Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
When Star Trek: First Contact came out I was relieved to see a Next Gen Trek film finally feature a real sense of threat and menace. And a lot of humor, too. Let’s not forget the lightness brought to the film by the great James Cromwell as the man responsible for literally propelling the human race into the future by inventing the warp drive.
It’s the first Next Gen film (and the only one, if we’re going to be honest) that has a sense of urgency to it and an honest to God sense of pulpy fun. Sure, it betrays some of the thoughtfulness of Picard by turning him into a guns blazing action type, but as a stand alone movie it’s probably the best put-together of that run of Trek films.
I’m headed out, on the road to New Orleans, but before I left I figured I’d better post this sucker up. It’s a great shot of Alice Krige as the Borg Queen, showing how they executed some of her FX work.
Thanks to Gus Weber for sending this one along! Enjoy.
Consider tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes Pic a divorce!
