Overview
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 Corliss, 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 to get it? Co-starring Alfre Woodard and James Cromwell and bursting with spectacular special effects, Star Trek: First Contact is one action film that "has it all" (Jim Ferguson, Prevue Channel).

Insert the second disc of the DVD set and on the Main Menu select the entry 'The Star Trek Universe.' On the following menu screen highlight the entry for 'Jerry Goldsmith: A Tribute' and then press the 'Right' arrow key on your remote control. This will highlight a small Borg sphere. Press 'Enter' now and you will see a four-minute clip of actor Ethan Phillips discussing his uncredited cameo as the maitre'd in the film, accompanied by behind-the-scenes footage and another uncredited cameo from writer Brannon Braga during the same scene.

To get to the second hidden feature, go back to the discís Main Menu and select 'The Borg collective.' On the following menu screen highlight the menu entry for 'Main Menu' and press the 'Left' arrow key on your remote control to highlight another Borg sphere. Press the 'Enter' key and you will see a four-minute scene deconstruction narrated by art director Alex Jaeger, in which he discusses the development of the death of the Borg Queen, along with some behind-the-scenes Polaroids of test shots.

Another Easter Egg can be found on the Main Menu of the second disc. Highlight the entry 'Production' and then simply press the 'Right' arrow key on your remote control to highlight a Borg sphere, which will then give you access to some clips of alternative titles for the movie which were created during the production of the movie.
