Make it so.
The first 6 movies are basically 2+ hour long TOS episodes. I mean, Star Trek I was based off an episode called "The Changeling" and Star Trek II was a sequel to the episode "Space Seed", with Khan Noonien Singh. Then, Star Trek III and IV were basically continuing the story of Star Trek II. =P Star Treks V and VI were sequels of the episode "City on the Edge of Forever". So, basically, each movie was a sequel based off another episode, not entirely original storyline creations, which makes it like you're watching a very special episode in theaters. =P

END NERD TALK.

Probably because it began as a REALLY corny show and is currently on hiatus with an ending series that sucked. =P

Huh, that's quite interesting. Although I did get the impression that I was missing something in II, as everybody already seemed to know Kahn.
Channel 4 here in Britain is showing the Trek films in order once a week over this summer, so I've watched/rewatched a lot of the films recently.

Personally, the original Star Trek films (1-6) are the greats (even though 5 was bad for most people, it was still good in some aspect =P) Then, with the TNG movies, they started to get sloppy with writing and focus more on special effect gimmicks.

The new Star Trek film was excellent, however I don't really find this alternate reality thing really plausible IMO. =P

@Miciyo: Yes, "Trouble With Tribbles" was easily the best episode of TOS Season 2. =P

Aha! I did see the DS9 episode where they went back in time to TOS with the tribbles, Trials and Tribble-ations!

I think there was really only one great TNG film, First Contact. Although the others were by no means terrible, they just weren't that great.

Although I have to disagree with OP. I agree Star Trek is an amazing frachise, the first incarnation is simply aweful, although what it spawned were simply amazing. The Next generation, Voyager and DS6 are really good series. Don't get me wrong though, I like the old films with the originally cast, just the episodes in my opinion are dire.

You really think First Contact was any good? Didn't the whole Data wanting to have feelings ruin it for you? Cause it did me. In my opinion the best TNG film is Generations, how it handles the transistion from new to old is just great. Add the fact Bill is great along side Patric Stuart and it simply makes it awesome.

@Michiyo: "Come In Peace" sign is actually the Vulcan V, meaning "Live Long and Prosper". It first appeared in TOS Season 2.
