Storyline

In the late 23rd century, the gala maiden voyage of the third Starship Enterprise (NCC-1701-B) boasts such luminaries as Pavel Chekov, Montgomery Scott and the legendary Captain James T. Kirk as guests. But the maiden voyage turns to disaster as the unprepared ship is forced to rescue two transport ships from a mysterious energy ribbon. The Enterprise manages to save a handful of the ships' passengers and barely makes it out intact... but at the cost of Captain Kirk's life. Seventy-eight years later, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Enterprise-D find themselves at odds with the renegade scientist Tolian Soran... who is destroying entire star systems. Only one man can help Picard stop Soran's scheme... and he's been dead for seventy-eight years. Written by Gregory A. Sheets <m-sheets2@onu.edu>

Goofs

The apparent or implied speed of the ribbon changes tremendously throughout the movie. Judging by the way it's passing over Veridian III, it's obviously moving at a very small fraction of a speed of light. An object moving at near light speed (not to mention warp) would be well clear of the planet in less than a second (much less than a second for warp speed). The fact that the ribbon's trajectory was so significantly altered while already inside the Veridian system also indicates a small velocity. On the other hand, the ribbon traveled from Amargosa to Veridian system in just a few days, if not hours, which requires warp speed. Not a high warp, though, because the Enterprise could easily beat it to Veridian, but still, many times the speed of light. However, Data says that the ribbon "passes through our galaxy every 39.1 years", which suggests that it moves outside of the Galaxy in that time frame, and that requires ultra high warp - beyond Enterprise's capabilities.

User Reviews

A not so bad produced movie, good directing, acting, but however somewhat unrealistic plot and story
7 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

Star Trek Generations is a good movie. It has good direction, excellent lighting photography, ie, look out for the ten forward sun rays beaming into in, the new bridge and its lighting. The acting was excellent, by both captains and especially Data. Also Malcolm McDowell portrayed his role ok.

The idea of a 'nexus' is somewhat inconceivable to exist. However I suppose they chucked into this movie to make the movie. The special effects were exceptional, the set construction and location were ok. The directing was somewhat over done if you get what I mean, there were some seldom unnecessary extremes for a simple shot, however genuinely sound. The aforementioned lighting was well done by the director of photography or lighting director.

I really can't lift this movie up any higher, it was a good big bang start for the next generation cast's introduction to the big screen, but it didn't struck a chord in me. Even the death of one of Star Trek's main icons didn't have that magic as like it did with Spocks death in Star Trek II, however it was somewhat sad.

The movie sort of carried on like on the premise of Star Trek The Motion Picture, a big budget movie, weak plot which really spoiled, no, killed, this movie. It has more things positive on the technical side than on the contents side, acting, story etc.

The fantastic however too long sequence of the ship crashing into the planet was probably the best climax of the movie. The humour in it was not bad.

Overall rating, 7/10
