Pahrump Valley Gazette Tla ursdayl May 22, i997 A./d mm m m "Star Trek: First Contact," True Trekkie Tryst by Barney Basin Gazette Reviewer In "First Contact," Captain Jean-Luc Picard, played by Patrick Stewart, (who else), goes boldly where no man has gone before .... or was that Captain James T. Kirk in the Star Trek movie I-VII? While going, boldly or not, Picard must battle boring Borgs, who he has battled before. What's a Borg, you might ask? Borgs are a half-organic, half-machine race, with a hive mentality and a purpose to assimilate and enslave all races. In this process they.bore into The "Enterprise" crew members and replace organic "tissue with machine parts. Except in Data's case, machine parts are replaced by organic. For that 2 percent of the planet that has been untouched by the Star Trek experience, Data, played by Brent Spiner, is an android. When viewing movies that are spin-offs, the actions of the main characters are predicable. Some of the more interesting performances become the new members of the cast. In this case there are two stand outs. Alice Krige as the slimly, seductive, sadistic Borg queen is a delight in her evilness. film, for it remains true to the original concept of the TV show. It also stands well as just a good sci-fi action adventure. In a future "Next Generation" film (it's a guarantee that there will be one) this critic would like to see a story line that would show more character on one or two of the major players. .
