    I wasn't allowed to watch First Contact at the cinema as I was 9, my first was Insurrection. I had all the others on VHS

    The first film I saw in theaters was Generations. I really enjoyed it. Thankfully I've been able to watch every one afterward in theaters since, even if I wasn't that enthused with Nemesis and Into Darkness. That being said, I plan on checking out Beyond.

    First Contact is the one I went to see multiple times. Though I did watch both Abrams films more than once. I watched Trek '09 three times, though I watched it one of those times because of a problem with the film projector. I watched Into Darkness twice, but the second time to see if it was bad as I thought the first time I saw it.

    The first and only Star Trek movie I've seen in the theater was Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country when I was 11. It was actually my introduction to Star Trek. I knew of the show/films, knew who Kirk and Spock were and all of that but I'd never actually watched it. I was at the mall with my mom and her friend and they decided they were going to see Ghost, I was given the choice of either seeing that or the only other movie starting around the same time, Star Trek VI. I wasn't exactly excited, but it seemed like a better choice than whatever chick flick they were going to see, and being a huge Star Wars fan I figured anything with spaceships would be better. I loved it though, I was an instant fan. And I like to think Captain Kirk saved me from having the awkward experience of sitting though the Ghost love scene with my mother and her friend. Kirk saved more than the Federation that day I assure you.

    While I became a big Trek fan, it was only the TOS stuff (which ended with that film so I was late to the party), it wasn't until many years later that I gave TNG a shot and by then all the films had already been released. The new stuff I've just waited for the DVD/Blu Ray, as I barely go to the theater anymore except for James Bond movies and I went to see Star Wars.

    The first one I saw in the theaters was IV. I think I was about 11. I was so excited that there was a new Enterprise introduced at the end of the film.

    TMP for me. I would have been 9 years old. The main thing i remember is being disappointed that the theme music was'nt the same as on the TV show and then being even more horrified that the uniforms were all the same colour.

    I also did'nt like the way Spock started out on Vulcan and Bones seemed to have left starfleet and grown a beard.

    I actually love the film now but to this 9 year old it was all wrong lol

    I think it was Insurrection cause i remember when Ru'afo used that genetic machine on Admiral Dogherty (I was 9 at the time it came out) it kinda gave me the willies.

    Oh, you kids, you. Some of us were in college when TMP opened. If you feel old, what does that make us? :)

    Hah! That was basically my response to the first BATMAN feature film, way back in 1966.
