Star Trek: The Motion Picture
Star Trek: The Motion Picture was the first Star Trek feature film and helped revitalize the Trek franchise.
Now promoted to Admiral, Kirk returns to the drydocked Enterprise and takes command for a mission to intercept a strange cloud that has been destroying Federation and Klingon ships, and is on a direct course for Earth.
Star Trek: TMP was a financial success, thus insuring the continuation of Trek as a franchise, and has some rather good special effects. That said, the film itself is not all that fondly remembered as it moves very slowly. Nonetheless, if nothing else it is not considered as bad as some later installments.
