Star Trek: First Contact
Resistance is futile.
The Borg, a relentless race of cyborgs, are on a direct course for Earth. Violating orders to stay away from the battle, Captain Picard and the crew of the newly-commissioned USS Enterprise E pursue the Borg back in time to prevent the invaders from changing Federation history and assimilating the galaxy.
They invade our space and we fall back. They assimilate entire worlds and we fall back. Not again. The line must be drawn here!
This is much more like it. After directing several episodes of The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and Voyager, Jonathan Frakes makes his feature film directing debut for a franchise that he'd been working on for almost a decade. He knew the characters, he knew how to work with a budget constraint and hopefully he knew what made Star Trek work.
The script was written by long time Next Generation writers Brannon Braga and Ronald D. Moore. Moore of course would go on to re-image Battlestar Galactica with great success. Having written some of the…
I grew up on Star Trek (minus TOS), watching it religiously for years on BBC2, but now can only vividly remember chunks of each and every series. First Contact (along with Nemesis) is one of those chunks. It terrified me before, I was literally too afraid to watch parts of it. "Don't Let Them Touch You!" still gives me nightmares.
That said, I hadn't seen it in years. Super excited to get back into Trek and watch it with my now (mostly) grown mind, and make sure I'd seen all the episodes, I couldn't resist just skipping to First Contact first because I had liked it so much when I was little, and was eager to see how well it…
awww I remember seeing this for the first time!
My dad came and pulled me out of school telling the front office I had a dentist appointment..once we left the school he was like "not really we are going to see a movie! " aww it was great
he would do this for all the films that came out while I was in school :)
I remember this just being amazing to me with the borg and the main borg lady just being a head and spine ...
I remember seeing this in theaters at about eleven years of age. It was a hell of a lot darker than I had come to expect from your typical Next Generation premise. At the time, the Borg scared me to death, and I was genuinely frightened at moments. Today, seventeen years later, First Contact doesn't serve to scare me, but the visuals hold up pretty well, and it is a truly enjoyable watch.
My father picked up the Next Generation Blu ray pack, so I will likely go through all of them in the coming weeks; but there was something about Picard (Patrick Stewart) in this film that really stands out. His performance is really something to behold, as he…
The best Star Trek movie.
The nasty Borg travel back in time to prevent humanity's "first contact" with the Vulcans, and only Picard and the crew of the Enterprise can stop them.
Brilliant story, humour, history and great action.
The best Next Gen movie yet. Perfectly combines the wonder and joy of watching an episode of Next Gen, while adding solid doses of action and horror. The Borg are such a terrifying villain and Patrick Stewart offers a multilayered version of Picard; prioritising his crew, but slowly becomes blinded by his hate of the Borg. Fantastic Trek offering.
It's not really my favorite Star Trek film, but it's the best of the Next Generation films. It's darker story is well-handled with a nice character arc for Picard.
The "Next Generation" crew must travel back in time in order to stop the Borg race from taking over the planet, and to make sure that the first alien contact occurs (ensuring the future of mankind).
It's a bit clunky at times, but there are moments that work - especially when it comes to the Borg Queen. She is seductive and curious, but extremely sinister, and her appearance in this film is the main reason why the film works.
Overall, it's not a great movie, but for fans of the series, it is a decent outing, even if it does feel a little forced.
Man that Borg queen is sexy. Putting the cap on my Borg Experience, I finished the whole thing off with the Borg movie that really feels like a TV show with curse words, but at least doesn't have a lot of the stupid stuff the other movies have. Very entertaining and pointless.
As a big Trek fan, I'm torn on First Contact. On one hand, its an enjoyable action film. The Borg are easily the most memorable TNG villains and, for the most part, make for good monsters in this movie. On the other hand, the introduction of a Borg Queen kind of contradicts their nature as a collective. It doesn't make a lot of sense for her to even exist. The Borg are also considerably dumber than usual, as there are many obvious ways for their time travel plot to be successful. Sure, the movie doesn't ruin them to the extent that Voyager did, but you would think that they would be smart enough to launch their time travel sphere where…
Before the 2009 J.J. Abrams remake, this film used to be my favourite Star Trek Film.
TNG Crew, Borgs, Time Travel, funny one-liners and space action.
Do we need anything else in an Star Trek Film?
Najbolji film u franšizi.
Surprisingly enjoyable. Though I wish it wasn't a time travel movie.
Entertaining, with decent-ish action scenes (for Star Trek), but it kind of ruins the concept of the Borg.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
