13. The Final Frontier (1989)
I was six when my Star Trek fandom took root and for my birthday, among the toys, I was given a VHS copy of the fifth movie of the franchise. This was my first experience of the original series on the big screen. It’s a surprise my fandom didn’t stop on that day, though, as I watched a lethargic and tired cast potter about the cosmos looking for God and debating the merits of life, death and campfire songs around a fire.
A movie that nearly killed off The Original Series movie run could have done the same for me!
