    I’ve gotta choose one? Drats! Well…go with Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. It’s one of the movies that got me into Star Trek to begin with. 🙂

  2. Mason Radcliffe

    November 2, 2016 at 12:06 pm

    Wrath of Khan always.

    First Contact is my favorite film, but watching Beyond for the first time was my favorite Star Trek movie experience, because now I have Trekkie friends to watch it with 😛

    Star Trek : Into the Darkness

  5. KeithAdams

    First Contact! The best continuation of a Trek episode since “The Wrath of Khan”!

  6. Drew S.

    November 2, 2016 at 12:18 pm

    Wrath of Khan, I suppose!

  7. Mike Miller

    November 2, 2016 at 12:27 pm

    My pick is The Wrath of Khan.

  8. MG

    November 2, 2016 at 12:37 pm

    Yeah, if I have to pick just one, it has to be Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. It’s always been special to me.

    I still like the first film Star Trek – The Movie (I enjoyed the connection to those early space probes).

  10. Matthew Jones

    Star Trek IV ! The Voyage Home 🙂

  11. scottfornwall

    The Wrath of Khan is the best!

    Wrath of Khan.

    Well, I’m a life-long fan of Star Trek! ALL TV series, ALL movies, ANYTHING Star Trek related! My favorite Star Trek movie is the first movie, ‘Star Trek: The Motion Picture’ ..because it was the first with the original cast from the first TV series. Gotta love how it all began!

  16. Jeffrey K Stier

    November 2, 2016 at 2:28 pm

    Overall, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is the best movie, per se. Good writing, directing, story, etc. However, Star Trek Beyond might be the most fun. I think I had a smile on my face the entire way through and I loved all the call backs to 50 years of Star Trek!

  17. Lerxst

    November 2, 2016 at 4:02 pm

    Generations. Awesome to have both legendary Captains in one movie. Beyond was fantastic though!

  18. Adam E Fairchild

    November 2, 2016 at 4:56 pm

    Star Trek: The Motion Picture; also the most underrated.

  19. Markus McLaughlin

    November 2, 2016 at 5:51 pm

    Definitely, Star Trek II, will always be my all time favorite! 😀

  20. Tony Troxell

    November 2, 2016 at 7:40 pm

    Choosing only one? While WoK is going to be a popular choice, I feel that First Contact edges it out just a bit for me. Then again, I got into Trek with TNG, so I feel that helps play a big part of it.

    Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. Christopher Plummer chews the scenery

  22. Reagan Colbert

    November 2, 2016 at 7:49 pm

    Hands down Star Trek IV, the Voyage Home. The very first Star Trek movie (actually Star Trek anything) I ever saw, and still my favorite. What made me fall in love with the show and especially the TOS characters.
    That being said, I love all the TOS movies, most of the TNG movies, and all of the JJ Abrams movies also. Trekkie for life 🙂
    Live Long and Prosper

    I really enjoyed the 2009 Star Trek. I dd not grow up with the original series. I thought it was a good introduction for me into the World of Star Trek. Thanks for the giveaway. Live Long and Prosper.

    Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

  25. Robert Karma

    November 2, 2016 at 9:16 pm

    A lot of it comes down to the time and place we saw a movie. One of the most seminal entertainment events in my life was seeing Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan in the theater. This was back in an era before the Internet and Social Media so I didn’t have a clue about the story. Needless to say, when Spock sacrificed himself to save the Enterprise, I wept like I had lost a family member. It doesn’t matter how great subsequent Star Trek films are because The Wrath of Khan will always be my favorite. Boldly Go!

  26. WackoJedi

    November 2, 2016 at 9:26 pm

    I believe the tribute For Leonard and Anton is my favorite because its fitting that such great talent deserves such a tribute and im sure Star Trek will always be there for them.

  27. Jake Tenenbaum

    November 2, 2016 at 10:05 pm

    The Motion Picture is my fave.

  28. THX

    November 2, 2016 at 10:06 pm

    Wrath of khan. First Star Trek I ever saw. 1982 in the theater!!!

  29. Anthony Lewis

    November 2, 2016 at 10:58 pm

    Mine is still STVI. Coming off the disaster of Final Frontier to bring back Nick Myer to deliver a fantastic final film to send off the original crew in fine form. I still wish the TNG crew had been able to get one just like it.

  30. NJW

    November 2, 2016 at 11:05 pm

    Star Trek: First Contact

  31. Chris Blau

    November 3, 2016 at 12:09 am

    Wrath of Khan will always be my favorite, but I enjoyed Beyond the most of the Kelvin universe entries.

  32. ChelseaJK

    For the TOS movies it’s a toss up between Undiscovered Country and Voyage Home. Undiscovered Country has a bit of everything, and I enjoy the Federation/political aspects of the film since our crew had been kinda doing their own thing for a while. Voyage Home is just so much fun though; it’s like my favorite comfort food.

  33. Jennifer W

    The Voyage Home

  34. Aldo Rodriguez

    November 3, 2016 at 8:55 am

    Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (Extended version – which gave a much better insight of many scenes like the news of Engineer’s Mate midshipman Peter Preston being Scotty’s nephew)!

  35. Lee Kennedy

    November 3, 2016 at 9:23 am

    ALL STAR TREK! as a true Star Trek fan surely there are no Favourites all are equally amazing! Any trek is good Trek. As true fans answer me this; If there is ‘any’ trek on TV do you skip by it or do you immediatly want to watch it?

    Do I choose a movie from the collection by choice…no, It is always a random pick. Each film/episode has its own unique magic.

    Long live Star Trek

    Toss up between Wrath of Khan and Voyage Home for different reasons.

  37. Heather S

    November 3, 2016 at 11:35 am

    The Voyage Home hands down 🙂

  38. James Scott

    November 3, 2016 at 1:55 pm

    It used to be Wrath of Khan but JJ Abrams won me over and now I’d say Into Darkness.

  39. Ron Theunissen

    November 3, 2016 at 8:27 pm

    Generations is still my favourite.

  40. Johnna Rhodus

    November 3, 2016 at 8:29 pm

    My favorite Star Trek movie is probably the first Star Trek(the original in this trilogy series w/Chris Pine as Captain Kirk) because I have never seen any of the movies.I watched Star Trek The Next Generation(tv show) growing up!

  41. David Keel

    November 4, 2016 at 11:11 am

    Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home is my favorite. It had a lot of humor and demonstrated the great chemistry the characters had amongst themselves.

  42. Jonathan Kirk

    November 4, 2016 at 4:50 pm

    My favorite Star Trek movie is Star Trek Generations. It is a good story to begin with, but it also does a good job tying the time line together (which is one of the reasons I like Star Trek). It also has Kirk dying not once, but twice! How can you beat that! The one of my least favorite characters dying twice!

  43. Sara Myers

    November 4, 2016 at 5:31 pm

    Star Trek XI was the first I ever saw, but it is still my absolute favorite. I live for troublemaker Kirk and sassy Spock. It’s become one of those movies that I can watch over and over and never get tired of.

  44. JD

    November 4, 2016 at 9:45 pm

    Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

  45. Chris Tolbertson

    November 5, 2016 at 12:13 pm

    Star Trek VI was not only an incredible film, but also the only one that I saw with my whole family. That is a pretty great memory.


      November 8, 2016 at 7:16 pm

      Congratulations, Chris! You’ve won Star Trek Beyond on Blu-ray! Please email me at info [at] TrekNews [dot] net.

    I love the film of “Star Trek: Into the Darkness”.

  47. Mighty Orbots

    November 5, 2016 at 5:06 pm

    Star Trek First Contact. Love TNG cast. Best movie for the group.

  48. Ketwolski

    November 5, 2016 at 6:03 pm

    I’m going to say it: Star Trek: Beyond

  49. John Herring

    November 5, 2016 at 9:59 pm

    Star Trek IV ! The Voyage Home 🙂 Colorful metaphors!

  50. ephenstephen

    November 6, 2016 at 9:52 am

    The Voyage Home has always been my fav. So different, incredible balance of humor and drama, no villain. Just a very unique film.

  51. Dan

    November 6, 2016 at 10:59 am

    First contact was my favorite. The movie brought me a sense of wonder as a kid and the borg are such awesome villains.

  52. Fabian

    November 6, 2016 at 3:02 pm

    Star Trek III: The Search for Spock

  53. Jeffrey M Oman

    November 6, 2016 at 6:23 pm

    If forced to choose one? First Contact. It’s hard to choose though. Very hard.

  54. Keith Homel

    November 6, 2016 at 6:50 pm

    First Contact – So much greatness in that movie!

  55. Dennis Koch

    November 6, 2016 at 8:01 pm

    That would have to Star Trek The Undiscovered Country.

  56. Mary Boltwood

    November 7, 2016 at 4:09 am

    I think first contact is my favorite movie but it’s so hard to choose
