Product Description

Product Description

In this most colorful and relaxed installment of Paramount's longest running series, Captain Picard leads his multicultural starship crew in a rebellion to save a planet from the very Federation they serve so proudly.

From Amazon.co.uk

Star Trek fans were decidedly mixed in their reactions to this, the ninth big-screen feature in Paramount's lucrative Trek franchise, but die-hard loyalists will appreciate the way this Next Generation adventure rekindles the spirit of the original Star Trek TV series while combining a tolerable dose of New-Agey philosophy with a lighthearted plot for the TNG cast. This time out, Picard (Patrick Stewart) and his executive crew must transport to a Shangri-la-like planet to see why their android crewmate Data (Brent Spiner) has run amuck in a village full of peaceful Ba'ku artisans who--thanks to their planet's "metaphasic radiation"--haven't aged in 309 years.

It turns out there's a conspiracy afoot, masterminded by the devious, gruesomely aged Ru'afo (F. Murray Abraham, hamming it up under makeup resembling a cosmetic surgeon's worst nightmare), who's in cahoots with a renegade Starfleet admiral (Anthony Zerbe, in one of his final screen roles). They covet the fountain-of-youth power of the Ba'ku planet, but because their takeover plan violates Starfleet's Prime Directive of noninterference, it's up to Picard and crew to stop the scheme. Along the way, they all benefit from the metaphasic effect, which manifests itself as Worf's puberty (visible as a conspicuous case of Klingon acne), Picard's youthful romance with a Ba'ku woman (the lovely Donna Murphy), the touching though temporary return of Geordi's natural eyesight, and a moment when Troi asks Dr. Crusher if she's noticed that her "boobs are firming up." Some fans scoffed at these humourous asides, but they're what make this Trek film as entertaining as it is slightly disappointing. Without the laughs (including Data's rousing excerpt from Gilbert & Sullivan's HMS Pinafore), this is a pretty routine entry in the franchise, with no real surprises, a number of plot holes, and the overall appearance of a big-budget TV episode. As costar and director, Jonathan Frakes proves a capable carrier of the Star Trek flame--and it's nice to see women in their 40s portrayed as smart and sexy--but while this is surely an adequate Trek adventure, it doesn't quite rank with the best in the series. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

After the excitement and action of First Contact, things slowed down a bit for this next film in the star trek series, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. there's a little more time for some charachter development,humor and some wonderful plot developments (Riker and troi rekindelling their romance for instance). it does drag a bit at times, but the pace picks up nicely in the second half to an exciting climax.
the film centers aroung picard defying starfleet orders to prevent 600 people from being uprooted from their planet. i do feel more could have been made of this. Kirk did a similar thing in Star Trek III and ended up stealing the enterprise, going to a forbidden planet and ultimately blowing the ship up. THAT'S how you disobey orders. picard on the other hand, merely hangs around when told to return to earth,makes a nuisance of himself and ends up arguing with an admiral - not quite in the same league.
Despite this there is still plenty to keep audiances entertained.
i was disappointed that there was no director's commentry. Jonathan Frakes came across really well on the commentery to First Contact, as genuinely nice guy who enjoys his flimaking, so i felt a little let down by the absence of any commentry here. he does make up for it in the movie, however, by showing us the best way to have a shave (the lucky git!!!).
All in all, a solid addition to the series and well worth adding to your collection.

Star Trek fans and other viewers have long derided this film for what it did not do. It did not follow on from the tension and excitement in First Contact, and it did not on the other hand live up to the pre-film hype that it would return to the humour of Star Trek IV.

However, what it did do, with benefit of hindsight, is in fact be one of the Next Generation movies that does live up to Roddenberry's ideal - there is a real theme and message here that Roddenberry would have been happy to put his name to.

The story starts when Data, involved in a duck-blind observation of the Ba'ku, a peaceful 'new-age-y' sort of race, goes apparently rogue. Picard and crew come to investigate, only to find that the planet may have the secret to eternal youth, and the observers have more than observing in mind - they plan the mass eviction of the Ba'ku. Picard is placed in a position of choosing between principle and his career, living out the moral centre ideal that Roddenberry loved so much.

There are elements of humour, some welcome fan appreciated vignettes, such as Geordi having a chance to see, Riker and Troi becoming close again, and the story moves along at a respectable pace. Set design is impressive, and the movie benefits from more on-location sets than any other Next Generation movie, giving it a unique identity. However, the darker edge IS missed, and while good, the movie never quite reaches the heights of some of its predecessors, or explores the themes quite as much as you would want it to.

So this particular disc will live or die on the extras - and they are a worthy set. Sadly, there is no director's commentary by Frakes, but there is a text commentary for the Trek Trivia inclined, by Michael and Denise Okuda.

'Star-Trek' the adventure continues for the crew of the 'Enterprise'
On a seemingly idyllic planet occupied by just 600 persons 'The Ba'Ku' a plot is developing the intent of

Captain Picard' and his crew are on the way, it seems 'Data' serving the Federation on the planet is out
of control.
On the planet's surface 'Jean Luc' finds the 'Ba'ku' are not as technologically naïve as they first appear,
they tell the Captain that 'Data' has warned the planets inhabitants are in danger from both the 'Federation'
and 'Son'a'
The 'Admiral' orders 'Captain Picard' and his crew to leave. however there are deep suspicions among the
crew of the happenings on the planet.
Now the Captain must risk all by disobeying a direct order from a Federation Commander, to uphold the very
principles of the Federation and protect the population of the planet if but only 600, decisions and a plan of
action have to be made, quickly.
What is it that is so valuable on this particular planet to the 'Son'a' and seemingly the Federation that makes
it necessary to remove it's occupants.
It becomes a matter of principle for 'Jean Luc' he's prepared to return to the surface to help the 'Ba'ku' the
crew of the Enterprise insist on standing side by side with their Captain.
'Picard' directs 'Riker' and 'Geordi' to report to 'Star-Fleet Command and The Federation' what is happening

If all Star Trek films were action-packed adventures, they would not have proved so popular. It's the variety that keeps things interesting.
If you want to see a follow-on from the Next Generation series, then watch Generations. If you want an all-out action film, First Contact is for you. But following on from First Contact this film made for a nice change of pace.
The reason I've given it only four stars has nothing to do with the plot or feel of the film. There is one scene during a battle sequence where a helicopter-style joystick is used by Commander Riker to pilot the Enterprise from the command seat, which kind of makes you wonder why the helmsman has such a complicated control board in front of him if a good old 20th century joystick is all that's needed.
As for this story being more like a big-budget series 2-parter, so what? Personally, I'd love to see the Next Generation 2-part episode 'Best Of Both Worlds' in uninterrupted widescreen format.
Keep the Treks coming and I'll look forward to number 10 sometime in 2001!
