StarTrek: First Contact Review

My favorite StarTrek spinoff is The Next Generation so this review will be a little biased. I believe that Jean Luc Picard is the best CO in any StarTrek. Do not fight me on this because I know that everyone has their preference I am just explaining myself before I give my review.

I have seen all of the StarTrek movies and this is the best one. Not only does it have amazing CG effects typical of the newer spinoffs but it has an excellent story-line. It manages to incorporate two of the most interesting parts of StarTrek into one great movie. We are all familiar with the actors that play the TNG crew and know that they always give great performances. Lt. Commander Data (Brent Spinner) does an amazing job with his android part.

The borg are attacking earth and the federation is trying to stop them unsuccessfully. When the situation is most desperate the Enterprise comes in and coordinates an attack to destroy the cube. It explodes but they eject a Borg sphere toward the earth and the Enterprise chases after it. The sphere then proceeds back in time with the Enterprise in its wake. They are taken back to the time when Zephryn Cochran preformed his first warp flight and first contact with and alien race was made. The Borg s intent was to sabotage this mission and then assimilate Earth. It is up to the crew of the Enterprise to stop them and save the human race.

Like most StarTrek movies there are some plot holes like the Borg having time travel and not using it to assimilate everything when ever they want. If you overlook these points the movie is great. The Borg collective is a fascinating idea and is very well used in TNG. The fact that a queen exists for the Borg makes a tremendous amount of sense if you look at the collective as a hive. Chaos would ensue if there was no controlling force. The history of StarTrek element was an added bonus that I enjoyed. This shows human race before and after the great change. It makes you think of the effect first contact had on the people and whether it would be similar to what might happen in RL.

This movie is the best StarTrek movie that exists today. It receives a biased 8/10 from me.
