The Borg travel back in time intended 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.
A century before Captain Kirk's five-year mission, Jonathan Archer captains the United Earth ship Enterprise during the early years of Starfleet, leading up to the Earth-Romulan War and the formation of the Federation.
In the late 23rd century, the gala maiden voyage of the newly-christened Enterprise-B boasts such luminaries as Pavel Chekov, Montgomery Scott and the legendary Captain James T. Kirk as guests. But her maiden voyage turns into a disaster as the unprepared starship 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 succeeds out intact... but at the cost of Captain Kirk's life. 78 years later, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the Enterprise-D crew find themselves at odds with renegade scientist Dr. Tolian Soran... who is destroying entire star systems. Only one man can help Picard stop Soran's scheme... and he has been dead for 78 years. Written by

Viridian III is described as being uninhabited, so who built the gantries at the launch site? The rocket and launch platform may have been beamed down, but the gantries, walkways and steps have been anchored into the rock and give the appearance of having been there for some time. See more »

This is undoubtedly one of the best Star Trek films next to First contact. The special FX were superb, the plot was excellent, acting was excellent, and one of the most striking things about the film was the beautiful filming locations.
The beginning started off a little weak but towards the middle of the film the movie began to strut it's stuff. Once the plot forms after the destruction of a Federation science station the movie will not fail you. The Enterprise-Klingon battle scene was excellent, and the factor which allows the Enterprise to win is also very interesting. Although the part on the planets surface where Picard tries to stop Soran (Malcolm McDowell) was a little weak, especially where Picard magically escapes Soran's 3 disruptor blasts unharmed, the scenes after that were spectacular. After entering the Nexus and realizing he must go back to save the crew of the Enterprise (and the Solar System they are in) Picard seeks Kirk's help (William Shatner). I was truly amazed by the filming locations, they were downright beautiful! Kirk and Picard fit very nicely into it, and it is easy to see why Kirk would not want to leave "the Nexus". The ending fight between Soran and the Kirk-Picard team was a bit sub-par compared to other ST movies, but none-the-less it put a very nice touch to the end of the movie. The way that they leave the story open to a another movie is very well done, and I have to say it fits in very nice with ST: First Contact.
I would definitely recommend renting or buying this movie, and if you watched it on TV then I have to tell you to go rent the movie, because many scenes were "edited" out to fit the movie in a 2-hour timeslot.
