Star Trek: Insurrection

{5/5} “Do you remember when we used to be explorers?”

Star Trek: Insurrection, released in 1998

Data has been part of a Starfleet mission on the planet of the Ba’ku. But Admiral Dougherty contacts the Enterprise-E asking for Data’s specifications, because Data has gone rogue and fired on his comrades. Dougherty tells Captain Picard not to come, but Picard goes anyway. He will retrieve Data and get to the bottom of what’s going on, eventually finding out that Starfleet is involved in a mission he can’t support.

It’s about living in the moment, and not following orders that are immoral.

The first scenes on the Enterprise with the officers just talking with each other are glorious. There are some very funny parts.

Written by Rick Berman (Star Trek: First Contact) and Michael Piller (a bunch of episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation).

Stars LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, F. Murray Abraham, Donna Murphy, and Anthony Zerbe. Directed by Jonathan Frakes (Star Trek: First Contact).

The music by Jerry Goldsmith is beautiful. “The Children’s Story” is an astonishing new theme.

This is the 4th or 5th time I’ve seen it.
