    And yeah, I liked The Search For Spock. Christopher Lloyd as a Klingon, man.

    Remove 3 from that list. It's pretty much widely agreed upon as the worst one ever.

    Oh, I don't know if I know the answer to that. I think it's across the bay in Alameda.

    no The Final Frontier is way way worse than Search for Spock

    Search for Spock is not very good but it's not excruciatingly stupid in the way Final Frontier is

    Final Frontier is really, really stupid. But I gotta admit, the first time I watched it I got swept up in the epic feel it was going for.

    I remember thinking "Woah. Really? This is what they're doing? This is what this is? What the hell is going to happen when they get there and realise it's a load of nonsense?"

    Then you get to the end and realise: nothing.

    Nemesis is an interesting experiment in the fact that they essentially remade Wrath of Kahn and turned it super boring

    Reaction quotes from Star Trek actors
    • I had originally not wanted to see Galaxy Quest because I heard that it was making fun of Star Trek and then Jonathan Frakes rang me up and said "You must not miss this movie! See it on a Saturday night in a full theatre". And I did and of course I found it was brilliant. Brilliant. No one laughed louder or longer in the cinema than I did, but the idea that the ship was saved and all of our heroes in that movie were saved simply by the fact that there were fans who did understand the scientific principles on which the ship worked was absolutely wonderful. And it was both funny and also touching in that it paid tribute to the dedication of these fans. — Sir Patrick Stewart
    • I've had flashbacks of Galaxy Quest at the many conventions I've gone to since the movie came out. I thought it was an absolute laugh-a-minute. — Tim Russ
    • I thought it was very funny, and I thought the audience that they portrayed was totally real, but the actors that they were pretending to be were totally unrecognizable. Certainly I don't know what Tim Allen was doing. He seemed to be the head of a group of actors and for the life of me I was trying to understand who he was imitating. The only one I recognized was the girl playing Nichelle Nichols. — William Shatner
    • Yes, I have seen Galaxy Quest and no, it's not really like that. — Casey Biggs (About the film's portrayal of the fandom.)
    • I loved Galaxy Quest. I thought it was brilliant satire, not only of Trek, but of fandom in general. The only thing I wish they had done was cast me in it, and have me play a freaky fanboy who keeps screaming at the actor who played "the kid" about how awful it was that there was a kid on the spaceship. Alas. — Wil Wheaton
    • I think it's a chillingly realistic documentary [laughs]. The details in it, I recognized every one of them. It is a powerful piece of documentary filmmaking. And I do believe that when we get kidnapped by aliens, it's going to be the genuine, true Star Trek fans who will save the day. ... I was rolling in the aisles. And [star] Tim Allen had that Shatner-esque swagger down pat. And I roared when the shirt came off, and [co-star] Sigourney [Weaver] rolls her eyes and says, 'There goes that shirt again.' ... How often did we hear that on the set? [Laughs.] - George Takei

    just this rotating cast of fuckups

    they kept dying or fucking up the warp drive to the point where Picard was like, who's the most useless guy on the bridge? Geordi? Alright, let's send him down there.
