The best of "The Next Generation" movies and the most action-packed. It is refreshingly different from the TV-series and has a great "darker" atmosphere that is closer in style to the "Deep Space Nine" show. A lot of memorable set-pieces and a satisfying ending that explain how humans came in contact with other aliens. Only the kidnapping of Data seem like it's been put there to give actor Brent Spiner more to do.
a movie i originaly was not thrilled with that gets better with age, the best of the star trek tng movies and the only alternative scored star trek tng movie worth watching. My preferences are star trek 1-4 and first contact watch the reboot if you want to remove your brain. A pity the borg werent used more for tng's movies as tngs movies sucked for removing the tv series terrific score wich was borrowed from st II.
