6. The Voyage Home (1986)
A hug in a mug movie that is perfect when you’re feeling sad or glad. The crew travel back to the ‘primitive’ age of the 1980s to hunt down a pair of whales they need to bring back to the future, in order talk to some random probe. Does that sound daft? Of course it does!
Yet it remains one of the most enjoyable movies in the franchise, and as the Trek movies during the Next Generation era turn to violence and action movie shlock to tell a story, this shows Trek can be at its most inclusive and enjoyable to audiences when it takes risks.
