Resistance is Futile.
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?

"...pulsates with great imagination, amusing characters...  Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"...does everything you'd want a "Star Trek" film to do, and it does it with cheerfulness and style.  Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"...the movie glides along with purpose and style.  Richard Corliss, Time

Editor's Note
The Borg have once again targeted the Federation; this time, their devious plot threatens not only the present, but Earth's past as well. While Commander Riker, Deanna Troi, and Geordi La Forge work hard on the surface of 21st-century Earth to keep history on schedule, the rest of the crew plays a desperate game with the genetically-networked attackers above the planet, matching former Locutus Jean-Luc and cybernetically-naive Data against the erotic, mechanized cunning of the Borg queen. Resistance is futile.

Expert Review Star Trek: First Contact - DVD Review
By: Christopher Null filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 9/11/2009 5:42 PM
People tend to measure the quality of a Star Trek movie in relation to those near it in the cycle. Compared to episodes before (5 and 7) and those that followed (9 and 10), this eighth installment of the unkillable series is surprisingly watchable. Jonthan "Riker" Frakes is at the helm this time, taking the Next Generation crew on its first mission without the original series cast. The setup comes fast, as Frakes trots out one of the series' most reliable villains: The Borg. Building from the mythology set up in the series, Picard (a former Borg captive) has a serious axe to grind, and when Starfleet ends up in a skirmish with an invading Borg ship, he defies orders and engages them in battle....read the full review

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly
"...A zippy new energy and a sleek, confident style....Witty, pleasurable..." -- Rating: B 12/06/1996 p.51

Variety
"...A smashingly exciting sci-fi adventure that ranks among the very best....Stewart once again comports himself with all the gravity and panache you would expect from a Shakespearean-trained actor..." 11/18/1996

Los Angeles Times
"...Blessed with clever plot devices....FIRST CONTACT does everything you'd want a STAR TREK film to do, and does it with cheerfulness and style..." 11/22/1996 p.F1

ReelViews 8 of 10
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. - James Berardinelli

Chicago Sun-Times 9 of 10
"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. - Roger Ebert
