Trekking With Tim, Day Seven: Star Trek: Generations

by |


Where to start with this movie? Star Trek: Generations is almost totally impenetrable for much of its running time, before it takes a strange, elegiac turn toward the end. It does little to introduce Picard and the rest of the Next Generation crew, and it requires an absurd amount of insider knowledge. I can't say I liked it, or even understood most of it, though its ending helps to redeem it a little. Generations was released a few months after Star Trek: The Next Generation had gone off the air. The movie requires a familiarity with the characters -- something I don't have -- and the plot is hopelessly convoluted and uninvolving.Back to Article
