Let's analyse the other Trek films first. Star Trek, the Motion Picture: Slow, boring and tedious. Star Trek II, The Wrath Of Khan: Good but not perfect. Star Trek III, the Search For Spock: Silly. Star Trek IV, The Voyager Home: good. Star Trek V, the Final Frontier: Silly again. Star Trek VI, the Undiscovered country: great. Star Trek VII, Generations: silly. Does anyone notice a pattern? Even number= good film. This is fully true with First Contact. Personally, I loved every minute of this film. Firstly, it has a fantastic score. Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes et al all do well. Brent Spiner, my favourite character, is outstanding. And the wonderful Borg Queen is introduced. The Borg are the most threatening bad-guys we've yet seen in Star trek. Hell, aside from the slightly silly Zefram Cochrane, this is perfect! The Enterprise E is a wonderful ship, much more interesting than the previous one. I'm not too big a fan of the militaristic new uniforms, but they're quite nice. The plot for the film is a little predictable, but I think it's great! And personally, I think the people who think that William Shatner should return should have their head examined. With all due respect, the guy is getting on a little. If you've seen the Simpsons "Star Trek XII: So Very Tired" sketch, you'll see what I mean. First Contact is my favourite Star Trek film, and is far bette than the next one, Insurrection. I can think of no major problems, so I'll give it five stars and two thumbs up!
