Star Trek: The Next Generation Movie Rewatch: Insurrection

The TNG Movie Marathon continues with Ryan Britt's look at Star Trek: Insurrection, which he likes a lot more than I did. *wry grin*

An excerpt:
But Data can’t carry a Star Trek story alone, which is why TNG has Captain Picard, a character who is awesome at giving speeches about why future humans do things the right way and how he will never be down with turning a blind eye to random immoral shit just because it’s convenient for some space politicians. Here, he gets one of his best (and one of my favorites) when he lectures his superior—Admiral Dougherty—on the relative morality relating to the forced relocation of the planet’s population. “How many people does it take before it becomes wrong?” Picard chastises with the Patrick Stewart I’m-a-good-person-and-you’re-not bravado that truly defined his version of Star Trek.

Also up are Emily Asher-Perrin's take on Generations and my take on First Contact. Look for Chris Lough on Nemesis on Friday.
