Storyline

In the late 23rd century, the gala maiden voyage of the newly-christened Enterprise-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 starship 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 succeeds out intact... but at the cost of Captain Kirk's life. 78 years later, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the Enterprise-D crew find themselves at odds with renegade scientist Dr. Tolian Soran... who is destroying entire star systems. Only one man can help Picard stop Soran's scheme... and he has been dead for 78 years. Written by Gregory A. Sheets <m-sheets2@onu.edu>

Goofs

When Geordi returns to the Enterprise-D after his capture on the Klingon Bird-of-Prey, he is seen talking to Data in sickbay. Geordi is wearing the older Starfleet uniform (yellow jumper with black shoulders) but in the next scene when he walks into Engineering, he is seen wearing the newer uniform with the colors inverted (black jumper with yellow shoulders). While it is true that B'Etor comments that "He bathed" and therefore it's possible he would have changed uniforms, that would not explain the reversal of colors. All his uniforms would have the same color scheme, either black with yellow shoulders, or yellow with black shoulders - not a mixture of the two. See more »

the hand-off
24 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

Retired Captain Kirk, Scottie, and Chekov are attending the maiden voyage of the new Enterprise with the media. They are surprised by a distress call. Kirk manages to save some of the refugees before losing himself to the energy ribbon. Two of the survivors are Tolian Soran (Malcolm McDowell) and Guinan (Whoopi Goldberg). Almost eighty years later, The Next Generation crew encounters Soran who is working with the Klingon Duras sisters for his own purpose of returning to the energy ribbon and Nexus.

This movie achieves the needed goals of the franchise. It gives Kirk a final curtain call, and it gives a satisfying hand-off between the old crew and the new one. Kirk is one of the iconic characters of not only Star Trek but all of sci-fi. This movie basically gives him two death scenes and they are both classic Kirk. The hand-off is needed for the Next Generation to take over the movie franchise. Granted, it works best for fans who have seen both series. For non-fans, the characters would still make sense but it wouldn't be quite so satisfying. The movie itself has enough technical babble and sci-fi action for those familiar with the franchise. It is a bigger expansion of the new TV series but it's not different.
