They really don't need to show 4 and 5.

They need to show 1, 2, 6 and Generations.

The two best Star Trek movies they aren't even showing!

Let's all forget about Generations, they NEVER need to show that movie again.

I always thought Generations, First Contact and Nemesis were great movies and in that order. I don't even count Insurrection as it just sucked over all. The Wrath of Khan is the best and only ST: TOS movie I can stand to watch.

I don't think Spike has the rights to any of the movies past Final Frontier or Undiscovered Country, I'm not sure which.

They only recently got "The Undiscovered Country" away from Sci-Fi Channel. Sci-Fi still has Generations. I know TNT has "Insurrection".

First Contact is played on HBO every now and then, and I have no idea regarding Nemesis.

STARZ or ENCORE! has it. One of them. I always catch it on there.

Generations is great fan-fodder, but as a film its fairly lame. Same with Insurrection -- perhaps it would have bee a decent episode of ST:TNG, but not really feature worthy.
