Enjoyable story, but horrible dialogue, 24 April 2015
Author: siderite from Romania

You can't expect a lot from a Machinima movie. The characters are 3D models reused from various games, the animations are kind of locked in place and the only thing that can save it is a good story and good audio dubbing. With this in mind, it has a decent story and bad, but not horrible dubbing. The sound bits were cut and pasted, though, from who knows what source and it fast gets really annoying.

But consider the plot. An unsuccessful assimilation of an alien species results in a hybrid that wants to take over the Borg and destroy all life. Picard's Enterprise and Tuvok's Dallas (a version of Defiant) join forces with Klingons and Romulans to defend. However the strenuous relationship between the three races leads to complications and we get to witness in the end a semi assimilated Enterprise with a holo-cloaking device fighting a planet-size Borg sphere wrecked by interspecies civil war. It can hardly get better than that.

Now, the plot is sketchy, there are numerous confusing bits and parts that make no sense and all the characters are horrible clichés of their respective races, but what was worst of all was the dialogue. I understand that they had limited audio material to work with and, by that standard, they did a very decent job. But objectively it is still horrible!

Bottom line: a Borg methadone pill for the hardcore trekkie having withdrawal symptoms.
