What do you need to know to watch the Star Trek movies?
I am thinking about buying Star Trek movies 1-6 on blu-ray. I have never seen any episodes of the show but I saw the new 2009 movie and I enjoyed it. Do you need to watch the show to understand the movies?
You have to understand that it is thinking person’s sci-fi. Quite a few episodes of the show can go past without there being any fighting at all. This obviously isn’t true of the movies because no-one would watch them, but it is mostly about the moral/philosophical message behind the films/show rather than the action.
You probably do need to watch about 5 episodes at least of the original series and the Next Generation to properly appreciate the movies, you can see them for free on Youtube.
The whole idea behind the show is that the United Federation of Planets is an intergalactic alliance of planets (the biggest being Eath and Vulcan) who are committed to peaceful expansion and exploration of space. They live in a utopian society where money, poverty and illness are almost non-existant. The shows deal with the voyages of Federation ships as they explore the galaxy and how their own values come into conflict with the races that they encounter and the other powers in the galaxy (such as the Klingon Empire, Romulan star empire, Ferenghi etc.).
My favourite of the movies is Star Trek: First contact
How come there is no religion in the Star Trek movies?
The Star Trek movies take place a couple hundred centuries in the future, the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th centuries. There seems to be some kind of utopia in this future, but there is no religion at all it seems like. Why is that?
There was one TV episode of the original Star Trek that mentioned the Christmas story. I think Star Trek tries to portray this kind of Utopian world created by technology and science. It is kind of a socialist society where people agree to work for the good of the whole. Not my idea of utopia but maybe someone else’s. Of course this fable has inspired many ‘trekkies’ who long for this kind of technological Utopia. However, wisdom tells us that a perfect utopian can never exist if man is the only source to get us there, since man himself is flawed. How could something so flawed create perfection? I think perfection could only be achieved through the one who is perfect, namely Jesus Christ.

Can I watch the Star Trek movies before finishing TOS?
I just got into Star Trek a week or so ago and have so far watched the first 16 episodes of TOS. There’s a Star Trek movie marathon coming on TV tomorrow (the original 6 movies) should I watch it? or will they be confusing and/or spoilery if I watch them before completing TOS?
The only TOS episodes you need to watch to completely appreciate the movies are “The Cage”, “Where No Man Has Gone Before”, “City on the Edge of Forever”, ‘Tomorrow is Yesterday”, “Space Seed”, “Metamorphosis”, Balance of Terror”, “Amok Time”, “Errand of Mercy”, “Journey to Babel”, “Day of the Dove” and “Trouble with Tribbles”. 12 episodes. That’s it. 12 TOS episodes to understand the soon-to-be 12 movies.
Throw in “Mirror, Mirror”, “Piece of the Action”, and “Assignment: Earth” for their sheer entertainment value, at that brings the number to 15, but you can watch those episodes after the movies and be fine.
Is anyone else tired of all the time travel in recent star trek movies/tv series?
Have you noticed how the series finales of both the next generation and voyager had to do with time travel? And at least 3 star trek movies also have time travel in them. They keep going back and changing things. I’m a big fan of star trek but all the time travel is getting on my nerves.
They have to open holes so they can continue the series
do you want them to keep going for prequels but yet it still is new
