Star Trek 9 - Insurrection (1998)

Once again the federation is in trouble, and this time the threat is the Son'a, and the group in need of saving the Bak'u - a small population in a desolate area of space, but a population nevertheless! The ideals of Starfleet, upheld by Jean-Luc Picard, clash with the prospects of progress, and even more so - immortality.

It starts with Data gone rampant on a routine reconnaissance mission. Piccard is brought in to bring him in, yet soon they discover things aren't all as they seem on the planet surface. They soon discover a cloaked vessel ready to transport the Bak'u away from their home, and that two sides of the same race are at war - though one doesn't even know it.

The script's clever with this one, and it seems Jean-Luc Picard might have found a match in the somewhat elderly Anij as well (played by Donna Murphy).

Inspiring relations come to life, and a new world is revealed. There are conflicts, resolutions, temptations, ideals put to the test, and bonds that ultimately transcend the hatred.

I think this might be one of my favorite Star Trek movies so far, though on the frontier of special effects it wasn't all that special. Maybe I like it because it takes place mostly on a planet surface - a beautiful planet, dreamy and exotic. Maybe it's a more relatable escape than that of the dark and all-consuming void. Or maybe I just like the story, and the idea of living forever. Either way, it was a great watch.
