My Rating: 4,5/10
We continue following Picard and his crew on the Enterprise, and this time it is to save a planet with a healing power. The planet Ba’ku is threatened by Starfleet and Picard face the dilemma of whether to obey orders or to go against them.
I feel like there is some connection to the Star Trek: Next Generation series and that bothers me a little. It basically becomes difficult to understand all the relationships and when they talk about previous events etc. I did however really enjoy the environment, there were some beautiful scenes and oh my, thanks for the better graphics. With Sci-Fi I feel like the graphics are extremely important for the movie or the story itself and when the graphics are marvelous I just want to cry happy tears. Well, we shall not exaggerate because the graphics wasn’t that amazing, but still much better than before.
The main story was… should I say weak. It wasn’t really an eventful movie and there could have been more action and an interesting story. Is that too much to ask for? I should not throw hate on the movie though, I mean Picard your ladies man, you are a sneaky little bastard. Haha but in all seriousness, Patrick Stewart does a resplendent job and Data (Brent Spiner) is amazing and just hilarious.
