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 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>

Trivia

Interestingly, when Picard is relating his family's history, he mentions that he was often told about a Picard who fought in the Battle of Trafalgar. Picard is French, and the Battle of Trafalgar (fought at a Spanish port) was a catastrophic loss for the French, and a decisive British victory. The combined French and Spanish fleet lost twenty-two of their forty-one ships in the battle, without inflicting a single loss on the British. So why the Picards should choose to mention their presence in a battle that was such an emphatic defeat, much less their descendants doing so centuries later, is unclear. (Unless Picard was a French royalist émigré fighting for the British, which is not ruled out here.) See more »

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 »

User Reviews

A childhood favorite of mine.
31 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

I always loved this movie. From the very first time I saw it, at the age of 10, I absolutely adored it. It took a big risk, admittedly, in bringing the Original Series and TNG together, but I believe it did it extremely well and with a lot of ingenuity.

The first part of the movie seems to pick up where "The Undiscovered Country" left off; and it does so on a somewhat sour note. Retirement does not sit at all well with Captain Kirk, and he hates the idea of being a "legend" and having the namesake of his beloved ship run by a bunch of inexperienced kids and a skeleton crew (the running "tuesday" gag is hilarious). I think Walter Koenig and James Doohan were marvellous in the first part of this movie, and the scene where they arrive on deck 15 and find themselves staring into the void of space is chilling.

After this, it picks up with the Next Generation Crew, and boy, does the camera love the Enterprise D. It's emotional to see the crew going through the changes this movie throws at them, and by the time Geordi's kidnapped and Data's emotions are uncontrollable, my heart was in my throat.

It's also a pleasure to see Whoopi Goldberg reprise her role as Guinan, and as far as humor goes, Data's newfound sense of humor had me on the floor.

I LOVED Picard and Kirk's interactions and the segment in Kirk's cabin is an absolute hoot. (Picard: "This is not your bedroom.") Soran is a great villain, truly ruthless and threatening. Out of all the Next Gen films, this is probably my favorite. It has an atmosphere about it that's very appealing to me, and the only other TNG film that had the same feeling was Nemesis, which I still maintain was a DAMN good movie.
