Product Overview

They call themselves the borg - a half-organic, half-machine collective, and they are headed to earth with a devious plan to alter history. Picard's last encounter with the borg almost killed him. Now he wants vengeance. But how far will he go to get it?

Review A conscious decision was made to develop First Contact into the most action-oriented adventure since Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, and the largely-effective results speak for themselves. This film moves, rarely ever stopping to take a breath. Originality is not at an all-time high, but the film makers have shown a great deal of ingenuity in grafting elements of Moby Dick, Aliens, Terminator 2, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Return of the Jedi, and even Die Hard onto the familiar Star Trek formula, which emphasizes ideas over mindless thrills. The editing is crisp and the direction is sure-handed, making for perhaps the most streamlined Star Trek movie of them all...First Contact has single-handedly revived the Star Trek movie series, at least from a creative point-of-view.

Review "Star Trek: First Contact'' is one of the best of the eight "Star Trek'' films: Certainly the best in its technical credits, and among the best in the ingenuity of its plot...Some of the earlier "Star Trek'' movies have been frankly clunky in the special-effects department; the first of the series came out in 1979 and looked pale in comparison to ``Star Wars.'' But this one benefits from the latest advances in f/x artistry, starting with its sensational opening shot, which begins so deep inside Picard's eyeball, it looks like a star-speckled spacescape and then pulling back to encompass an unimaginably vast Borg starship..."Star Trek'' movies in the past have occasionally gone where no movie had gone, or wanted to go, before. This one is on the right beam.
