What about all my witty comments up above? Will they be framed and kept?
you left him at the collector?
these star trek reviews are funny
Hiserection. Oh wow.
Same here. I do remember 1 thing… a silly speech by picard that 1 life is worth a 1000.
Nice selective editing with the Data bit…
Do a pizza roll!
(Z or R twice)!
I see what you did there, Slippy.
These reviews make me want a Star Trek: Next Generation series with the scripts of the series, but the budget of the Star Wars prequels. But apparently you can’t have good scripts and good production value at the same time.
what about Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies or Marvel’s films (except for the Iron Man trilogy and Captain America).
Even more shocking when taken in context of the Star Trek timeline as a whole. DS9 was in it’s 6th season at the time so that means while Picard and Co. were screwing around in the Briar Patch millions were dying on the front lines of the Dominion War. Starfleet really would’ve benefited from this planet’s healing properties. If Sisko were on this mission he would’ve taken the planet from the hippie Ba’ku and driven off the Sona.
No, it takes place just after the end of the war. I am pretty sure.
This movie aired in 1998, DS9 ended in 1999. The war was most definitely on, and Riker even mentions in the beginning that the Diplomatic Corps is busy with Dominion negotiations.
I just realized Anthony Zerbe (Dougherty) is an abnormally long lived species that was originally called Thomas Mitchell
300 days of shore leave? Isn’t that like a year off? How often does Picard get this, and why does he feel compelled to brag about this to some woman he barely knows? I thought it was obvious to the audience and even grandma that they were just a short term romance and nothing else. What lazy writing…….
The idea is that Picard is a workaholic and never took time off. Remember in the series when Dr. Crusher had to more or less order him to take a vacation? Not hard to believe Picard would build up huge amounts of time off!
Every so often I come back and watch this just for the “Where’s Ruafo?” bit with Riker at the end.
what is wrong with those people? are they really that stupid or just butthurt?
Insurrection should have topped First Contact. In script and special effects. I personally would have loved to have seen a Deep Space Nine TNG movie crossover. Taking place during one of the final battles of the Dominion War… now that would have been awesome.
I did that with Nemesis. I re watched it recently and thought… Oh yeah…
There is a slight problem when a movie with a budget of $58 million has CGI that looks like a TV series almost half a decade old at that time, though.
I want some fucking pizza rolls email them to me
On the today’s military if a chopper or hummer has to be left behind, and order is given to destroy it, so the enemy do not re-purpose it, but the use plastic explosives or the fuel, is logical to assume that in the future the military install a self destruct option since blowing and entire star ship is a complicated to pull off on a hurry.
That’s true enough. But the military doesn’t have vehicles and equipment permanently rigged with explosives all the time. Worse, with these self-destruct devices it is connected to a computer. Imagine if a nefarious hacker sent a virus and simultaneously blew up all of starfleets ships all at once. Kaboom! The federation is conquered with a single klingon and his BB gun.
Plinkett you slippery weasel, at 3:55 data takes mike hagerty’s anvil off the guy’s foot, he does not drop it on him! What is this, Star Trek: Special Edition ??
I love how gleeful Picard sounds when he says, “I’m about to commit a direct violation of our orders!” I want do be given orders in a group now just so that I can disobey them and announce it like that.
This is one of the weaker Plinkett reviews, most likely due to the fact that this is one of the weaker TNG movies. I first watched this movie in 1998, and I’m pretty sure that was the point I started losing interest in Star Trek. The greatest appeal for Star Trek fans was the story and canon, not the silly probability of Capt. Picard and Co. being “space badasses”. Guh.
Thanks for making me remember bad things, RLM.
anyone else get the cellphone commercial randomly flashing farenheight 451? weird
well, they did establish that the Federation was there so they could use the Son’a to harvest the therapeutic healing radiation; doubtless would the Federation need this, especially since they were in the Dominion War.
