Anthony Zerbe originally auditioned for the role of Ru'afo and was considered to be the best choice for it.However, the production team decided instead to cast him in the role of Admiral Matthew Dougherty. During Zerbe's audition, instead of reading the lines provided, he recited Dante's Inferno before seamlessly moving into the script. Jonathan Frakes and the producers unanimously decided to award him the part of Dougherty. See more »
When Picard is first meeting with the Baku, there are children playing a hacky-sack type game in the background. During two short shots, the children can be seen making kicking motions but there are no hacky-sacks to be seen. See more »

Don't let some of the bad reviews for this film put you off watching it. I finally got around to watching it last week and I must say that It was no where near as bad as what some people have said about it. In-fact I thought it was pretty good. It's not the best Star Trek film but it's not the worst either. Some people have criticized it by saying that it looks like an extended television episode- All the films except 'the motion picture' have - what's the point of changing the television look and feel when it is so good? The one time they did try to change it from the episode feel (the motion picture) it was crap. Come on people, this is Star Trek - what were you expecting - this was not meant to be another Shawshank Redemption. I like this film so I'm going to give it 8 out of 10 because I don't care what other people say.
