First off, I liked all the movies, but if I had to choose my top three I would go with:
- Star Trek (2009)
- Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991)
- Star Trek VIII: First Contact (1996)
I grew up watching The Next Generation (1987–1994), as I finished 12th grade in 1992. Deep Space Nine (1993–1999) got me through university and Voyager (1995–2001) took me into my adult life. So I’ve always been more of a Next Generation Trekkie. I haven’t seen Enterprise (2001–2005) yet, but I have plans to “acquire” it soon. I recently re-watched Voyager and I’m busy watching The Original Series, which is pretty cool as I only remember the characters from the movies they made in the eighties.
Probably explains why I enjoyed the movies with the Next Generation cast more (I liked Nemesis, also, and it would make my top 3 except I was very unhappy that Data died in that one.), although the older movies were cool, too. The movie I enjoyed the least was Generations.
My favourite series is without a doubt Voyager. Spock was the Vulcan standard, but Tuvok took it to a new level. Janeway was was an awesome Captain, although she wasn’t quite as good as Jean Luc IMVHO. But with crew members like Seven of Nine, Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix Zero-One, The Doctor, Commander Chakotay and B’Elanna Torres the series was just that bit ahead of The Next Generation.
For the true fan who wants to tie up all the Borg loose ends, from Seven of Nine, Captain Janeway, the disappearance of the Starship Columbia, where did the Borg come from and Jean Luc’s part in all of it, I recommend the Star Trek Destiny trilogy by David Mack.
