Elevator Pitch Due to Captain Picard’s knowledge of the Borg he is able to prevent their invasion of earth, but they go back in time to a key point in order to frustrate the invention of the warp drive, followed by the Enterprise.
Content Some impressive space battles, and action with phasers on kill. The Borg are frightening – and the evil Borg queen – wow! Not for younger viewers I don’t think.
A View This is a well constructed film with action and plot, putting the crew of the Enterprise in a variety of difficult situations, particularly Data who is tempted to assist the Borg by their seductive queen.
