212 Squadron - "The Old Man's Eyes And Ears"
The backstory is that it's a mining ship that has been outfitted with Borg technology.
I get the feeling that I'd like the movie a lot more if I had been aware of the backstory before seeing it. I still remember thinking to myself that the movie was paced as if they cut out a lot of scenes just to make it more "summer blockbuster friendly". (I think it was LOAF who pointed out that the villian seemed to be more interesting than he turned out...?)
