Storyline

While on a mission to observe the peaceful Ba'ku race, Lieutenant 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 U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-E to the Prime Directive. Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

Trivia

Industrial Light & Magic had provided the visual effects for Star Trek: Generations (1994) and Star Trek: First Contact (1996), but did not return for this one, because they were busy working on Deep Impact (1998) and Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999). See more »

Goofs

Picard tells Anij that what they Baku have would be worth more to some than gold pressed latinum. But nothing would have a value in a society without money unless you needed to barter for it, in which case the value would be based on what the seller needs and is willing to give for it. See more »

Alternate Versions

The original version of the fight between Picard and Ru'afo contained an additional scene. After Picard was beamed away by the Enterprise, Ru'afo fell into the planet's rings and was regressed into a young child. This scene was cut from the final film, but a "Young Ru'afo" is still listed in the credits. See more »

I actually enjoyed this movie!
11 February 2003 | by azalardSee all my reviews

Granted, it didn't have everything I wanted in it, but I actually enjoyed Star Trek: Insurrection. The humor was great, although I wish there was a little more between the Enterprise and the Son'a ships. I enjoyed this movie and I own it on DVD.
