Let this thing DIE!

Paramount is breathing life into its “Star Trek” franchise by setting “Mission: Impossible III” helmer J.J. Abrams to produce and direct the 11th “Trek” feature, aiming for a 2008 release.

Variety.com — Trekkies have a new leader

Oh please … will they quit already. They’ve beaten this franchise to death … let it go.

It’s clear the people who are in charge of the Trek movies just don’t know how to do a good story.

Let’s see how it stacks up …

  • The Motion Picture — Boooorrrrriiinnngggg
  • Star Trek: The Wrath of Kahn — Probably the best of the lot … action, adventure, angst, and a great villain.
  • The Search for Spock — Not bad … but not great
  • The Voyage Home — Pretty good. Added a humorous twist
  • The Final Frontier — Lame.
  • The Undiscovered Country — Stupid.
  • Generations — So so … reasonable crossover. At least Kirk died. I kind of consider this the start of a new series of movies.
  • First Contact — Not bad. Good action, good villain, good resolution.
  • Insurrection — Fair to middling. Would have been better suited as a mini-series or 3-4 part regular series episode.
  • Nemesis — Dumb.
