    •  Coincidence (6+ / 0-)

      I watched that film last night. I guess I missed the movie/part of the show where Picard was a Borg. For some reason, I thought going into the movie that this is where Picard first meets the Borg, rather than human's first contact with aliens. So where did the whole Locutus plot line get played out? I thought the movie's pacing matched the TV show's pacing quite well. Frakes (Riker) directed it, so I guess that would explain that. For me, it didn't have the oomph and epicness that Wrath of Kahn had.
