Taken from the back cover
Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) and the Next Generation crew engage in their most thrilling adventure yet – a sci-fi action event that "stands proud and apart" (Richard Collins, Time) They call themselves the Borg, a half-organic, half-machine collective with a sole purpose: to conquer and assimilate all races. Led by their seductive and sadistic queen (Alice Krige), the Borg are headed to Earth with a devious plan to alter history. Picard's last encounter with the Borg almost killed him. Now he wants vengeance. But how far will he go? Co-starring Alfre Woodard and James Cromwell and bursting with special effects.


Like most DVDs, the film has been sectioned into chapters, similar to tracks on a CD.
