Rating: A- -- First Contact just works. It works as a rousing chapter in the Star Trek saga, and to a lesser extent it works as mainstream entertainment 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
Antagony & Ecstasy
This makes little concession to non-initiates. 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
A smashingly exciting sci-fi adventure that ranks among the very best in the long-running Paramount franchise.
The elegance of the story is enhanced by the sure direction of Jonathan Frakes, who also plays Commander William Riker. 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
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.
