When it ended.

They were all great.

However, I didn't like any of the films.

If  the enhancements are somewhat like this, they would be fairly subtle and not bad, but here, the Constellation still looks like its twisting on a string in the first encounter...

The correct answer is Star Trek V.

And it's not "jump the shark", but rather "jump the Sybok".  Some Terran ears don't hear that phrase right.  There's another popular Vulcan saying that Terrans manage to corrupt into "Only Nixon could go to China", for equally illogical reasons.
