Star Trek Best Trek

Star Trek films

The characters introduced by The Original Series and The Next Generation each had their stories expanded by a number of films. Both had direct continuations with The Original Series receiving six films and The Next Generation receiving four films.

Additionally, The Original Series had a short-lived reboot of three films set in an alternate timeline, featuring largely the same main characters but played by younger actors.

While the films are overall uneven, several are excellent and absolutely worth seeking out. Also, because a film is a more significant cultural event than an individual episode of a show, some of the most significant events of the Star Trek universe take place in these films and they have a tendency to affect and be referenced by later shows.

This guide also includes Galaxy Quest because it’s basically a Star Trek movie and is quite enjoyable.
