The Borg travel back in time intent on preventing Earth's first contact with an alien species. Captain Picard and his crew pursue them to ensure that Zefram Cochran makes his maiden flight reaching warp speed.
The Enterprise is diverted to the Romulan homeworld Romulus, supposedly because they want to negotiate a peace treaty. Captain Picard and his crew discover a serious threat to the Federation once Praetor Shinzon plans to attack Earth.
On the eve of retirement, Kirk and McCoy are charged with assassinating the Klingon High Chancellor and imprisoned. The Enterprise crew must help them escape to thwart a conspiracy aimed at sabotaging the last best hope for peace.
In the late twenty-third century, the gala maiden voyage of the newly-christened U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-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. Seventy-eight years later, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-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 seventy-eight years.Written by

Guinan and Soran are El-Aurians, as Soran puts this, "a race of listeners". The name derives from the Latin word "auris", meaning "ear". See more »
When Geordi and Data are looking at Data's emotion chip you can clearly see LeVar Burton's eyes through Geordi's visor. As he raises his eyebrow while emoting to Data's dialog, the lighting, which is more indirect and from above, filters down between his face and the visor back-lighting the visor and making his right eye visible. As he turns his head slightly you can also see his left eye, but not as clearly. See more »

Fox-TV version removes some footage: During the crisis on the Enterprise B, Kirk starts to stand a number of times to offer a suggestion and then thinks better of it, sitting back down. Scotty leans over after this happens a few times and asks if there's something wrong with his seat. Scotty's remark is cut. After Riker tells the computer to remove the plank, causing Worf to be dumped in the water, his follow-up exchange with Picard is missing: Picard : "Number One, that's 'retract' the plank, not 'remove' the plank." Riker : "Of course, sir. [Shouting over the rail] Sorry!" See more »
Star Trek:Generations rarely receives the credit it is due, and is generally written off as another one of the 'odd numbered' films. It's saving grace, however, is the fact that it contains many significant events in Trek history- The destruction of the Enterprise D, the death of Lursa and B'Etor, who held recurring roles in TNG and DS9, and the introduction of Data's emotions chip. One of the noticeable fumbles is the uncertain uniform change. The crew of the Enterprise randomly dons either the TNG uniform, or the Pre-First Contact DS9 one. Basically, Generations views more like a glorified episode than a movie. I would say that it is a good episode, ushering out the 7 year old Enterprise D, paving the way for the sleek new Enterprise E, as seen in "First Contact." The uniform issue is also solved in the next film, as the crew wears all new ones, eliminating the mix-and-match. If you have not seen Generations, watch it with the expectations you would have for a normal TNG episode, and you'll be pleased. Fans had to wait for a 'movie quality' feature, but the next film "First Contact" was well worth the wait.
