Best Scene In Each Movie

What is your favorite scene from each movie.

Please don't take this as an opportunity to b!tch, say something sarcastic or gripe about which movies you didn't like (resist the urge). Just simply list ONE scene from each Star Trek film that was your favorite.

Star Trek: The Motion Picture- The Klingons battle V'Ger...what a fantastic opening scene to this epic. It grabs you from the very beginning with the imagery, the music, and the great FX.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan- The Reliant sneak attack on the Enterprise. It was gut-wrenching to see the Enterprise get carved open by the Reliant's phasers...and the sense of danger and tension was very real.

Star Trek III: The Search for Spock- Stealing the Enterprise from spacedock. At the time, the "crew as pirates" idea was very unique and very cool for Star Trek. This scene had the perfect mix of tension, fun, humor, music, and special FX.

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home- Revealing the Enterprise-A. I remember how stressed-out I was that the Enterprise was going to be replaced by the Excelsior. I was so happy to see the new Constitution-class Enterprise-A and Kirk's declaration "my friends, we've come home."

Star Trek V: The Final Frontier- Secret Pains / Approaching the Barrier. As much as this is a flawed film, this is one of my favorite sequences in all the Trek films. The character stuff in the observation lounge as Sybok attempts to break the "big three" down is great...and Kirk's declaration of "I NEED MY PAIN" really is a defining moment for that character.

Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country- Assasination of Gorkon. This scene was very tense and gripping when I first saw this film. It had a true sense of something historically significant taking place, and the mystery of WHO was responsible for Gorkon's murder was on. The "zero gee" assassination was a cool Trek first.

Star Trek Generations- Crash landing the Saucer Section. This scene still looks great to this day. No CGI...just awesome FX work and great action / tension. I really wanted to talk about Kirk and Picard talking in Idaho on their horses...but this really edged it out.

Star Trek: First Contact- Lilly confronts Picard. In a film filled with action, tension, and great special effects sequences...a simple actor vs. actress scene absolutely takes the cake. This is my favorite work of Patrick Stewart's, and it's a well-written, riviting scene. Alfre Woodard is a worthy "opponent" for Stewart.

Star Trek: Insurrection- Geordi regains his vision. This is my least-favorite Trek movie...but this was a beautiful and moving scene that finally gave LeVar Burton something interesting to do as an actor. You could really feel for LaForge here...and it's a great moment between him and Picard. Simple dialogue, not too sappy, and well acted.

Star Trek: Nemesis- Picard prepares the Enterprise for Battle. For some reason, I love the tension and drama of Picard telling the crew "all other concerns are secondary...I know you understand," and then watching the crew prepare for battle as Picard gives what may be his last log entry. A well-structured and dramatic little sequence that was the prefect preface for the battle that followed.

Star Trek (2009)- The Kelvin attack. This is one of the greatest scenes in all of Star Trek. The crew of the Kelvin is only on screen for 7 or 8 minutes, but the are immediately identifiable. The action and tension of the Narada overwhelming the Kelvin is very exciting, and the sacrifice that leads to James Kirk's birth is definitely a tear-jerker.


What say you?

TMP - "As much as you wanted the Enterprise. I want THIS!"
- That's love!

TWoK - "I've done far worse than kill you. I've hurt you.
And I wish to go on ... hurting you."
- Now, that's hate!

TSFS - This happens to be my favorite movie.
So hard to choose. Wow ... I guess when Kruge
kills his beautiful lover for knowing too much.
Just a great intro to one of the better Klingons.

TVH - The "sinking" of the Saratoga scene.

TFF - "Well, I'll call Valhalla and have them reserve a room for you."
Bones responds to Kirk's self-prophesy.

TUC - "Let them die, you said. Did I misinterpret you?"
Kim Katrall can act! And how dare Nimoy destroy her photos
on the bridge wearing nothing but her "ears" ... I still cry.

GEN - when we meet Sulu's daughter. She made an impression.

FC - Drunk Troi. Hummina! Hummina!

INS - "What I need, I can't get from Doctor Crusher ..."
- Frakes, you GO boy!

NEM - "... if you EVER touch me again ... I'll kill you."
Ahhh, Shinzon. Hell hath no fury, you inexperienced clone!

ST09 - Wynona Rider! She still looks great! Even now ...
She left an impact on the movie and I loved her in HEATHERS!

I love the scene in The Undiscovered Country where they bring in Crewman Dax because the magnetic shoes were found in his locker.  Chekov goes starts talking about Cinderella and "if the shoe fits, wear it!"  and everyone says, "Mr. Chekov!" and he looks down at Dax's feet and realizes that they could not possible fit in those shoes because his feet are totally screwed up.  I just thought this scene was very funny and endearing. Probably my favorite scene in the movie!

In space, no one can hear you scream...
