FIRST CONTACT 12 Years Later

Ahh, nostalgia.

It was just a dozen years ago this week (November 18, 1996) that STAR TREK: FIRST CONTACT opened. Paramount's TREK franchise may have been at its zenith then, with multiple TREKs on TV and a movie with the best buzz since WRATH OF KHAN about to open.

Nostalgic G writes about the production, with plenty of video and toys and associated products (like FIRST CONTACT Rice Krispies). Worth a trip if you feel nostalgic. And here's hoping the new STAR TREK movie deserves praise like STFC did.

Hat tip to the kids at Trekmovie.

Thanks for the link and for the kind comments. First Contact was a great film, a lot of people think the TNG movies don't compare to the originals, and maybe the TNG era film had more misses than hits, but this one was just perfect.

You know what's funny? I was going through my reader and this popped up and the first thing I thought was "I should email Mike about this!"

Then I looked and saw it was FROM you.

Mark sleep now.

One of the best Star Trek-films ever.
