Star Trek: First Contact

Sharon, Jack and I watched Star Trek: First Contact on Saturday night. Released in November of 1996, I can remember going to see the film in the theater by myself, while Sharon was traveling for work; it may be the only movie I have ever seen in the theater by myself. After seeing Star Trek into Darkness, we have started a loose project to go back and see all of the other Star Trek films in order like we did with the James Bond films.

Star Trek: First Contact is the eighth feature film in the Star Trek science fiction franchise. It is the first film to feature no cast members from the original Star Trek television series of the 1960s. The primary cast for First Contact is from the Star Trek: The Next Generation television series.

The plot of the film involves the crew of the USS Enterprise-E traveling from the 24th to 21st century to save their future after the cybernetic Borg conquered Earth by changing the timeline. The Enterprise arrives in the past, on April 4, 2063, the day before humanity's first encounter with alien life after Zefram Cochrane's historic warp drive flight.

While the special effects are much better than most of the previous Star Trek films, I am just not a fan of time travel movies...
