Right up there with Star Trek IV The Voyage Home and the 2009 blockbuster, this is a Trek film with mass appeal. Lots of action, lots of laughs, easy to follow plot, great guest cast, impressive special effects. In the Enterprise-E's screen debut, the Borg travel back in time to stop Earth's first warp spaceflight and prevent first contact with the Vulcans--in effect preventing the formation of the Federation and assimilating the whole Alpha Quadrant unchecked. Luckily, this crew knows a thing or two about fighting Borg.
This DVD release is missing all the special features found on the 2-disc Collector's Edition, but has added new ones. The Blu-ray version of this release has all the old and new extras, but if you still do plain DVDs and want the best extras the 2-disc is the one to choose. Some of the new extras are worth seeing, probably the best is the ILM feature, but the new commentary is a real waste of time. The commentators had nothing to do with the making of the film, and aren't very informative or entertaining. The Trek Roundtable is also a "why did I pay for this?" feature. I did like the Academy Briefing but thought it could have been expanded some.
If extras aren't your thing, this release is just fine. The new menu screen is pretty nifty. Hardcore completists will either want both versions or go for the Blu-ray; the rest of us will likely stick with the Collector's Edition.

"This is one of the best Star Trek movies ever. Good humor throughout, just like Gene R. liked to make. Still miss him!"
