Palmer's Trek

Palmer’s Trek: Star Trek: First Contact

Star Trek: First Contact might be the best Star Trek movie I have seen to date. The Borg finally seem to reach their terrorizing potential, Picard says the thing, and James Cromwell’s portrayal of Zefram Cochran and his eccentricities are a masterclass in the things history doesn’t teach. All of this adds up to a fun film in a franchise that had begun to take itself a bit too seriously.
