    That was the first movie I saw and we did that as a school outing. It was fun

    TMP. I was pretty young then and the gruesome depiction of the transporter accident horrified me quite a bit.

    The Wrath of Khan, I was lucky my local theater was showing it. This was before Star Trek: Beyond.

    If I remember right, it was "First Contact" in an overcrowded theater where we got in at the scene where Picard was with Lilly showing her the forcefield where there is no glass window and telling her she could jump out, or whatever it was. Which I took literally as a 5 year old or whatever I was so I assumed she could go through space and land on Earth.

    Wasn't that part of the ship a cargo space, so that's why they had no "window?" There were lots of windows on that Enterprise so can't imagine them all being force fields.

    ST: TMP, seven times actually (well at least going to the movies was cheaper then, lol).

    I remember thinking how excellent all the model work in TMP was, and even today those ship models are totally bad ass.

    Insurrection. And I have to say that at the time I left the theatre feeling a bit disappointed. It’s only in later years that I started to appreciate the movie.

    I remember my dad saying Voyager was way better. It’s probably one of the reasons why the TNG movies weren’t as successful as those from the TOS crew. There was just way too much competition with Trek on TV.

    Star Trek: Generations. My best friends dad took us both to see it opening weekend. I would have been 12.

    Me too. I have never been able to appreciate that one, I'm afraid. I avoid it to this day.

    TUC. I was 14, guess that makes me a late bloomer with all the 4 year olds watching ST. :)
    If I had seen TWOK at age 5, I probably would've been scared. Seeing Scotty's crispy nephew probably wouldn't have been good for me.
