Star Trek: Insurrection (1998)


insurrection“Do you remember when we used to be explorers?” – Captain Picard

Number of Times Seen –About 5 times (Theater, video, DVD and 25 Mar 2014)

Brief Synopsis – The Crew of the Enterprise must try and save the inhabitants of a unique planet when they discover that Starfleet has plans to relocate them without their knowledge.

My Take on it – Once again, the team behind TNG have put together a great storyline.

It was nice to once again revisit the characters a few years down the line and see what has happened in the interim.

The main theme of this movie is the idea of finding a way to grab onto your youth and not get bogged down by the present.

I was happy to once again see Jonathan Frakes without his beard. (I always thought he was better looking that way than with the beard, but what do I know?)

There were a few scenes that seemed a bit out of place, like the Gilbert & Sullivan songs for instance and it bothers me that if they wanted to have Worf rejoin the crew again, give him something to do besides grow a Klingon pimple on his nose. 🙂

Many people get too pre-occupied with aging to enjoy the finer things in life and this movie tries to bring home that idea.

It was great seeing the characters once again being able to show off their youthfulness even when they decide to rebel because they want to follow their moral compass.

Although this is an odd numbered Star Trek movie, it’s actually pretty good.

Bottom Line – Nicely done storyline which shows the lengths some people will go for eternal youth and the lengths others will go to in order to stand by their ideals. Recommended!

Rating – Globe Worthy
