Synopsis


Star Trek: Insurrection
Star Trek: Insurrection manages to recall the original 1960s series' spirit of liberalism, while transcending it for sheer boldness, embracing issues that are on the political cutting edge in the 1990s and beyond. The fact that the first 30 minutes are presented as a mystery only makes the material more engrossing. While assisting a survey team of Federation allies observing the populace of a distant planet, Lt. Commander Data (Brent Spiner) seemingly goes berserk and attacks the survey team, exposing their existence to the populace and jeopardizing the mission. Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) brings the Enterprise into orbit to try and apprehend Data and find out what happened . He discovers that the mission isn't one of observation, but the involuntary relocation of a small, peaceful population, undertaken by the Federation and its rogue planet allies the Son'a, supposedly to secure the planet's youth-restoring qualities. As it turns out, there's a much darker side to the plans of the Son'a, and a personal side to the carnage planned by the Son'a leader Ru'afo (F. Murray Abraham). Picard and his officers, suitably outraged by this violation of the Prime Directive -- that no Federation mission may interfere with the natural evolution of an alien culture -- take matters into their own hands in an attempt to expose the plot to public scrutiny, risking their lives in the process. ~ Bruce Eder, Rovi

    watchable but routine

    This movie has nice moments, such as Riker and Troi resuming their love affair, but, like the other TNG films, is merely inconsequential compared to the series. Picard & co. go to a nearby planet Starfleet is monitoring when they report that Data (also on said planet) has inexplicably gone ballistic on his fellow officers. Picard later realizes that Data actually had good reason for his behavior. F. Murray Abraham & Anthony Zerbe are fine as the villain and the misguided Starfleet admiral, respectively. The plotholes, however, show through once you take a good look at the story (for instance, why are these people so knowledgable about technology if they've decided to go the way of the Amish?). As with First Contact, a weakness of this film involves the leading lady opposite Picard (Donna Murphy) instead of the more obvious choice of Beverly.

    There is no debating the lure of Star Trek TNG and perhaps the best thing about this is the touching back story that is the commonality in most Star Trek movies: that we are NOT so different from our "enemies". I'm not so happy with the way the TNG crew have "cleaned up" their images with better uniforms and more makeup but you take the good with the bad. I can accept Picard appearing to never age but the rest of crew almost appears too too stretched and polished. Maybe the plot of the movie hits too close to home, in this regard.

    Of the various Star Trek films, I most often associate the directing of Jonathan Frakes with capturing the nuisances of human interaction. And, despite all the strangeness of science fiction, the story is still about a group of people that we have grown with.

    The whole gang is back for another installment of the Star Trek:Next Gen. series and if this is the last one, it went out with a bang. This time the crew has stumbled onto the a planet that could have the key for the fountain of youth

    Insurrection isn't a terrible film but it does feels like a longer tv episode with a bigger budget.
