In many ways, this movie is the forgotten step-child of the Trek movies. It does not get a lot of credit for being as good as it was. Most Trek fans prefer the sequel, The Wrath of Khan, and give this an unfavourable comparison. On it's own merits, it's a very good, if not exactly great, sci-fi movie, made in the grandest traditions of sci-fi.

About 13 years after the first serie started, they decided to finally make a feature length movie of this mythical TV-show. Honestly, I have never seen this show but since it is one of the longest running movie franchises ever made, I thought I should give it a try. First of all, I must say it was rather long and slow (it is actually the longest movie of the whole franchise) and there were no acti... read more

Description: A strange cloud descends upon Klingon vessels and eradicates them with an energy bolt. The Epsilon IX space station alerts the Federation, but they too are wiped out by the entity. The starship assigned to the case is, what else, the NCC-1701. That would be the registration number for the USS Enterprise, which has been rebuilt. Thus, ... (more)

"What it predicted: Bluetooth headsets, hyposprays, Universal Translator. Okay so Scotty’s not going to be beaming us up anytime soon, but the first Star Trek movie featured a remarkable number of ideas that have managed to make their way into reality."

The future kind of sucks. (307 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: A giant living spaceship makes it way to Earth, to "met it's maker", and "greet it". By greeting, I mean destroy everything in it's path, and accumulate knowledge about it's maker along the way. Year it takes place: 2217"

"@ Blu-ray A question for anyone who are unfortunate enough to stumble upon this list. Do I need to be familiar with the TV Show in order to understand anything in this film? My only experience with Star Trek is the J.J. Abrams films, which at least made sense. I didn't get anything this film was trying to do. I was left completely baffled. My brain just couldn't bother with it. But I could to a minor degree accept that I just didn't get it if it were somewhat entertaining. It's not. It looks p"

"17 - A movie that disappointed you the most I'm sure I'm not the only one that this particular film disappointed. After years of waiting for a return for Star Trek, this is what we got? There were some visually striking shots and Persis Khambatta looked gorgeous but that was it. From the uniforms onward, this movie was an abysmal disappointment."

20 From 79: My Favorite Films Of 1979 (20 movies items)

"Okay, maybe not the most exciting sci-fi film ever, and not even the best of the Trek franchise. But as someone who wasn't a fan of the TV show, for me it was kinda cool to see it updated on the silver screen with a blockbuster budget. And, for what it was, I did enjoy it. Besides, it did eventually lead up to the Wrath of Khan, Voyage Home &, of course, the awesome 2009 "reboot". "

Movie Reviews (part 10) (50 movies items)

"¨ The Ups: It made tons of money and kick-started the franchise we know today. It had excellent effects and it reunited the cast we loved from the original series. It has an intelligent approach. The Downs: Many people has misunderstood this adaptation of the "Star Trek" series as a continuation when it was an attempt to actually reboot it - with the same cast - and since the fun and fastpaced series didn't work out in the 60s director Robert Wise tried to make it realistic instead of just "
