Don't forget the Quark cameo that was (thankfully) left on cutting room floor.

Sunday Trek marathons are a wonderful thing.
Yeah...personally I've had a horrible past few days because of stupid crap that's going on in my life so this is nice.

Which movie was supposed to have a Quark cameo?? Insurrection?

Quark traveled to the Ba'ku planet wanting to build a spa or something. I think the footage showed up someplace. (SE DVD maybe?)

I'm sure the Ba'ku were thrilled to have a Ferengi in their midst.

That scene would have been so wrong.

The whole point was that the Ba'ku wanted to live alone and undisturbed. The Federation was intruding on their lives in order to make a profit. Having Quark show up at the very end as a joke would have meant that nothing changed and that the Ba'ku were doomed sooner or later anyways.

I'd give you a hug, too, but my wife is watching. How about a pat on the back ? Hang in there.

This.

Agree.
I think I'd have to agree too.
Gotta disagree. I'm a shameless TOS partisan, but I even I won't go that far. TFF is the bottom of the barrel as far I"m concerned, and First Contact is immeasurably better than it. Hell, Insurrection and Generations are better than TFF. (I don't feel qualified to comment on Nemesis, since I've only seen it once, several years ago.)

I suspect this was the reason the for scene's exclusion.

I dunno I would have loved that. And big fat random slap in the face after watching the whole movie

Re: Best movie to watch?

First Contact gets my vote as well. I get the criticism of Picard acting out of character. Perhaps his rage would be more understandable if he hadn't already encountered the Borg two additional times after his Locutus experience. He didn't seem to be flying off the handle in "I Borg" and "Descent." Granted there seemed to be a lot more at stake in First Contact and perhaps at this point he was just fed up with the Borg. His character didn't really detract from the movie in my opinion.

He was shown to deal with his rage in I Borg. And in Descent, they never encountered the real Borg.

This was the first time after Best of Both Worlds that Picard confronted the actual Borg collective again. Got haunted by voices in his head and nightmares. They attacked Earth a second time and he was again the ONLY one that stood between mankind and the Borg. And he was fighting a losing battle.
