F is for Feelings, Fighting and Fear! Star Trek First Contact was directed by Johnathan Frakes in 1996 gaining him the nickname "Two-Takes Frakes" for his fast shooting style.
Captain Picard hunts the borg into the past to prevent them changing the course of Earths history. Meanwhile his crew is fighting and defending its ship from the resilient assimilating Borg. Its funny but all Earth's future hinges on Zefram Cochrane igniting his little warp rocketship in space. Cochrane's part was offered to trekkie fan Tom Hanks, but he was too busy filming - 'That Thing You Do.'

Isn't it great when Lily Sloane tries to kill Commander Data with her Calico M960 submachine gun?
This movie has many classic moments like when Data is captured and tormented by the scheming Borg Queen played by Alice Krige. She finds Datas ultimate soft spot by activating the androids human sensations. Feelings! Now the Queen bee can control the poor devil. She's rigs Data's emotion chip so tin man can't turn it off, now thats pure evil! Isn't it?
In truly epic style Data blurts out precisely what everyone else is thinking.
Data: Captain, I believe I am feeling... anxiety. It is an intriguing sensation. A most distracting... Picard: Data, I'm sure it's a fascinating experience, but perhaps you should deactivate your emotion chip for now.
Who were you rooting for? the Borg, Eastern Coalition or the USS Enterprise-E?
Who said? "The Enterprise-E is the most advanced starship in the fleet."
