    This movie is on Sci-Fi right now. I said I was going to watch the Colts game, but I never get tired of seeing First Contact. It's one of those movies that I appreciate more with the passage of time. It's also my second favorite Trek movie, after Wrath of Khan.

    Same here Bro. They are arguabley the two best and the only two I bother to own on DVD.
    Hopefully the Prequel movie will measure up.

    Hands down the best Star Trek movie.

    I love everything about this movie, easily the BEST movie of the TNG crew. one of my fave bits is when you see the the all new Enterprise E appear on screen for the first time playing that WONDERFULL Jerry Goldsmith score. oh and the deflector dish sequence still has me go 'how the hell did they do that' sometimes.

    oh and i think the "E" is the best looking ship to bear the name, ENTERPRISE :woot:

    It really is one of the best designs they've ever come up with.
    My favorite ship design will always be the Intrepid class.:woot:

    I agree with that sentiment. When they decide to initiate self destruct sequence in that movie I was disapointed..but it didn't come to pass.

    I wish Hawke had lived. It would have been interesting to see a character introduced in the NG films stay for a sequel.

    I'm not a big Trek fan nowadays, but I still watch this one whenever it comes on TV. Great movie, and nothing compares to it but WOK. The music that plays during the opening credits is amazingly beautiful.

    The CGI in this movie beats some and if not MOST of the CGI in todays movies, its looks very realistic.

    It's like Jurassic Park and T2, it looks impossibly ahead of it's time.

    Seriously i mean this kills the space scene in Episode 3, even though that was still wonderfully done and absolutely breath taking, it just had something to it that Episode 3 didnt. Please don't flame Star Wars we all know we have a place for it in our hearts its just that in this instance im saying Trek topped it.

    My friend and I had this discussion awhile back.
    We both felt that she was hot, but her skin would feel like Christina Aguilara's when she was in her "dirrrty" phase.

    Not perfect because it moves too fast, and has its silly moments, but as far as giving each character some room to be fleshed out and have some kind of depth within a cool story in a star trek, this is as good as it gets. I love the score too. :word:
