Star Trek: Insurrection is the ninth movie in the Star Trek film series, released in 1998.Joining forces with some unsavory Rubber Forehead... and face... Aliens offering their friendship, The Federation decides that the Prime Directive is suddenly optional so that they can relocate the new-agey Space Amish inhabitants of a paradise planet. After all, Utopia Justifies the Means, right? The Enterprise crew uncovers the plot and rebels against Starfleet (hence the title) to save the day.With bigger guns, the rekindling of the Riker/Troi romance, and a (generally) in-character TNG cast, the movie is a far cry from Star Trek: Generations, clearly crafted to resemble the TV show. In this endeavor, they succeeded all too well — The script is a retread of the TNG episode "Who Watches the Watchers?", and the "alien planet" leaves a lot to be desired, despite the producers having $10 Million more to play with than in First Contact. It is considered by some to be among the worst of the Trek films, though not without its merits.With lackluster returns, it was later decided the TNG cast get one final adventure.
