Our Score
In this first-rate adventure, the Borg travel back in time to sabotage that pivotal moment in Earth's destiny when we first made contact with an alien race. What else can Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) do except follow and sort things out? Epic in scope, grandiose in emotional sweep and featuring awesome special effects, this is captivating science fiction packed with ideas, thrills, in-jokes and tense action. It's all expertly marshalled by director Jonathan Frakes (who also plays Commander Riker) with a keen visual eye and an inherent understanding of the history and importance of the series.

Summary

Sci-fi adventure sequel, starring Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, Brent Spiner, James Cromwell and Alice Krige.
