Plot Summary

Engage! Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) and his Next Generation crew are back and so is the excitement and fun in this "polished film that shines like a crown jewel in the Star Trek firmament" (George Powell, San Francisco Examiner). From the beginning of the Federation, the Prime Directive was clear: no Starfleet expedition may interfere with the natural development of other civilizations. But now Picard is confronted with orders that undermine that decree. If he obeys, 600 peaceful residents of Ba'ku will be forcibly removed from their remarkable world, all for the reportedly greater good of millions who will benefit from Ba'ku's fountain - of - youth - like powers. If he disobeys, he will risk his starship, his career, his life. But for Picard, there's really only one choice. He must rebel against Starfleet…and lead the insurrection to preserve paradise.

Best Next Generation Star Trek Movie!

This is one of my favorite Star Trek the Next Generation movies. It has an awsome story line and an a reasonable price, a definate buy. My favorite part in the movie is when Picard and Worf start to sing "A British Tar" to calm Data. If you have ever liked Star Trek you must see this movie!

5 Stars - 5 Galaxies full of Stars!

Perfection Achieved. Thank You Star Trek! Thank You Paramount! 1. Excellent Acting and Crew - Flawless performances. 2. Unique Planet, Unique people and species. 3. Amazing Story - simply beautiful. Immortality meets Morality. 4. Great secondary characters, well written to work with the main characters. 5. Echos of the problems faced in our own imperialist society. 6. Excellent pacing - never a dull moment, a great ride. 7. Jonathan Frakes demonstrates what writing Trek could be, and should be. The violin in the hands of the master. 8. New Star Trek technologies to oooh and aaahh at! 9. Beautiful Effects - every pixel rendered with excellence. 10. Should be required viewing for Any and Every Ethics Class. A movie where the struggle is with our base nature, toward our higher selves. Where do we draw the line, when what is happening is simply Wrong. A Star Trek movie memory for a life time - or much, much longer!

Frakes finds his inner Shatner

After delivering the best of the TNG Trek movies with First Contact, Jonathan Frakes disappoints with his second turn in the director's chair.  Despite a thoughtful and interesting premise, the story on the whole ends up feeling claustrophobic and strangely isolated from the epic events that were then unfolding in the Deep Space Nine television series.  And while the film does have its moments, the humor is often borderline juvenile. A character's death is gratuitously gruesome, and explosions are extra-extra-fiery to the point of silliness.  Space combat offers some pretty effects shots but little interest or drama. And then there is the joystick scene. The infamous, risible joystick scene.  Kiss your suspension of disbelief goodbye.
