The Borg go back in time intent on preventing Earth's first contact with an alien species. Captain Picard and his crew pursue them to ensure that Zefram Cochrane makes his maiden flight reaching warp speed.
On the eve of retirement, Kirk and McCoy are charged with assassinating the Klingon High Chancellor and imprisoned. The Enterprise crew must help them escape to thwart a conspiracy aimed at sabotaging the last best hope for peace.
In the late 23rd century, the gala maiden voyage of the third Starship Enterprise (NCC-1701-B) boasts such luminaries as Pavel Chekov, Montgomery Scott and the legendary Captain James T. Kirk as guests. But the maiden voyage turns to disaster as the unprepared ship is forced to rescue two transport ships from a mysterious energy ribbon. The Enterprise manages to save a handful of the ships' passengers and barely makes it out intact... but at the cost of Captain Kirk's life. Seventy-eight years later, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Enterprise-D find themselves at odds with the renegade scientist Tolian Soran... who is destroying entire star systems. Only one man can help Picard stop Soran's scheme... and he's been dead for seventy-eight years. Written by

A new set of Starfleet uniforms was intended to be introduced in the film to be worn by the Enterprise-D crew. These new uniforms would have been similar to the television ones, except the collars would have been the same department color as the rest of the tunic and the rank pips would have been worn on the shoulder with a corresponding rank braid on the wrists. The uniforms were eventually nixed by producer Rick Berman. The decision was then made to use both the uniforms from Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) as well as the uniforms from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993). However, Playmates had already made an action figure line for the film with the Enterprise-D crew wearing the aborted uniforms. It was too late to retract the figures, which is the only place the aborted uniforms can be seen. See more »
After Soran punches B'Etor, her lip bleeds and the blood is red. This is not an error. Except for Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, where Klingon blood is bright pink, it's always red, so, at most, this goof belong to that movie, not this one, and even in that movie it's not a goof (see trivia section for "The Undiscovered Country").

Lets see--Star Trek, the Next Generation takes place about 80 years in the future from the end of the original's series movies. How do you provide continuity?--Why time travel, of course! Jeeze, this has been done to death! The writers of the TV series were much more original in bringing Scotty into the future with hi-tech mumbo jumbo about a rigged transporter. I thought movie script writers were paid more money and could at least come up with something on par with TV, but alas No(sadly, the same thing could be said of the "Star Trek" movie writers in general). And lets face it--Spock was supposedly still alive when "STTNG" occurred, so wouldn't he have liked to know his great friend was still alive?
I know Nimoy did not take part in this movie, because he did not think the role was "meaty" enough and his absence was sorely felt. It would have been very entertaining to see a match up between Data's machine logic and Spock's Vulcan logic.
