Welcome to Odd Culture’s Star Trek Movies List.
Here, Bill takes a look at all the Star Trek movies, starting with The Motion Picture (1979). Gene Roddenberry created the original series in 1966 with the pilot “The Cage.” The series was canceled after only 3 seasons, but syndication led to enormous popularity. After the success of Star Wars, Paramount went ahead with a movie franchise. The television adventures of the 24th century Federation continued with Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise. The movie universe was rebooted with 2009′s Star Trek. Trek has become a cult phenomenon, with a lot of the series’ phrases and technology becoming part of our common lingo.
