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 24th century, the crew of the starship Enterprise has been ordered to patrol the Romulan Neutral Zone by the Federation to avoid interference with their battle against the insidious Borg. Witnessing the loss of the battle, Captain Picard ignores orders and takes control of the whole Fleet engaging the Borg. But the Borg plan to travel back to the 21st Century through a vortex with the intention to stop the First Contact with an alien race. Following the Borg sphere, Picard and his crew realize that they have taken over the Enterprise in order to carry out their mission. Their only chance to do away with the Borg and their hideous queen is to make sure that scientist Zefram Cochrane's attempt to traveling into space is successful. Written by
When Lilly is scared almost out of her skin after seeing her first Borg Drone, that was because it legitimately scared Alfre Woodard. She had never seen Star Trek: The Next Generation prior to filming the movie, so Woodard had no clue what Borg Drones looked like. See more »
The Defiant is shown to be smaller than its scale compared to the Enterprise-E. The Defiant is a small ship, but it is shown at about one-third of its size when the Enterprise-E flies up next to it. See more »
Probably my favourite film of all time. The thing about First Contact is that it's not just about Star Trek. If you don't like Star Trek but can live through the first 20 minutes you'll find a gem of a movie which is as much about the future of humanity & an invention so wonderful as it is about Yet More Star Trek Plot.
Warp Speed - they've been saying that since Captain Kirk. But how did it happen? and why might it all not happen, our future could be in ruins and one flight of one makeshift spacecraft some time after world war III will make all the difference.
The on-screen relationship between Picard & Lily is totally magic, as is the relationship between the Enterprise crew members - you get a sense of team, of family.
First Contact is one film I enjoy watching again & again. The flight of the Phoenix is one scene I totally love, along with the end scenes.
The only sad thing about the movie is that you come away and deep down you know there is no Cochrain, no FTL engine around the corner. Well, not yet!
