    They are skipping over Generations? And going to First Contact?

    So 1-6, skipping 7, going to 8?

    Why can't they skip #5 which was brutal to watch...

    These seem to be the original theatrical versions and not the director's cuts.

    I don't have the Blu-rays yet so I'm definitely recording them.

    I'll likely be recording them. :)

    And possibly watching them on MaxGo before then. :) :)

    Cheers,

    My guess is that they are focusing on TOS and since Generations is not a TOS movie they skipped it.

    That's why I said the first 7 Star Trek movies, to me TNG doesn't count either. yuck!

    The Blu-Ray releases are all theatrical versions, so it makes sense that the Cinemax showings are theatrical. Still waiting for the updated Blu-Rays, when and if that happens.

    I agree with Earl, V was a tough one. But 1-7 does include all the TOS cast, albeit Generations kinda was a crossover from TOS to TNG. First Contact was all TNG cast.

    Might have to record these all at work to geek everyone out LOL

    It won't.

    The Director's Cuts of TMP, Khan, and Undiscovered Country (1, 2, & 6), which were the only ones where there were any significant differences in the Director's Cut versions, were not HD. The additional scenes were no better than DVD quality.

    I'm recording these, too. I haven't bought the Blu-rays yet.

    My bet is that First Contact was included because it was the only one that gave The Wrath of Khan a run for its money as The Best Star Trek Movie Ever.

    First Contact, is when they go back in time... and are there when Earth Humans break warp for the first time.

    Then Nemisis and then the new Star Trek story line begins...

    Even with F. Murray Abraham in it, it's somewhat forgettable. Of course, with all of the makeup, the big stars are usually all but unrecognizable.

    Any movie that puts a zit on a Klingon deserves to be forgotten.

    Too bad they have to keep recycling story lines. Although the first time did give us a very young Teri Garr.
