Released in 1998, Insurrection is the ninth film in the Star Trek franchise and the third with the full cast of the Star Trek: The Next Generation television series, starring Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard. Its predecessor, First Contact, was a big hit, but this follow-up failed to thrill the fans.
Synopsis: When the crew of the Enterprise learn of a Federation plot against the inhabitants of a unique planet, Capt. Picard begins an open rebellion.
I thought this was a great movie, I could never figure out why it didn’t do as well. I know First Contact had the Borg in it, which is a fan favorite enemy, so perhaps that’s why Insurrection wasn’t a hit. Perhaps also because, unlike previous films, this one felt more like an extended episode of the television series. I recommend it, though, especially for this discounted price.
