Re: is star trek first contact best star trek movie

First Contact is the best Trek movie because it puts the prophecy of Trek into the mouths of Picard, Geordi, Riker and Troi without feeling preachy while the post WWIII and Borg background created a good contrast to this self-reflexive "we will tell Cochrane what humankind should aspire to do, what Star Trek basically is" theme.
It is not easy to get such contrasts right, it can easily feel forced and inharmonious but in the case of FC it somehow worked.
