New "Star Trek" Flick to Hit Theaters on Christmas (2008)

Pretty slow news week, so here's a really short one: Paramount's 11th "Star Trek" flick will hit theaters on Christmas Day 2008. As reported a few days back, J.J. Abrams will be directing.

That's really all there is to this story, so let's use this space to test out the argument that all the odd-numbered "Star Trek" movies stink ... using only the Tomatometer and opinions from you folks.

"Star Trek: The Motion Picture" -- 55% (Rotten)

"Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan" -- 96% (Fresh)

"Star Trek 3: The Search for Spock" -- 74% (Fresh)

"Star Trek 4: The Voyage Home" -- 89% (Fresh)

"Star Trek 5: The Final Frontier" -- 23% (Rotten)

"Star Trek 6: The Undiscovered Country" -- 79% (Fresh)

"Star Trek: Generations" -- 48% (Rotten)

"Star Trek: First Contact" -- 94% (Fresh)

"Star Trek: Insurrection" -- 61% (Fresh)

"Star Trek: Nemesis" -- 38% (Rotten)

OK, now you name the top three "Trek" flicks and your bottom three. Mine are easy:

Best: #2, #3, and #4 (with an honorable mention to #8)

Worst: #10, #9 and #5
