This past weekend, over a thousand Star Trek fans dressed in their most creative Star Trek costumes at Star Trek Las Vegas. And just like last year, the sheer variety of characters and cool concepts was overwhelming. Jordan Hoffman was there, and he took some stunning cosplay photos.

Hoffman also moderated a panel ranking all the Star Trek movies from best to worst at the convention, and you might be shocked by how the hardcore Trek fans voted:



1 - Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
2 - Star Trek: First Contact
3 - Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
4 - Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
5 - Star Trek III: The Search For Spock
6 - Star Trek (2009)
7 - Galaxy Quest (an unorthodox pick, but endorsed in person by Denise and Mike Okuda)
8 - Star Trek: Generations
9 - Star Trek: The Motion Picture
10 - Star Trek: Nemesis
11 - Star Trek: Insurrection
12 - Star Trek V: The Final Frontier
13 - Star Trek Into Darkness

Yes, I am personally astonished that Star Trek IV only came in fourth. I would have expected it to be second, or third at the very least. It just shows that comedy gets no respect. Also, if you're including Galaxy Quest as a Trek movie, it probably deserves to go higher than #7.
