The Star Trek Next generation team were ace in this film. Patrick Stuart, as always is the best captain and with Star Trek you can be sure that if the borg are around the movie will be interesting.
It would take ages to say thanks to all the stars but they were all first class.
The music, effects, make up and story was excellent too.

Yep, too bad this draft never made it to be a movie :DJacob (3 out of 10 )
It was a pretty great movie. But this is a horrid draft. The humour and tension of the movie has been drained away. The unique characters from the past also dissolved. Unfortunately a lot of stupid elements from this draft that were cut from First Contact resurfaced in later Star Treks. The joystick-piloting-a-starship thing comes back in ST:IX and the Borg-Cubes-Dying-in-the-dozens thing appeared again and again in Voyager. The actual movie did seem to preserve this draft's wretched dialogue from the Borg Queen unfortunately. Sean (5 out of 10 )
I love the movie but this draft is missing the films most epic theme: Picard's PTSD. His dream scene cut, his scene of drawing the line here and no further, the portion where he goes against Alliance orders to fight the borg all missing all important. Also Worf is on the crew in this script. Shouldn't he be captaining his own ship at this point? The script of the actual film great, this one not so much.Powerslave (6 out of 10 )
This script is NOT how the movie actually went. There are many things that are incorrect, and did not even happen. This must have been a first draft.Karl (7 out of 10 )
While the final script is surely better than this one, it would have been nice if the scope of the initial battle with the borg before they traveled back in time was more like the one in this script. It never did make much sense to me that they only sent 1 cube, and this is supposed to be their big assault on earth? If 1 cube can do that amount of damage to an armada of ships, why would they not just send half a dozen cubes and bypass the whole playing with history thing? Given the borg are all about control and certainty, why would they want to delve into messing with the timeline if they could just take earth in the present day? The only answer to that is the one offered by this early draft script- the federation actually could defend itself against more than 1 single cube.Platitude (7 out of 10 )
Interesting, but definitely glad that they made changes. The final film is much better than this. I saw in an interview once that a lot of the changes were made because of input from Patrick Stewart, he wanted Picard on the ship. That was a good call.
