    I think I'm split between:
    The Motion Picture - best premise
    The Wrath of Khan - darkest, and most exciting
    The Voyage Home - funnest instalment
    First Contact - best narrative, best execution
    I can't pick out my favourite between them - they're all great! What's funny is: I can't stand to watch any of the TV series. But I love the movies! Isn't that strange!

    I think ST VI is my favourite but ST II comes a close second. First Contact has some great scenes but loses points for a Borg Queen [​IMG] [​IMG]

    What JohanK said!
    ------------------
    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.
    -- Charles Frazier, Cold Mountain

    Khan, Contact and Undiscovered Country in no particular order.
    When it comes to the opening music, probably First Contact. Absolutely gorgeous piece.

    Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
    When it comes to loving and living with Trek, it pays not to get caught up too much in pondering the scientific accuracy of the stories--or else, all the battle action in the nebula will leave ya howling.
    After Khan, I like Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, and--don't laugh--Star Trek Generations.

    I like all except #5, but the first is special for me. I think it is because it has that leisurely pace - takes its time and lets you really FEEL those space scenes. Goldsmith's music and the the lengthly fly-bys, etc. have an etheral quality to them missing from all sequels, and from most other space-based films.

    My ranking:
    1) The Wrath of Khan
    2) First Contact
    3) The Undiscovered Country
    4) The Voyage Home
    5) The Motion Picture
    I have yet to see the other films and probably won't do so until the SE DVDs come out.

    #1 Wrath of Khan (beats em all by a mile)
    #2 Undiscovered Country - Scooby Doo ending kinda ruins this one for me.
    #3 First Contact - starts off with a bang then gets mired down in the usual mundane time-travel plot. Its also too hokey at times. Very overrated IMHO.
    #4 Voyage Home - Good premise and pretty good movie for the time it was released. This one has not aged well at all.
    #5 The Motion Picture - On the plus side this is what Star Trek should be - PURE SCI-FI. On the minus - It's just so boring at times. I do have high hopes with the new DC though.
    #6 Search For Spock - Some great moments and also some very lame moments. Some of the acting performances are downright embarrassing.

    Id have to say Wrath of Khan followed VERY closely by ST3 The Search For Spock. I dont understand people dislike of this film - Its great in showing how much the characters care about each other and the destruction of the Enterprise is one of my favorite scenes ever put on film.

    I agree JonZ. To me II, III & IV are one long movie.
