Star Trek Generations Reviews
After we saw such a lovely farewell to the cast of the original series in The Undiscovered Country, now a handful of them are dragged back out again. They are shoved in here for some odd reason. I?m not sure if it was out of a desire to give William Shatner one more moment in the sun, or if they feel audiences actually needed to see a handoff from Kirk to Picard, or what motivated this decision. I remember being so excited to see the new cast finally take over the big screen, and then found the disappointment of this film that makes most of them second fiddle to the Captains. There?s a problem when you?re watching a Next Generation film and Guinan has more to do than Riker. I haven?t seen all the Star Trek films yet, but I?ll be shocked if any of them are as bad as this one.
Picard meets Kirk, Kirk's death, exploding stars, Klingon space battles, exploding planets, the destruction of the Enterprise, Picard crying, the Enterprise crashing into a planet, Christmas scenes, hand-to-hand fighting scenes in the desert, Scotty!, hostage negotiations, the holodeck putting the crew at sea, new uniforms, new communicators!
It's every Trek fan's wet dream!
