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

In the introduction of the TNG Enterprise bridge crew, we see them enjoying sailing on the holodeck version of the schooner USS Enterprise (that was launched in 1799). Geordi first shows his love of old naval ships in "Elementary, Dear Data" (season 2, episode 3). Geordi builds a replica of HMS Victory for his former captain. See more »
It was said that the rocket Soran launches would reach the Varidian sun in 11 seconds. This would be impossible because the rocket does not have warp capability to allow it to travel the speed of light. And if the sun were so close that the rocket didn't need a warp engine, then the planet could not have an atmosphere to be able to sustain life (even though uninhabited, there was vegetation).

[the journalists are all talking at the same time, trying to get their questions in]
How does it feel to be back on the Enterprise bridge?
Captain Chekov, what are the most significant changes...
Captain Kirk, can I ask you a few questions?
Did you participate in the redesign?
We'd like to know how you feel about being...
I appreciate the...
Excuse me. Excuse me. Excuse me. There will be plenty of time for questions later. I'm Captain John Harriman and I'd like to welcome you all aboard.

When Worf explains the workings of 'trilithium', all his words were overdubbed. In the filmed scene (and in the novelization), Worf simply says that trilithium is a very powerful explosive. In the actual film as seen in theaters, Worf's overdubbed lines now say that trilithium is a "nuclear inhibitor" which can stop all nuclear reactions within a star. See more »
Lets see--Star Trek, the Next Generation takes place about 80 years in the future from the end of the original's series movies. How do you provide continuity?--Why time travel, of course! Jeeze, this has been done to death! The writers of the TV series were much more original in bringing Scotty into the future with hi-tech mumbo jumbo about a rigged transporter. I thought movie script writers were paid more money and could at least come up with something on par with TV, but alas No(sadly, the same thing could be said of the "Star Trek" movie writers in general). And lets face it--Spock was supposedly still alive when "STTNG" occurred, so wouldn't he have liked to know his great friend was still alive?
I know Nimoy did not take part in this movie, because he did not think the role was "meaty" enough and his absence was sorely felt. It would have been very entertaining to see a match up between Data's machine logic and Spock's Vulcan logic.
