I did really like Generations, especially Data displaying his emotions, and Nemesis with the battle with Shinzon's Scimitar (now that's my dream car!). First Contact is my favorite though. Alice Kridge as the Borg Queen gave me the chills. Wicked cool! It was also neat to see Picard go Rambo.

First Contact I definitely agree with...but the opening battle was about as exciting as a rain delay at a Marlins vs. Nationals baseball game. It never ceases to amaze me that people think that sequence was exciting. I find it to be one of the biggest missed opportunities in the entire film franchise. Very, very weak and disapointing.

Maybe "exciting" isn't really the right word. I would say "menacing" or "tense" is better.


If that battle was meant to be a major plot point in the movie, I'm sure it would have been more dramatic, exciting, etc. But the only purpose of that battle was to get the Enterprise alone with the Borg when they went back in time (and also to better establish Picard's "unique insight" into the Borg).


Until the Enterprise showed up, it looked like the battle was going little better than it did at Wolf 359. When the Enterprise did arrive, they kept the scene tense, but slightly less so.

I guess, in a vacuum, it's not a bad scene. I just remember being totally disappointed in the movie theater at how sterile and bloodless it felt. It was like a bunch of little ships flying around and getting shot. Then the Enterprise shows up and they destroy the cube in about 10 seconds, with very little drama or tension. "Hi Everyone, we're here. Everyone shoot your phasers here...ok? Zap Zap Boom! We blew them up!" That's almost literally what happens.


It just seemed like a missed opportunity to show something really intense and emotional. The Wolf 359 opening of DS9 in "Emissary" has this beat by far...and that's not a good thing.


But, to your point, the movie (rightfully so) was not about the fleet battling the Borg Cube. It was about the time travel ship and the attempted assimilation of the Enterprise...and they had to move the plot along. Still...just felt like a blown opportunity to do something powerul and really set the tone.

Well, I guess if your a huge fan of the been there, done that better before movie story line, I guess one might call any of TNG films good.

I don't know whether to laugh or be deeply disturbed by the fact that Insurrection is coming in at #2. I think that makes a pretty interesting comment on just how mediocre the 4 TNG movies really are.

Call me crazy, but I loved Nemesis. However, since it was the first sci-fi movie I ever watched, I'm probably incredibly biased.

OK, your crazy and misguidedly biased.
