Writers Brannon Braga and Ronald B. Moore are recorded together on this chat track (always a bonus) and they delve into the details of this the first Star Trek film they were asked to write. They take us through the initial meetings with Rick Berman and also point out the differences between working on the Tv show and working on the big screen. I actually came away from this filmm forgiving the film for doing so many stupid things with characters (datas humour for one example)as Brannon and Ronald explain the changes that have been made in this and other films. They get on very well and this commentary is highly recommended for Star Trek fans, Film fans, and just people that want to be entertainted by two intellingent and funny guys

This is a very good commentary. The film itself is controversial among fans, statements range from best to worst of the films.
What I like best about this commentary is how Brannon Braga and Ron B. Moore reflect on their decisions when the film was made. They are often self-critical escpecially in later parts of the movie. The viewer will understand that the writers didn't have an easy job. They tell what it was like to set up The Next Generation on the big screen, how they managed to combine old and new and that they, a little too often, wanted to show something unexpected.
But the commentary is not all about writer's stuff, you also get to know technical backgrounds from production and trivia.
It's quite entertaining, too.

I found it pretty entertaining and one of the best Star Trek DVD commentaries.

A competent but unremarkable commentary. Moore and Braga begin the track talking in a very structured and cohenrent way, imparting some great information. By the middle of the track, though, there are only digressions. Their self-criticism, mentioned by others here, is somewhat of a mixed bag. Some of it very candid, but during much of the time they adopt a derisive tone clearly just for fun, which is annoying.
