Storyline

While on a mission to observe the peaceful Ba'ku race, Lt. Commander Data suddenly behaves as if having to fear for his existence. The immortal Ba'ku, whose planet offers regenerative radiation and therefore incredible lifespans, live in harmony with nature and reject advanced technology. Their planet and their culture is secretly researched by the Federation associated with an alien race called the Son'a. But the Son'a intend to abduct the Ba'ku in order to take the planet for themselves and for the Starfleet officials who all would like to regenerate their bodies. But they did not think of the loyalty of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Enterprise-E to the Prime Directive. Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

When asked by Capt. Picard if Data has his emotion chip equipped, Geordi La Forge responds that "He didn't take it with him." Star Trek: Generations had established that Data's emotion chip had been fused into his neural net and could not be removed by any means. Of course, it is quite possible that a way to remove the chip had been discovered between the two movies, but it is never addressed or explained by any means. See more »

Highly entertaining
2 January 2000 | by (Bedfordshire, England) – See all my reviews

If you are a Star Trek fan( of which i am) you will not be disappointed by Insurrection. The story is good and the acting is up to it's high standards the only let downs are the lack of any real great special affects and the lame enemies. I would not say this is as good as first contact but never the less well worth watching. 7 out of 10
