The Official Story

STAR TREK: FIRST CONTACT (1996)


 

Star Trek: First Contact is a 1996 American science fiction film directed by Jonathan Frakes (in his motion picture directorial debut) and based on the franchise Star Trek. It is the eighth film in the Star Trek film series, the second to star the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation. In the film, the crew of the USS Enterprise-E travel back in time from the 24th century to the mid-21st century to stop the cybernetic Borg from conquering Earth by changing their past.

After the release of Star Trek Generations in 1994, Paramount Pictures tasked writers Brannon Braga and Ronald D. Moore with developing the next film in the series. Braga and Moore wanted to feature the Borg in the plot, while producer Rick Berman wanted a story involving time travel. The writers combined the two ideas; they initially set the film during the European Renaissance, but changed the time period that the Borg corrupted to the mid-21st century, after fearing the Renaissance idea would be “too kitsch”. After two better-known directors turned down the job, cast member Jonathan Frakes was chosen to direct to make sure the task fell to someone who understood Star Trek.

The film’s script required the creation of new starship designs, including a new USS Enterprise. Production designer Herman Zimmerman and illustrator John Eaves collaborated to make a sleeker ship than its predecessor. Principal photography began with weeks of location shooting in Arizona and California, before production moved to new sets for the ship-based scenes. The Borg were redesigned to appear as though they were converted into machine beings from the inside-out; the new makeup sessions took four times as long as their appearances on the television series. Effects company Industrial Light & Magic rushed to complete the film’s special effects in less than five months. Traditional optical effects techniques were supplemented with computer-generated imagery. Jerry Goldsmith produced the film’s score.

Star Trek: First Contact was released on November 22, 1996, and was the highest-grossing film on its opening weekend. It eventually made $92 million in the United States and Canada with an additional $54 million in other territories, combining to a worldwide total of $146 million. Critical reception was mostly positive; critics including Roger Ebert considered it to be one of the best Star Trek films, and it was the most positively reviewed film in the franchise (93% of reviews were positive) until being marginally surpassed (94%) by the 2009 reboot film. The Borg and the special effects were lauded, while characterization was less evenly received. Scholarly analysis of the film has focused on Captain Jean-Luc Picard’s parallels to Herman Melville’s Ahab and the nature of the Borg. First Contact was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Makeup and won three Saturn Awards. It was followed by Star Trek: Insurrection in 1998.

BORG REGENERATION ALCOVE


 

A regeneration alcove, also known informally as a Borg alcove or simply alcove or slot, was a device used by drones for regeneration. When the Borg drones were not needed for immediate tasks, it was used as a drone storage device by the Borg Collective.

Design

It was the observation of Lieutenant Commander Data that “The technology required to achieve this biological and artificial interface is far beyond our capabilities.” (TNG: “Q Who”)

The alcoves themselves, were initially described as “slots along the wall, kind of like compartments. There are two Borg in each.” Data then theorized that “the Borg are somehow interconnected through these slots and are working collectively.” (TNG: “Q Who”)

A regeneration cycle could be interrupted without the drone ever knowing, using various technology that prevented the drone from “waking” when the cycle was interrupted. The Hansens used this technique to examine Borg drones by beaming a drone from its alcove to their ship. (VOY: “Dark Frontier”)

Each slot was designed for a specific Borg, and contained an access terminal which connected a coupling on the drone’s arm, and energy was allowed to be consumed. (TNG: “Q Who”, “I Borg”)

An alcove was sized to allow the drone to fit inside. It was sized slightly wider and higher than a drone, with a small raised platform for the drone to stand upon. A green disc large enough to accommodate the drone’s head was positioned at the height of the drone, pulsating visually with various patterns, some static and others dynamic, usually green and white in color. (VOY: “Dark Frontier”)

When the Borg drone stepped into the alcove it would stand upright. During the entire regeneration cycle a drone would primarily face outwards from within the alcove. (VOY: “Drone”; TNG: “Q Who”)

Once positioned into the alcove, a drone’s mechanical parts established a connection with the alcove’s systems (much the same way a doctor would monitor a patient with a biobed. The alcove then established a connection in one of two ways: either through a port resembling an arm rest onto which a drone would connect its arm, or by means of tubes which connected directly from the wall into various ports in the drone exo-plating. (TNG: “Q Who”; VOY: “Scorpion”)

When a drone’s cortical node malfunctioned a regeneration cycle could not be started. If a drone remained in an unregenerate state for too long, it lost motor control, and eventually became unconscious; a state very undesirable to the Borg. If a Borg drone was unable to continue to fully regenerate as it needed (due to injury or malfunction), it would be removed from its alcove by other drones and its components were salvaged for reuse. (VOY: “Dark Frontier”)

With knowledge of Borg technology, alcoves could be integrated directly into Starfleet vessels to serve the same purpose of their counterparts on Borg vessels. When this was done they would require over thirty megawatts of power to run each alcove. (VOY: “Dark Frontier”) Or if needed, a Borg drone could regenerate by means of a converted Federation power conduit which would function similar to an alcove. (TNG: “I Borg”)

The Truth

HOLLYWOOD PREDICTIVE PROGRAMMING

Predictive Programming is the concept whereby conspirators plan a false flag operation, they hide references to it in the popular media before the atrocity takes place; when the event occurs, the public has softened up, and therefore passively accepts it rather than offering resistance or opposition.

FALSE FLAG

A false flag is a covert operation designed to deceive; the deception creates the appearance of a particular party, group, or nation being responsible for some activity, disguising the actual source of responsibility.

SUBLIMINAL
adjective

(of a stimulus or mental process) below the threshold of sensation or consciousness; perceived by or affecting someone’s mind without their being aware of it.
