Star Trek: Insurrection (1998)

Recommended Posts

There are three HDTGM Trek films: Star Trek V: The Final Frontier aka the one where God bums a ride, Star Trek Into Darkness aka the one where Cumberbatch really was Khan and Star Trek: Insurrection aka the one where the aliens needed Starfleet to violate the Prime Directive for plastic surgery reasons.

Paramount wanted a "funny Trek" and boy did they get it.

This is the Trek movie from which we get the "Shake It So" meme

Synopsis from  IMDb: "When the crew of the Enterprise learn of a Federation conspiracy against the inhabitants of a unique planet, Captain Picard begins an open rebellion."

Sounds straightforward but what we really got where a villainous, plastic surgery-obsessed alien race who all looked like Katherine Helmond in Brazil

We got Picard CTRL+ALT+DELing Data by singing Gilber & Sullivan

We got Troi and Beverly technically passing the Bechdel Test with this dialog: "Have you noticed your boobs have firmed up?"

We got Riker shaving his beard, taking a bubble bath and using a video game joystick to fly the Enterprise.

This movie is a collection of insane ideas.
