Product Description

Amazon.ca

The continuing excellence of the Star Trek feature-film special editions continues with the best Next Generation film, First Contact. As with Generations, veteran Trek writers Brannon Braga and Ronald D. Moore provide an excellent commentary track providing insight in the film and candid comments about what they feel didn't quite work out as expected. Less effective is director-actor Jonathan Frakes's commentary. He has a great time watching the film and offers occasional good information (like the pain of acting in the Jefferies tube), but might have benefited from a second voice to keep him focused.

In addition to the usual documentaries (lots of praise for first-time director Frakes) and text commentary, the more enjoyable features cover aspects of Star Trek across the different series--for example, showing the first appearance of Zefram Cochrane on the original series--and a three-part feature on the Borg. (Unfortunately, a closing pitch for the amusement-park attraction makes it seem like a commercial.) There are also some spotlights on the Borg queen, including a look at the effects that created her striking first appearance. --David Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars Favorite Star Trek Movie April 1 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is my favorite star trek movie.... It's funny and dramatic at the same time. I love Zefram Cochrane, he's a crusty old man who invented wrap drive.
The Borg scare the crap out of me, but I think that's the point (if aliens are really - I hope that the Borg aren't out there)
Resistance is futile.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great Star Trek and Sci-Fi Film Nov. 10 2003
Format:DVD
(...) I liked Star Trek First Contact and it's one of the best things Star Trek has ever done.
First Contact is the continuing adventures of the crew of the Enterprise from TNG series. The crew must go back in time and stop the cybernetic species The Borg. The Borg are trying to stop Zepryham Cochran. The man who developed warp drive and established first contact. If stoped it could be catostrophic to the futre of the Enterprise and of the federation.
The cast from The Next Generation is fantastic. They all had there specific talents that added to the show. They all shine in First Contact.
Patrick Stewart is great. He is one of the most underrated actors of all-time. He is a former Shakesperian actor and he can flat out act. He wasn't always given the best work in Star Trek and this is some of his finest work he has ever done.
Jonathan Frakes is great. Not only does he continue his role as Cmdr. Riker but he directed the film. He uses the suspense and unkown of the Borg well. He really does add to there race with what he does with them in the movie. He's funny as Riker and is less of the playboy that Riker is in the show.
Brent Spiner is great as well. It's a shame he hasn't done a lot more out of Star Trek. He really gets into his characters well and plays them well. Data is one of the most beloved characters in Star Trek and the film really shows why.
Levar Burton has a great role in the film. He plays Geordi well in what has become his signature role. He's argueably the most successful man ouside of Star Trek with his role on Reading Rainbow and from the hit mini series Roots. It's great to see Geordi without that stupid visor he had the show. I love his optical implants.
I love the score Jerry Goldsmith wrote for this film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sept. 6 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
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!
