Post Star Trek IX: Insurrection

I watched it for the first time yesterday.

I thought it was ok. I give it a 2/5 rating.

The story is good. It had a lot of potential, but it just didn't feel like Star Trek. The space battles were good though.

I'm watching Nemesis for the first time tonight.


btw I noticed that they used the Enterprise-E. What happened to the Enterprise-D?

Thanks.

Yeah I'm trying to watch all the movies. I knew I should have watched them in chronological order!

It's good enough for the D, but not for Kirk... *sigh*

Insurrection had a humongous drop in quality compared to First Contact, and that's why I didn't enjoy it at all.

The first thing that turned me off were the opening credits.

It did have a feel of VI and V with the ease of characters and trying to add humor, but any film following first contact was bound to not be as good

I wouldn't say that Insurrection is an awful movie or anything (it's about a billion times better than Nemesis but then again, so is botchulism) but it's just not particularly very good. I've only ever seen it twice, and while it does have the odd nice moment, I find it a bit lifeless and boring.

I felt it wasn't even good enough to be a episode of TNG, let alone a film. WHat a waste of great acting talents in that film.

To me, Insurrection, just like Generations and First Contact, felt like a decent two-part episode.

The story did have something to say in the way of "forced relocation" of a group of people, and perhaps, to some extent "ethnic cleansing".

The humor in it was good, if a bit blatant (ala ST V:TFF), but not quite over the top as TFF.

This is the beginning of Worf being relegated to the comic-relief role...a role that sadly would be continued in Nemesis.

Still not sure what to think of the "flight stick" that was mysteriously installed in the bridge.

The story was decent. The acting was on par with typical TNG material. The special effects were good, even though they did look like stuff that could've easily been produced for television.

(personal opinions only)
