The Official Story



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.

Star Trek: First Contact (1996) – Borg Queen final scene



The Borg Queen was the name given to the entity that existed within and served as a central nexus for the Borg Collective. Her name was coined by the Federation scientists Magnus and Erin Hansen, who discovered her existence. (VOY: “Dark Frontier”)

There were multiple Borg Queens, although they appeared to share a personality. (Star Trek: First Contact; VOY: “Dark Frontier”, “Unimatrix Zero”, “Unimatrix Zero, Part II”, “Endgame”)

As of the 2380s, at least some Borg cubes contained a queencell, which in turn contained a spatial trajector reserved for the Queen in the event of an emergency. (PIC: “The Impossible Box”)

In 2401, an atypical version of the Borg Queen beckoned Jean-Luc Picard to a region of space, where she expressed the desire to join the Federation. This Queen was originally from an alternate timeline and had merged with Dr. Agnes Jurati in 2024. (PIC: “The Star Gazer”, “Penance”, “Mercy”, “Farewell”)

Role and personality

The Queen defined herself as: “I am the beginning, the end, the one who is many. I am the Borg.” Although this suggested she was an individual within the Collective, while addressing Borg drones as “my drones”, she was not an individual. The purpose of the Queen was to bring order to chaos. (Star Trek: First Contact)

According to Seven of Nine, “The Borg Queen has a kind of transtemporal awareness. It bridges into adjacent times, realities. They hear echoes of themselves, of— of each other.” (PIC: “Penance”)

In accordance with the Borg pursuit of perfection, a blending of the organic and synthetic, very little of her original humanoid form remained. Her face and upper torso were organic while the rest of her body, including her skull and spinal cord, were synthetic. Because of her disembodiment she saw herself as the epitome of perfection. The Queen had her own chambers within the Borg Unicomplex from which she could oversee and control the Borg via the command interface. Whether she had her own ship or not is unknown, but she used different Borg vessels to travel, such as a Borg cube, sphere, or octahedron. When her physical presence was not necessary her organic part resided above this chamber while her synthetic parts were stored below it, under the floor. If she desired to do so, both could be brought together, and in doing so, created a humanoid form for herself.

In Human terms, the Borg Queen could be characterized as ruthless. She would do anything to protect the Borg Collective. Where drones showed no emotions, the Queen herself did. When necessary, she would employ psychological tactics, like extortion or plain intimidation to get what she wanted. The Queen even displayed self-preservation, such as when she was held at gunpoint by Captain Janeway, who threatened to kill her. On a personal level, she considered Seven of Nine her favorite drone, because the Queen considered her to be unique. (VOY: “Unimatrix Zero”, “Dark Frontier”)

The death of a Borg Queen, while traumatic to drones in the immediate vicinity, did not seem to affect the Collective or its hive mind as a whole. Borg drones were capable of functioning without a Queen for any length of time by forming a Hive mind of their own. (Star Trek: First Contact; VOY: “Unity”)

It was thought by Federation exobiologist Erin Hansen that the Borg Queen functioned like the queen of an insect hive, to coordinate the drones. Evidence of this was later seen when the Queen countermanded the Collective’s judgment about assimilating Voyager in 2378. While the Collective felt that assimilation was warranted, the Borg Queen countermanded them and justified the decision due to the fact that Voyager didn’t compromise their security. (VOY: “Endgame”)

The Queen, while providing coordination for the drones she commanded, also provided other functions such as regulation of the Collective’s transwarp hubs and interspatial manifolds. She effectively brought “order to chaos” for all things. (VOY: “Endgame”)


The Truth


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.


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.


(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.
