Every Star Trek Movie Ranked | Movies
The film that assured star trekthe future. A major consolidation and redesign as a result The filmit’s thrilling, action-packed and emotionally charged. The film really only had a mystery, but Khan’s Wrath gives the Enterprise team a truly believable – even frightening – adversary in Ricardo Montalban’s Wronged Superhuman, and there’s no better illustration of the true high stakes in this film than one of the main actors having to die: the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. It’s a direct, jaw-dropping brawl across the galaxy, weaving lore from the depths star trek cuts but never alienates a non-expert audience (it’s a sequel to a Season 2 episode, but you don’t really need to have seen ‘Space Seed’ to be immediately on board). There are new crew members – notably Kirstie Alley’s Vulcan Saavik – but Khan’s Wrath proves that legacy gamers are far from done, even if the film kindly acknowledges their elongated teeth (and failing eyesight). And there is, of course, this Moment Shatner (“KHAAAAAAAAN!”), reminding us that while there are other space adventure franchises, some things are unique and gloriously Trek. Of all the movies we’ve come across in our star trek trips, it was the most… human.
