The problem with Insurrection was that the story wasn't worth doing as a movie.
It was a big "WHO CARES"?
I don't understand why they just didn't dump it and start over with a new story.
Well the problem is the writer was Michael Pillar, who is a TV writer, not a movie writer, that is why the film seems more like an episode. The movie reflected ideas that Pillar was interested at the time.
