    How would you rank your favorite TOS and TNG films (together)? Mine would be:
    II: Wrath of Khan
    IV: The Voyage Home
    Star Trek: First Contact
    VI: The Undiscovered Country
    III: The Search for Spock
    Star Trek: Generations
    I: The Original Motion Picture
    V: The Final Frontier
    Star Trek: Insurrection
    Star Trek: Nemesis

    Late night post, didn't think this through. Let me fix my mistakes. I have only seen small clips of Star Trek (2009). Is it any good? Is it worth watching?

    What the heck. Let's do this again:

    The Wrath of Khan (not "Kahn")
    The Voyage Home
    The Undiscovered Country
    Star Trek (2009)
    First Contact
    The Search for Spock
    Generations
    The Motion Picture
    Insurrection
    Nemesis
    The Final Frontier

    As I've mentioned before, I pretty much have to flip a coin between Insurrection and Nemesis. I think I've only seen each of them once, so I can't really rule decisively on which one was better.

    For those wondering why FF is so high, I love the kirk-mccoy-spock dialogue in it. The campfire scene is one of my favourite ever in any trek. Generations and TMP switch if they cut out the eternal wide shots of the ent or inside of vger(too much even in the directors cut)

    I'd like to add that of these movies, I could watch TWOK, TSFS, TVH and Star Trek 09 over and over again and still enjoy them just as much. I might occasionally watch the TNG films and TUC & TMP, but mostly if they're just being shown on television and there's nothing better to watch. I doubt I will ever see TFF ever again.

    As for my list... ummm... changes every day. Star Trek is at the top and Insurrection at the bottom consistently.

    Roughly...

    The Wrath of Khan
    The Voyage Home
    The Search For Spock
    First Contact
    The Undiscovered Country
    Generations
    The Final Frontier
    The Motion Picture
    Insurrection
    Nemesis

    The top two and bottom two are pretty much set in stone. The rest shift around a bit.

    As always, these are just the order from which I prefer to watch the most to which I prefer to watch the least, not necessarily which I might think are the "best."

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

    1) The Wrath of Khan
    2) The Undiscovered Country
    3) The Voyage Home
    4) First Contact
    5) The Search for Spock
    6) Generations
    7) The Motion Picture
    8) Nemesis
    9) The Final Frontier
    10) ST09
    11) Insurrection

    ST09 is real hit or miss if you're going to like it or not. It's a flashy sci-fi action movie and worth watching for that, but as an actual Star Trek movie it just always strikes me as a pale imitation. Maybe the sequel will be better.
