A disappointing discovery in the new year: Star Trek: First Contact was much cooler when I was 13. Maybe it's because the Borg are as close to horror as I like to get, but the film doesn't really work for me. Picard and his Borg PTSD? Manful Moby Dick angst remains bizarrely compelling. Zephram Cochrane plot? Still smack in the "meh" zone. Data and the Borg queen? OMG hives. Why, Trek screenwriters, why did you mess with success? The entire creeptifying Borg thing is the way they erase identity. So however deliciously evil Alice Krige is, it doesn't really work.
