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?|
"...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 NoteThe 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.
