HitFix ranks the franchise in time for 'Star Trek Into Darkness'
8. "Star Trek V: The Final Frontier" (1989)
I can't believe any film ranked lower on this list than this one. If "Wrath of Khan" is a master's class in how to do "Trek" right, this is the polar opposite, an indulgent, smarmy, howlingly stupid movie that was almost enough to kill the franchise once and for all. Shatner and Nimoy may be equals in front of the camera, but behind the camera, Shatner seemed totally out of his depth. It's hard to know what moment in the movie counts as the worst, but the Nichelle Nichols nude fan dance may be the nadir of "Trek" in any form.
