It's softer than this, but that's a good example. It felt TNG movies had to bend over backwards to account for the dramatic changes in the Star Trek universe while still wanting to tell a story completely unrelated to it. So you have Worf and the Defiant fighting the Borg in First Contact and they mention the Dominion in Insurrection. But, other than that, the uniforms made as much an impact as anything else. But I do agree it's the next closest and the ties to each other were kind of cool.
