This is a disappointing film, shirking promise in lieu of cheesy dialogue and rushed action sequences. The Borg make a dark and formidable opponent for the Star Trek universe, but they are under-used amid the general cheesiness of the Enterprise crew.

definitely the best of the Next Generation movies. just like wrath of khan, it ties into the history of the show. It's nice when they (the writers) take something that was mentioned previously in an episode and just go off with it. Also like Khan, it references Moby Dick. watching Deanna Troi get drunk has always been one of my favorite moments of this film.

My personal favorite out of all the Star Trek films. It has an excellent story, great action, great acting and lots of borg. It's never cheesy, never boring and it delivers. It remains to be seen if any Trek film can match it.

The best star trek movie. The borg rocks, and this one shows why.

"Star Trek: First Contact" by Yojimbo

The greatest nemesis of the federation, the Borg attempt to assimilate Earth in this hugely enjoyable addition to the Trek franchise. There are some great effects, and director Frakes had obviously done his homework; the space battle is spectacular (if a little brief), and he cleverly chooses to transform the sterile, neon-lit corridors of the Enterprise into the kind of gloomy, atmospheric locations that would not look out of place on the Nostromo. The Borg are rightful favourites from the series, a seriously creepy race of "bionic zombies" who can assimilate their enemies through touch and render their weapons useless. It's also nice how the characters are given shades of grey, notably Picards almost pathological hatred of them and Data's "seduction" at the hands of the coldly fascistic...

The Best Film of the Star Trek Franchise

Yep! This is it, if you want to know what I consider the best Star Trek film, look no further...

Negatives: Hmmmm....well, let me put it this way, there are many, many movies I would consider better than this, but if I were to make another countdown (and don't put it passed me) about the all-time greatest Science-Fiction movies, this would indeed make it, and it would be pretty high up there.

Positives: I had said the problem with Star Trek II was that it was very fun, but it did not have much substance, or intelligence behind it. First Contact, amazingly blends them both perfectly. Throughout the span of the film, we are confronted with all sorts of big psychological questions, such as "where is our species heading as far as culture and society?", "how easy is it for an individua...
