Why did the UK theatrical release of First Contact have bonus footage?
From Memory Alpha:
In the UK theatrical version of the film there were two scenes that were cut from subsequent VHS and DVD releases; One taking place after Worf is transported over to the Enterprise-E, where he refuses medical treatment from Dr. Crusher and demands to be taken to the bridge, and an extended scene on Earth where Zefrane Cochrane asks Geordie La Forge about his eyes. This appears to be the only evidence of cut material; no deleted scenes have surfaced or been officially released.
