Captain Picard vs the hated Borg on the big screen. The best of the Next Gen movies with sci fi action and drama.

Perhaps a little of Kirk rubbed off on Picard during their brief encounter in Star Trek: Generations. For Picard, who was always more of a bureaucratic captain who delegated the dangerous jobs to underlings like his first officer, finally learns how to take charge and kick butt on his own. It takes the Borg, the ultimate bad guys of Star Trek: The Next Generation, to do the job. Picard's passionate hatred of the Borg mirrors Kirk's hatred for the Klingons after the death of his son.

Loved this movie-wild mix of humor, action and thrills as Picard's crew once again struggles against the BORG! This is the best "Next Generation" movie ever produced!

Awesome showdown with Picard's crew against the evil Borg for the fate of the future. Fills in gaps to Star Treks history. Best TNG film.

Picard assembles a security squad against The Borg
Star Trek movies never really reached the masses of audiences out there.  When the shows are readily available to anyone with a TV it's "techno babble" of "subspace field emissions of influx meson particles" and "quantum singularities in the warp field matrix" are seen as a turn off to many and add to the "geek" nature of Star Trek where it's fans buy books to learn the process of how such things work, as if it matters.  Many people would just assume stay away from the movie and watch …
