Cast overview, first billed only:
Com Officer


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 her maiden voyage turns into a 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>

Did You Know?


Sets used for the Enterprise-D bridge scenes are supposedly identical to those used in Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987), upon closer examination however, there are two extra crew stations in the movie, one on either side and just to the aft of the main part of the bridge. See more »


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 »

Star Trek: Matriarchy
6 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Spoilers Ahead:

Well, did you like seeing how far we have come from the Icon of the 60s James Tiberius Kirk? You could beat on him all day; three or four guys at a time, he gets back up on his feet bloody and bruised. Then, he kicks your butt. Look, what we have here. A bald, emaciated, little baby girl that cries like she lost her dolly. Well, I can tell you one experience Rene will not have to endure: seeing Uncle Jean Luc crying like a little baby girlie who wet her panties. What a sight! See, ladies we do not find this endearing like you do; as the instrument of castration Troi looks on approvingly. We do not call it vulnerable; to us, and all real men it is neutering. This was preceded by the sailing ship where we were taught that it is funny to push men into the water but very wrong and inappropriate to do so to a woman. Their crew is so pathetic. We have the token Klingon castrated just enough to no longer be threatening to the matriarchy. God help this country if we are ever attacked with these men to save us. Soren is the only person capable of acting in the movie. How I wished he would unleash a little of the old ultra-violence on this cast. Yes, Data the worst stand up comedian in the universe. I would have fixed that emotion chip quickly for him.

Could I ask a question? If you could travel anywhere temporally, why on earth would you go to a moment where the physical battle's outcome was problematic? Any person with a working brain would have gone into the distant past where Soren was alone and helpless; years before any of this was taking place. I can answer it for you. Because they would have to kill him, Trekkies cannot do that sort of thing, that is a no no. We saw that in Insurrection where never mind if the particles would help trillions of other people; we are not allowed to use force for good. We might hurt someone's feelings. See, if by progressive, instead of my word decadence, the word is inaccurate unless you mean progressing off the side of a cliff suicidally. Could Kirk's death have been more insignificant and ignominious? I am not a Trekkie, Thank God, but I grew up with Kirk. This is the death scene you wrote for him? Contrast to Spock's noble death in Wrath Of Khan. What a piece of crap this movie was!! You can see why most of the original crew refused to be in it. Why Shatner allowed the Icon that he was to be sullied like this is beyond me.

Watch some of the original episodes, please. The sight of the Icon with Baby No Tears who has the temerity to lecture all of us on death. Gee, leave that to the warriors amongst us, stick to playing with your dollies. If I had weeped like a three year old little girlie, I would not presume to speak about death to anyone. How do you think the Kirk of the 60s would have reacted to weepy baldy? The movie is to the TNG crew what Star Trek 5: God Wants Out Of The Movie was to the original crew. Nemesis was bad but it had lots of action and excitement; this is boring, maudlin, emasculated and features the pathetic death of a legend of the 1960s that boys like myself grew up wanting to be; we did not choose emaciated, weepy, bald weaklings. The movie is a minus 100.
