Both William Shatner and our resident Star Trek expert Reed Farrington will be happy to hear that Star Trek V: The Final Frontier is no longer considered the worst Star Trek movie of all time. At least, not according to the hardcore Trek fans in attendance at the latest Star Trek convention in Las Vegas. One of the panels at this year’s con involved a room full of fans ranking all of the Star Trek movies in order, and the movie that ended up at the very bottom of the list was also the franchise’s most recent entry: J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness.
Devin from Badass Digest offers up the full list that the fans arrived at along with some explanation for each, and although the results were gleaned from a rather small sample size and a decidedly unscientific method, the list is still somewhat fascinating. Perhaps the most surprising part of the whole thing is that Galaxy Quest is apparently considered to be an official Star Trek film and somehow it ended up at #7. WTF? Still, I had no idea that Star Trek Into Darkness was so despised by fans, although it largely seems to be because of the “reboot” factor. Check out the full rankings after the jump and let us know what you think.
