CBS All Access has added two new Star Trek movies to its streaming service.
Star Trek IX: Insurrection and Star Trek X: Nemesis can now be streamed by those subscribing to the CBS All Access service.
These are the final two films to feature the cast from Star Trek: The Next Generation. All four films featuring the Star Trek: The Next Generation cast are now available on the streaming service.
CBS All Access is the future home of new Star Trek television series Star Trek: Discovery. CBS is hoping to turn CBS All Access into a one-stop destination for everything Star Trek. So far they’ve done a good job of that in regards to television, having already added the full runs of all six previous Star Trek shows: Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: The Animated Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise.
CBS All Access began adding Star Trek movies in April. Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, Star Trek VII: Generations, and Star Trek VIII: First Contact. Star Trek: The Motion Picture has since been removed from the service.
Interestingly, Amazon Prime now features more Star Trek movies than CBS All Access. Amazon’s streaming service now features the first nine Star Trek movies: The Motion Picture, Wrath of Khan, Search for Spock, The Voyage Home, The Final Frontier, The Undiscovered Country, Generations, and Insurrection. Nemesis was apparently left out of the deal.
More details on Star Trek IX: Insurrection and Star Trek X: Nemesis follows below.
In Star Trek: Insurrection, a Federation mission to the planet Ba'ku takes a dangerous turn when a malfunctioning android, Data (Brent Spiner), takes a cultural task force hostage. When Capt. Picard (Patrick Stewart) and his crew investigate, they uncover the truth about the Federation mission: It was actually a systematic ploy by the Son'a to displace the peaceful inhabitants of Ba'ku. Now Picard and his crew must thwart the plot even while experiencing strange side effects from exposure to the planet's surface.
Released in 1998, Star Trek: Insurrection was the ninth Star Trek movie and the third to feature the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation. The film also starred F. Murray Abraham, Donna Murphy and Anthony Zerbe. The film was directed by Michael Piller from a script by Piller and Rick Berman.
In Star Trek: Nemesis, Capt. Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) diverts the starship Enterprise from its scheduled trip to Cmdr. Riker (Jonathan Frakes) and Counselor Troi's (Marina Sirtis) wedding to negotiate a peace treaty with the Romulans. Picard is shocked when Shinzon (Tom Hardy), the new Praetor of the Romulans, admits to being a clone of him. When the crew members discover a break-in on their computer, they are forced into a life-or-death battle to stop Shinzon's Warbird before it can destroy the Earth.
Released in 1998, Star Trek: Nemesis was the tenth Star Trek movie and the fourth and final film to feature the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation. The film also starred Tom Hardy. The film was directed by Stuart Baird from a screenplay by John Logan, based on a story by Logan, Rick Berman, and Brent Spiner.
