1st Star Trek Beyond
2016 Perfect 83 Points
Bestest. Star Trek. Ever.

Star Trek Beyond never loses touch with all that made Star Trek great from its earliest incarnation, yet uses 2016 movie magic to create an Enterprise and assorted 23rd century tech-gear better than ever before.

Plus it plays the iconic opening notes of the all-time-great "Theme from Star Trek":https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theme_from_Star_Trek early on, and then the full theme late in this absolutely stellar episode.

Best. Star Trek. Ever.

Big Fun

An old friend made new, J.J. Abrams' Star Trek deserves Gene Roddenberry's blessing from the deep space hereafter. Cultural fountainhead for four decades now, Roddenberry's creation bequeathed into the zeitgeist green-skinned alien hotties, "Phasers on stun," "Beam me up Scotty," "Live long and prosper," the enlightened military force of Starfleet and its legendary flagship the USS Enterprise. Most of these touchstones get fresh visits in the new movie.

More popcorn than pop culture, this new incarnation works for newbies and Trekkies alike. Credit this to Roddenberry…
