Re: What was the point of FC?
FC was very entertaining (more so than any of the other TNG movies IMHO). Thinking too much about time travel stories usually ends up being rather unsatisfactory, I think. It's fun but you can always find plot holes somewhere along the way. Obviously, they're more obvious in some cases than in others. But then this isn't a high concept science fiction movie, now is it?
