Lets start with this one. Six years after he infamous Battle of Wolf 359 The Borg return to Federation Space to assimilate humanity. But unlike the the Battle of Wolf 359 this time the Federation was more prepared for the Borg and by the time The Enterprise Arrived heavy damage was already done to the cube. A Feat not even closly acheived at Wolf 359.
This battle was great because its actually very rare to see a massive number of ships all fighting together in Star trek (its mostly one on one battles). It was nice to see the Borg getting a taste of thier own medicine.
"Be honest capitan, warrior to warrior, you do prefer it this way dont you? As it was meant to be, no peace in our time"
The Klingon moon praxis is destroyed, radiation from the moon particles damage the ozone layer of Qo'noS, leaving it only 50 earth years of Oxygen left. With no where else to turn The Klingons open up peace talks with The Federation. Unfortunatly the prospect of an end to nearly 70 years of hostilities was not welcomed by some, and so began the Khitomer conspiracy. General Chang being one of those people who sought to prevent any lasting peace treaty from being signed between the Federation and the Klingon Empire. So when he failed to kill Kirk the first time he tryed again with his new weapon, A Klingon Bird of Prey that can fire when cloaked. Something that was unheard of at the time.
This battle was Awesome not because its action packed or explosive, but because it stood the test of time. This movie came out in 1991 and in 2010 it still looks amazing. The music really made the scene that much better as it captures the gravity of the situation. The Battle its self was great, but the filming, the shots and the acting were very well done.
(Explosive, Action-packed, and Damn good looking).
This Battle took place in Star Trek XI. After emgering from a black hole in the 23rd century (from the 24th) Nero attacks the USS Kelvin, which was on patrol near the Federation/Klingon border. As fate would have it this ship happens to be the very ship George Kirk (James T Kirks father) is serving on.
Like the Battle of Khitomer the music in this scene is what really made it pop, along with great performances from the actors, I myself felt like I was there (watching it in IMAX probably had caused that feeling also). Another reason i liked the battle (from a tech geek Point Of View) was that The Narada was a century more advanced than the Kelvin, and yet the Kelvin put up a good fight.
