Easily another in what's sure to be a long line of classic Rifftrax with the Star Trek crew both old and new.

Top notch riffing!  I especially enjoyed the techno-babble gag.  I gave it a 9/10!

  Probably my least-favorite Rifftrax so far.  This is the first time I was tempted to turn off the riffs and just watch the movie. Hoping for a return to greatness next time.

I think it's time for Mike, Kevin and Disembodio to hit the beach for a month and start fresh later.  This was not a quality Riff.  A 'rent payer' effort at best.  Sorry.  :(

I'm sad to say, this was to me the weakest of the thirteen Rifftrax I've watched so far. (I don't count "Plan Nine", as that was a pre-Rifftrax commentary and shouldn't be graded quite the same.)  Kevin's anti-Chekov rants got things off on the wrong foot for me, and the Trax never quite recovered (although it did have a few laugh-out-loud lines).  6/10, and maybe this mini-hiatus Mike is taking is for the best.  Perhaps he needs to recharge.

On the plus side, this one finally convinced me to start writing my own "Wrath of Khan" riff.  Thirty minutes in the books and proceeding nicely -- and just the right amount of Chekov-razzing. ;-)

The Only reason I didn't give it a Perfect 10, is because Bill wasn't part of the Riff like all 3 were in Star Trek 6

I found this the weakest one yet,I was literally falling asleep half way through.Although the source material was at fault here I think,for me all of the S.T. movies have been really boring.Unless it's something really bad like Glitter or Crossroads I don't enjoy them as much as fairly decent films like Fifth Element,LOTR etc.

I want more Bill!!

I give it a 5 - long stretches of unfunny, but I think that the funny is brought in spades towards the end.

A++

Great jokes, Star Trek is always a riffable franchise.

Finally got around to watching this one.

Wow, can't believe the negative responses, I gave it a 9, lots of good laughs.  A rare RiffTrax where I got almost all of the references to old shows and movies...  All the screwing around over Kirk's big death scene was hilarious.

7 from me.  funny, well worth the purchase, but not quite to the level of the other Trek riffs.
