Star Trek Into Darkness named 'worst Star Trek film'

Of all the groups of sci-fi fans, you don't mess with the Trekkies...

So JJ Abrams had better watch his step, as fans have branded his latest voyage into the stars as the worst 'Star Trek' movie ever made. Doesn't bode well for Star Wars, does it?

The decision was handed down at the 'Star Trek 2013' convention, which took place in Las Vegas, with attendees being asked to rank the movies in order.

'Star Trek Into Darkness' was deemed the worst of the 12 films that have been made in the franchise, and was even booed at its mere mention.

Though it was roundly enjoyed by the general public – it's made over $450 million (£291 million) around the world – the hardcore fans took issue with the movie.

Devin Faraci from the Badass Digest website was witness to the low placing of 'Into Darkness', and said: “'Star Trek Into Darkness' was met with boos when it was mentioned, and one guy took the mic to say these reboots shouldn't even be considered for a list of 'Star Trek' movies.”

The best film in the series was named as 'Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan', followed by the 'Next Generation' movie 'Star Trek: First Contact'.

The 1999 parody movie 'Galaxy Quest' was also welcomed into the list, being named the seventh best 'Star Trek' film, despite not really being a 'Star Trek' film.

Elsewhere, the roundly fan-hated 'Star Trek V: The Final Frontier' was ranked one up from 'Into Darkness' as the 12th worst.

But JJ Abrams may take some solace from the fact that his 2009 reboot 'Star Trek' was given a more respectable sixth place.

Here's the rankings in full:

13. 'Star Trek Into Darkness'
12. 'Star Trek V: The Final Frontier'
11. 'Star Trek Insurrection'
10. 'Star Trek Nemesis'
9. 'Star Trek: The Motion Picture'
8. 'Star Trek Generations'
7. 'Galaxy Quest'
6. 'Star Trek'
5. 'Star Trek: The Search For Spock'
4. 'Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home'
3. 'Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country'
2. 'Star Trek: First Contact'
1. 'Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan'

Perhaps JJ Abrams' tinkering with classic 'Star Trek' villains the Klingons was part of the problem. When Yahoo! Movies interviewed him back in May he explained why they got rebooted. See below.
