My Top 10 Sci-Fi Movies: #9 – Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home

#9 – Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986)

Which of all the ‘Star Trek’ movies is the best? Most people will tell you its The Wrath of Kahn or First Contact. Or now the new J.J. Abrams version.

Not me though. The Voyage Home just has so much going for it, and so much replay value that it makes it my favourite Star Trek movie.

Time travel is probably one of the most overdone ideas in movies (and in the Star Trek franchise), but this one puts such a good-natured, funny and easy to watch spin on the idea that the idea seems fresh.

And watching Spock try to blend in in modern day San Francisco is one of the funniest things you’ll ever see.
