    Apparently this is their list of best ST films


    1. The Wrath of Khan
    2. First Contact
    3. The Undiscovered Country
    4. The Voyage Home
    5. The Search for Spock
    6. Star Trek (2009)
    7. Galaxy Quest (!!!)
    8. Generations
    9. The Motion Picture
    10. Nemesis
    11. Insurrection
    12. The Final Frontier
    13. Into Darkness


    Really? FF better than STiD?


    I can proudly say no one here agrees with this list.

    ST09 in 6th place?

    that films belongs in the top 3.


    Looks like the JJ Trek haters are out in full force on that site.


    My Order


    1. Star Trek (2009)
    2. The Wrath of Khan
    3. First Contact
    4. The Undiscovered Country
    5. STiD
    6. The Voyage Home
    7. The Search for Spock
    8. Generations
    9. The Motion Picture
    10. Nemesis
    11. Insurrection

    I'm sure there is some silly reason for it being last.

    "It's not real Star Trek." But Galaxy Quest is, of course.

    I have doubts about the accuracy of this "poll," anyway.

    Into Darkness being at the very bottom is a complete joke.

    Ask at a different convention, with different guest and you'll get a different result.

    Badass Digest, polling the hardcore fans at Vegas Con - yeah, results like that aren't too surprising. Doesn't mean much, though.

    I don't mind Galaxy Quest being on this list, frankly. It still has the right tone of adventure to me. It laughs with, not at, dependable Trek tropes, and best of all, it's not at all cynical -- if anything, there's something to be said about the fact that love is injected back into a venerable franchise. It's certainly not paint-by-numbers like Generations or Insurrection.

    TFF way better than any of them except TWOK and TMP.

    I think I'd put GQ in fourth place after those, just because there are so many annoying things in TUC Then I guess TVH, & SFS & FC & GEN & INS & NEM, followed by ID and 09 definitely last.

    Nice poll, 'Badass'.

    I still say Trek fans will (eventually come to their senses and) look back on this time with great fondness.

    STiD worse than NEM, INS or TFF? More like 'Dumbass'...
