Star Trek: Insurrection

Star Trek: Insurrection

The second Next Gen film. When Data malfunctions and poses a threat to a colony on a planet that the Federation is keen on acquiring, Picard is summoned to help.

I’ll skip the usual cast breakdown, to just say that all cast were on usual expected top form.

Several moments to point out in this film, though. First; it seems weird that Worf keeps flitting between serving on The Enterprise just for the movies then back to DS9, but more on this might be explained after I watch all of them. I loved the whole capturing data/Gilbert and Sullivan part of the film. Not only can all the actors sing well, but my favourite line of “Sing Worf sing!” is not met well by Worf. Its nice after the weird ending to Season 7 that Riker and Troi finally get back together, it was building up for nearly fifteen years. Another personal few favourite moments were Data explaining that he can be used as a floatation device and the boob conversation he overhears and tries on Worf.

This is definitely a more Next Generation movie compared to First Contact.

Recommend: Every Star Trek fan has already seen it and if you don’t like Star Trek then this isn’t for you.

Overall: 9/10
