‘Star Trek: Insurrection’ at 25: When Picard and the Enterprise crew found the Fountain of Youth

Often unceremoniously relegated to the lower-gauged tiers of “Star Trek” feature films, “Star Trek: Insurrection” deserves a respectful place at the table this holiday season as the Jonathan Frakes-directed installment in the sci-fi franchise celebrates its milestone 25th anniversary.

Released by Paramount Pictures on Dec. 11, 1998, “Insurrection” was the third film to showcase “The Next Generation” cast and came just two years after the unqualified critical and commercial success of “Star Trek: First Contact,” which is still considered one of the best entries in Hollywood’s long association with Gene Roddenberry’s “Wagon Train to the Stars.” Check out our streaming guide for Star Trek on where to watch all your favorite Trek shows and films.
