Star Trek: First Contact (1996)

By inventing the warp drive, Zefram Cochrane (James Cromwell) attracts the attention of the Vulcan civilisation to Earth’s presence. Spock-eared ambassadors arrive to found the interplanetary alliance that will become the Federation.

In this first-rate adventure, the Borg travel back in time to sabotage that pivotal moment in Earth’s destiny when we first made contact with an alien race, which will change the future. What else can Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) do except follow and sort things out?

Epic in scope, grandiose in emotional sweep and featuring awesome special effects, this is captivating science fiction packed with ideas, thrills, in-jokes and tense action.

It’s all expertly marshalled by director Jonathan Frakes (who also plays Commander Riker) with a keen visual eye and an inherent understanding of the history and importance of the series.
