The two most stupid moments in Star Trek History:

1. Giving a man who hates Star Trek the opportunity to direct a Star Trek movie.

2. CBS asking the people who make Star Trek: Phase II not to film "He Walked Among Us" after letting them film other episodes based on scripts that were rejected or canceled.

Fair point. But the 'beaming through raised shields' thing cropped up in a TOS ep. I only saw it recently (been watching the sets at 2-3 eps per night), but I can't remember which one it was off the top of my head.
Then again it was good ol' Jim Kirk, and apparently he was capable of anything.

Anything. That includes winning the No-Win Scenario.

In 'Relics', Geordie and Scotty beam through the Jenolan's sheild while it's being used to prop open the big door, allowing the Enterprise to escape.

Do not diss the greatness that was "Conspiracy"!

It actually was a pretty cool episode. It's unfortuante that the producers decided to rework the antagonists into the Borg and dropped that race entirely.
HAIL HYDRA!

Scottie is king though, there is nothing he cannot do.

You can beam through a shield if you can match the frequency of the shield harmonic. That doesn't work in combat because the shield harmonics get thrown off by weapons fire.

I have to disagree, ok First Contact is easily the best Trek film but the other TNG films are also good in their own way, in my opinion. Generations is great, the only thing that's any good and has Kirk in it and it kills him twice , Insurrection does feel somewhat like a TNG TV movie, but the TNG 2-parters are fairly enjoyable. Nemesis should have had Sela and not that random Picard clone but I like real (ridged) Romulans so I can let it slide. A D'deridex would also have been nice too but hey.

Also, while I'm here, Voyager is my 2nd favourite Trek series after DS9.

I think it's sad there's only 4 even halfway decent Trek films out of 11.
