The last time the "Star Trek" TV series was adapted into a motion picture it was in 1979's rather obviously titled "Star Trek: The Motion Picture". Since that notoriously over-long slog through late-70s space sludge, "Trek" has seen its share of onscreen hits ("Khaaan!") and misses (all the odd numbered ones) before finally petering out with 2002's tenth entry "Star Trek: Nemesis". After that not-as-bad-as-you-remember-it film, the "Trek" franchise wisely stayed dormant, letting anticipation build for the inevitable franchise reboot.
