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.
In the twenty-fourth century, the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-E 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 Jean-Luc Picard ignores orders and takes command of the fleet engaging the Borg. But the Borg plan to travel back into the twenty-first century through a vortex with the intention to stop Earth's first contact with an alien race (the Vulcans). 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 seductive Queen is to make sure that Zefram Cochrane makes his famous faster-than-light travel to the stars.Written by
When Cochrane views the Enterprise through the telescope, it is moving across the sky. When Picard and Lily look down on the earth through a force shield, the Enterprise is orbiting above Australia. For the crew to teleport between earth and the Enterprise at will, Picard would have placed the Enterprise in geosynchronous orbit directly above Montana. The Enterprise should have appeared motionless to Cochrane. See more »
It's odd the people of earth were able to resist the urge to destroy those encountered for the first time, by not enslaving them, or taking their belongings or treating them like animals, denying their very existence, removing their customs and culture, shackling them into chains and branding them - all very out of character as history would suggest a slightly different outcome but I guess that's where the fiction part comes in.
