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>

Malcolm McDowell was so taken with the line "Time is the fire in which we burn.", he had it engraved on the pocket watch he uses in the film. See more »

Goofs

When Data and Geordi look at Data's emotion chip, which is supposedly suspended in a forcefield, the long close-up shows by the wobbling of the rotating chip that it is hanging from a string. The difference in motion is unmistakable. See more »

Stodgy end for the original crew
14 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

STAR TREK: GENERATIONS was widely heralded as the cross-over movie that featured crews from both the original 1960s STAR TREK along with the cast of STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION. Unfortunately it's pretty much a failure on both counts, coming across as a particularly stodgy extended TV episode.

The problem with the original cast is that there are only three of them, and the biggies (Nimoy, Kelly) are missing. Meanwhile, Doohan and Koenig only get a few scenes in the beginning. Shatner does better, but even he's kept off-screen for a great deal of time, leaving this a shambles. Personally I was left waiting for his return as the film inevitably picks up whenever he's around.

The stuff with the new crew is largely embarrassing, particularly a never-ending sub-plot involving Data getting an emotion chip which leads to some of the lamest, most embarrassing comedy ever. It just has no place in a film like this, and it feels like the writer was just attempting to fill up the running time. Patrick Stewart is equally wasted, moping about with his non-existent family. At least Malcolm McDowell gives a decent turn as the villain, and the film's pretty entertaining when it focuses on him and Kirk; so the first half hour and the last half hour are the decent bits, and the rest is rather dull, silly, and stodgy.
