After my experiences with the neck brace, as a medical doctor, a motorcycle rider, and a crash victim, I feel I have an obligation and a duty to tell everyone about this device. A neck brace, like a helmet, should be an essential part of your gear. I wore it religiously every day after receiving one as a birthday present from my family, already having seen a range of motorcycle neck-injuries in casualty. I then had my first practical experience with the brace, a severe, life-changing accident that left me with two broken hands and a severely broken right wrist, putting me out of action for four months.
Share1 Shares Star Trek is nothing short of a cultural phenomenon. Whether it was a television series or a film series, Star Trek always made quite the impact. It inspired many space operas, and even offered bizarre ideas for NASA to study.
This list will heavily critique the greatest of all Star Trek films. Controversy, criticism, praise, and many other types of discussions have all stirred up through the completion of these films.
And hopefully this particular film series will continue in the future. Nemesis After the Enterprise is diverted to the Romulan planet of Romulus, supposedly because they want to negotiate a truce, the Federation soon discovers that the Romulans are planning an attack on Earth. Nemesis is the final installment of the Star Trek: The Next Generation film franchise, and also the final Star Trek film featuring an original cast.
The Motion Picture When a destructive space entity is spotted approaching Earth, Admiral Kirk resumes command of the Starship Enterprise in order to intercept, examine and hopefully stop it. A highly anticipated installment since the series cancelled, Star Trek: The Motion Picture is the first Trek film ever produced.
It certainly seems to me that there was a lot of good effort put into making this film, and a lot of heart from those who had true passion for its mythology. It felt more like an overlong episode as there was nothing theatrical-worthy about it.
But one should applaud its beautiful visuals, great cinematography, and amazing score by the legendary Jerry Goldsmith. For us fans, it The great trek nice to see the old crew back in action. Generations Captain Picard, with the help of supposedly dead Captain Kirk, must stop a madman willing to murder on a planetary scale in order to enter a space matrix.
Generations the first of its series succeeds over The Motion Picture also the first of its series because of its massive scope. There was always a sense of urgency, danger, and obligation, something that The Motion Picture seemed to lack, but kept trying for anyhow.
Insurrection When the crew of the Enterprise learns of a Federation plot against the inhabitants of a unique planet, Captain Picard begins an open rebellion. Insurrection features a great script, beautiful acting most notably by F. The film also contains a plot that seems more suited for an episode rather than a feature length movie.
But as Insurrection starts lifting its pace, it becomes a thrilling tale of a Federation captain struggling against his duty for his personal moral outlook in humanity. There is enough in here to please fans of The Next Generation, but not enough to satisfy too many others.
The Enterprise crew must help them escape to thwart a conspiracy aimed at sabotaging the last best hope for peace. The final installment is budded off of what was by far the worst Star Trek film ever produced — The Final Frontier.
The Undiscovered Country is a more than welcome addition to the film series, offering perhaps the best character-driven drama since The Wrath of Khan. The Undiscovered Country is more of a mystery film than it is science fiction.
Probably not, but at least Leonard Nimoy directed a film worth being told. Trekkies would appreciate this film more than non-fans. The Voyage Home To save Earth from an alien probe, Kirk and his crew go back in time to retrieve the only beings who can communicate with it, humpback whales.
The Voyage Home felt almost like a parody of itself, featuring a bizarre story under its rusty hood, but it did so in a way where The Voyage Home showed deep respect for the Star Trek mythology in the same time.
Embracing these qualities, The Voyage Home should definitely delight anybody even newcomers. Spock keeping him in check as a vengeful, time-traveling Romulan creates black holes to destroy the Federation one planet at a time.
Possibly the most action-packed, thrilling, exciting, humorous, entertaining, and most unrealistic Star Trek film of them all. It offered very intriguing questions of science, commonly using the suspension of disbelief.
Was it a bad move? Star Trek is perhaps the best Trek film in a long, long time. First Contact Captain Picard and his crew pursue the Borg back in time to stop them from preventing Earth from initiating first contact with alien life.
It offers a genuine struggle unlike its predecessor, enhancing its plot with engaging action sequences and intriguing character interactions.
First Contact is also the first film of The Next Generation franchise to move at a controlled rate. But what made this film so captivating was its plot. Non-fans and Trekkies would equally, and easily, enjoy First Contact. Not exactly your ordinary fable of revenge, The Wrath of Khan is told greatly through the eyes of Khan Noonien Singh played perfectly by Ricardo Montalban.The Ferengi / f ə ˈ r ɛ ŋ ɡ i / are a fictional extraterrestrial race from the Star Trek universe.
They first appeared in "The Last Outpost", the fourth episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation in , during which they made first contact with the United Federation of Planets in on the planet Delphi Ardu, though they had been mentioned in the series' pilot, "Encounter at Farpoint".
