Oh, wow. Those lyrics work absolutely perfectly for both the Borg and Picard and Data's experiences with them. Wonderful, wonderful work.

This is a really great vid. I love the way you've dug into Picard and Data's experience throughout First Contact here. It's beautifully cut together and incredibly sad.

Oh, wow...I'm going to have to watch this again (and again!) So much going on in this vid. I love the focus on the connections between Data and Picard.

Oh wow, this is really well done. I love the way you managed to twist the familiar meaning of the lyrics with the clips, and the narrative you've excavated here. I've always thought First Contact is one of the best Trek movies, and you show why.

A First Contact vid! This is a thing of great joy! Disturbing and lovely, and such a clever song choice.

I wasn't sure I was going to be able to follow this because it's so long since I've seen these episodes -- but I had no trouble at all. The song choice is perfect, and you weave the clips beautifully to show the pain and connection and redemption for and between Data and Picard. <3

From: [personal profile] skywaterblue
Wow, at first I thought this was an awful idea but you made it work amazingly well. (Possibly because I was expecting not a solely First Contact vid. First Contact is awesome.) It turns out this song would work awesomely well for all sorts of zombie flicks.

That opening refrain! The seeds were planted! I particularly liked "like a cancer silence grows" with Picard's tinkering Ahabian madness. Every refrain perfectly matched - and that sequence with 'arms' and the patch of skin... just, yeah. Amazing work.

Indeed it would! I found myself surprised that the song fit so well, but it's really just due to it being classic, I think--the meaning can shift over time. Thank you so very much.

From: [personal profile] rhivolution
Thank you! I came up with the idea first, as [personal profile] sweetestdrain asked for Data, then basically just set my iTunes on shuffle. I ended up with Emiliana Torrini's cover of The Sound of Silence, but her tone wasn't quite right, so I went back to the original. It fit so well that I just had to go with it.
