I joined this site JUST so that I could leave a review of this commentary track and turn others on to it. It is by far the best commentary track I have ever heard.

Director Jonathan Frakes (who plays Riker) and Marina Sirtis (Troi) comment on one of the worst Star Trek movies--and they are clearly stoned out of their minds. Marina Sirtis does not remember what happened in the movie, admits she skipped most of the filming to drink and watch the World Cup, and constantly makes fun of how useless her character is. She refers to Patrick Stewart as her "Cappy," and in the climax of the movie totally fails to understand what is actually happening on the screen. Frakes is equally goofy throughout--but really Sirtis is the star of this track.
