Memorable Quotes and Dialog:
"Resistance is futile."
- Android Lt. Commander Data (BRENT SPINER)
- Lt. Commander Worf (MICHAEL DORN)
The elegance of the story is enhanced by the sure direction of Jonathan Frakes, who also plays Commander William Riker. Full Review
It's easily one of the best in the series -- the best, in fact, since Leonard Nimoy and the old Enterprise crew saved the whales in "Star Trek IV." Full Review
It does a good job of serving up elements that will please the fans of the show, but it does not quite stand on its own as a memorable motion picture event. Full Review
Rating: 7/10 -- If the film itself is a little bit generic, more of a popcorn sci-fi action film than a faithful adaptation of the characters from the series, that's probably all to the good. Full Review

...Blessed with clever plot devices....FIRST CONTACT does everything you'd want a STAR TREK film to do, and does it with cheerfulness and style...
Los Angeles Times
First Contact is no grab bag of camp gewgaws; it stands proud and apart, accessible even to the Trek-deficient. This old Star, it seems, has a lot of life in it. Full Review
Rating: 7/10 -- ...a huge step beyond Generations. Full Review
The Borg have once again targeted the Federation; this time, their devious plot threatens not only the present, but Earth's past as well. While Commander Riker, Deanna Troi, and Geordi La Forge work hard on the surface of 21st-century Earth to keep history on schedule, the rest of the crew plays a desperate game with the genetically-networked attackers above the planet, matching former Locutus Jean-Luc and cybernetically-naive Data against the erotic, mechanized cunning of the Borg queen. Resistance is futile.
