Star Trek Insurrection

In Star Trek Insurrection: The United Federation of Planets is ravaged after the Dominion war. A fountain of youth nestled in the green hills of an alien planet seems too good to be true. What must it be like to never grow old? So the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-E leaps to the rescue. Captain Picard steps in and refuses to let a peaceful, ancient civilization get hi-jacked by the Son'a led by the really freaky guy, Ru'fau. The Son'a wrinkly faces took a lot of trouble creating a flying holodeck ship, just to spare the Ba'Ku's feelings. All the Ba'Ku had to do was get with the program but no. Picard sticks his beak in and discovers Anij's special abilities slow time. Could the environmental anomalies be stimulating Data's instincts to act rebelliously?

Filming began on March 31, 1998 and concluded on July 2. According to Johnathan Frakes, (who playsCommander Riker) half of the time shooting was spent on location. The scenes where the crew of the Enterprise and the Ba'Ku take refuge in the mountains were shot on location in the Sierra Nevada in locations which could only be reached by helicopters. Wheres Scotty when you need him? Why didn't the Enterprise just lock on everyone's co-ordinates and beam them there? Duh!!!

 'Jean-Luc, we're only moving 600 people'

 Who were you rooting for? Picard's crew? Dougherty? Ru'afu? or did your heartbeat slow in time for the Ba'Ku?) Why is Worf feeling aggressive tendencies?

Live Long and Prosper, Trekkers and Trekkies.
