Ushered out of spacedock in 1979 by the successes of both Star Wars and Close Encounters of the Third Kind, the Star Trek feature film series is composed of 13 films, the first six featuring TOS cast, four with the TNG cast, and a rebooted take on TOS with an entirely new cast and new objectives.

TOS Films

Starring the cast of The Original Series, these first six Trek films were a mix of highs and lows, with one wonderful trilogy wedged in the middle. This series gave us a new Enterprise, which is widely considered to be the best rendering of the original ship, and easily the most recognizable.

TNG Films

As The Original Series cast got too old… or perhaps too expensive, the cast of The Next Generation got to have their turn on the silver screen. Like the previous series, the second film stands out as a gem.

After Nemesis, Paramount decided to start from scratch… actually they decided to restart from scratch. They went back to the names and characters which were now pop culture icons, cast new, hip actors to bring them to life, and hired J.J. Abrams to make it happen.
