The Borg travel 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.
After a joyous wedding between William Riker and Deanna Troi, Captain Picard and the Enterprise crew stumble upon a mysterious signal which results in it being a prototype android who is the twin to Data. Then the Enterprise is invited to Romulus to negotiate peace with the Romulans by their new Praetor named Shinzon. However, Shinzon is revealed to be a clone of Picard who was raised on Remus, a slave planet to the Romulans. Later on, Picard discovers that this peace treaty was nothing more than a set-up due to the fact that Shinzon needs Picard in order to survive. But little do the Enterprise crew know that Shinzon also plans to do away with the Federation by unleashing a weapon that could destroy a whole planet. Written by

In the first few shots of the Argo buggy, as it leaps from the back of the craft and makes several sharp maneuvers, it is apparent from its stiffness that the figure in the rear seat (supposedly Worf) is actually a dummy. See more »
Senators, consider the opportunities for the Empire. At last, the destinies of the planets Romulus and Remus will be united. Shinzon of Remus is offering us a chance to make ourselves stronger than ever before. It would be madness to reject it. I beg you not to let prejudice or politics interfere with this Alliance. By joining Shinzon's forces with ours, not even the Federation will be able to stand in our way.
That's enough! The decision has been made. The military does not ...

The "Star Trek" franchise must walk a wide chasm between the desire to generate the big box office (true of almost any major release) and not alienating the "faithful". Unfortunately, as of late, concern number one has held increasing sway. But as in the "classic" movie series, they finally decided to throw one more bone to us starving dogs of the faithful. This is a big thigh bone, with a lot of meat on it, but it still is not quite satisfying.
With out going into details, some threads were left dangling that even the original one hour TV series would have not overlooked. Some parts of the ending were telegraphed from the middle. Some parts seemed too talky, even for star trek and the usual contrast of characters did not make the dialog interesting enough. However, I felt more for this group of characters in this movie than I ever have--and there were a couple of surprises!
Before you think this is a bad movie--don't, it is way above the usual drek of mainstream motion picture fair (as is most Star Trek), but just is not quite up to the standards die hard fans have come to expect from the best of this series (this is a very high standard).
Let's hope the powers that be continue in this direction. It is more than a worthy entry into the Star Trek legend and certainly the best of the "Next Generational" offering.
