Vulcans and their comrades came out to power the sci-fi sequel Star Trek Into Darkness into the number one spot at the North American box office, however grosses were substantially below industry expectations across the board.

Three decades later, as we prepare to greet the twelfth Trek feature, your pals at Rotten Tomatoes thought now would be the perfect time to take a fond look back at all the Enterprise voyages that got us here ? from the beloved classics (The Wrath of Khan) to the ones that never should have made it off the holodeck (The Final Frontier).
