative.

TUC was successful at giving the classic crew one last outing.

Generations was successful in putting the "Kirk vs. Picard" debate to rest once and for all. Kirk wins, Picard suuuuuuuuucks.

First Contact was successful for following TWOK's formula in continuing a story from an episode of their said series, having our hero be flawed and also being a horror story.

Insurrection is successful at existing.

Nemesis was successful at killing the original Star Trek universe.

Trek09 was successful in proving you can make a Star Trek story based solely on the general movie goers interpretation of what the franchise is even though they've never seen it.

Into Darkness was successful at proving Benedict Cumberbatch makes things better for international audiences.

And Orci, Kurtzman and Lindelof are successful at proving that no matter how much time you have at your disposal in perfecting a script, they still can't write a competent story that makes any kind of narrative sense.
