Star Trek: Insurrection
Yet another installment in the Star Trek series (sigh). Donít get me wrong, I am a loyal
Trekker, and Iíll go see the next movie whenever it comes out. Itís just that many of the
episodes of the old TV shows were more interesting and inventive than any of the Star Trek
movies have been. Theyíve found a formula for these films that seems to bring in the big bucks
and now theyíre just plugging away at it, sticking in different aliens and Federation officials as
the villains, coming up with new ridiculous-sounding technical terms and procedures that they
can use to get the heroes out of jams, inventing more and more embarrassing and goofy things to
happen to Worf and Data, and always, always setting everything to self-destruct! And how
many times has Piccard been trapped in a cave now? All the cast from "The Next Generation" is
back, and Jonathon Frakes, good old Number One, is directing again. I wonder what would
happen if David Lynch directed a Star Trek film...
