“- Data: Sir, does tactile contact alter your perception of the Phoenix?

“Star Trek: First Contact” quotes(1996)
Plot – On the Enterprise that is patrolling the Cosmos, Captain Picard is informed that the Federation has started a battle against the Borg who are heading to Earth. Violating the orders received, Picard feels the threat, but soon after the Borg try to travel through time, when the Earth was living a very delicate period, the second age of darkness after the Third World War. The crew of the Enterprise arrives in Montana in 2063, on the eve of the historical first contact between humans and extra-terrestrial and, after that, the creation of the United Federation of Planets, that is Star Trek. After many difficulties and severe clashes with the Borg and their cruel queen, Picard is able to prevent the action of the enemy. The Enterprise goes back to explore the infinite space.
