Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

There were only two ways for "classic Trek" cast members to appear in a movie with the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation: either Capt. Kirk and his contemporaries would have to be very, very old, or there would be some time travel involved in the plot. Since geriatric heroes aren't very exciting (despite a welcomed cameo appearance by the aged Dr. McCoy), Star Trek: Generations unites Capt. Kirk (William Shatner) and Capt. Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) in a time-jumping race to stop a madman's quest for heavenly contentment. When a mysterious energy coil called the Nexus nearly destroys the newly christened U.S.S. Enterprise-B, the just-retired Capt. Kirk is lost and presumed dead. But he's actually been happily trapped in the timeless purgatory of the Nexus--an idyllic state of being described by the mystical Guinan (Whoopi Goldberg) as "pure joy." Picard must convince Kirk to leave this artificial comfort zone and confront Dr. Soran (Malcolm McDowell), the madman who will threaten billions of lives to be reunited with the addictive pleasure of the Nexus. With subplots involving the android Data's unpredictable "emotion chip" and the spectacular crash-landing of the starship Enterprise, this crossover movie not only satisfied Trek fans, but it also gave them something they'd never had to confront before: the heroic and truly final death of a beloved Star Trek character. Passing the torch to the Next Generation with dignity and entertaining adventure, the movie isn't going to please everyone with its somewhat hokey plot, but it still ranks as a worthy big-screen launch for Picard and his stalwart crew. --Jeff Shannon

Product Description

In Star Trek: Generations, it's the 23rd century, and retired Starfleet officers James T. Kirk (William Shatner), Montgomery Scott (James Doohan) and Pavel Chekov (Walter Koenig) are guests of honor aboard the newly christened Enterprise-B. A test run takes an unexpected turn, however, when the starship encounters two vessels trapped inside the Nexus, a mysterious energy ribbon. During a perilous rescue attempt, Kirk is swept out into space. Seven decades later, Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) and the crew of the Enterprise-D rescue an El Aurian physicist named Soran (Malcolm McDowell). Unbeknownst to Picard, Soran harbors a deadly plan that includes the destruction of the Enterprise and millions of lives. Now Picard's only hope for a future rests within the Nexus...and a legendary captain from the past.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great transition! September 6, 2002
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Star Trek Generations is simply a great transition movie, handing the torch from Captain Kirk and crew to Captain Picard and crew. While not living up completely to what we the fans wanted, that doesn't really matter. That is the case in most of the movies. Especially the odd numbered ones for some strange cosmic reason. We all knew the Galaxy Class Enterprise 1701-D had to go. It was simply not made for the silver screen. I was personally hoping that more of the original series crew could've made it for the opening sequence. The scenes between Kirk and Picard were very well done. If I remember correctly, this was also the first time that we'd heard Captain Sulu's first name. Patrick Stewart once again showed the depth of his acting abilities with the death of his character's brother and nephew. It's a little disturbing to see Captain Picard basically recieve a beating from Soren. After watching Kirk fight many a people and win over the years. Malcolm McDowell, Soren played a very good, tortured villain. And yes, Captain Kirk said in Star Trek V The Final Frontier that he always knew he'd die alone. And that was the case, he was alone in the sense the Spock and McCoy weren't there. The way Kirk died did seem a little melodramatic for the character. Overall though, a very good transition movie. I would suggest that if you'd like a few more of the details, I believe you can still get a copy of the book. It does bring to light some of the things that were glossed over on the screen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Boldly going where ST: TOS went before September 7, 2004
Format:DVD
Boldly going where "Star Trek-The Original Series" had gone before, "Generations" allows us to watch the passing of the torch. The Next Generation cast took the big screen but not center stage in the first feature of this television series. The real attraction here was the death of a beloved Trek icon-Captain James T. Kirk. As the film begins Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner) along with former crewmates Scotty (James Doohan) and Checkov (Walter Koenig) are along on the ride for the launch of the newly commissioned Enterprise-B. When two ships signal that they need help, the Enterprise-B, despite the fact that it hasn't been outfitted with the rudimentary defense mechanisms, is ordered to help the two troubled passenger ships. New Captain John Harriman (Alan Ruck) reluctantly zooms to their aid. With news cameras from every network on Earth covering the launch of the ship, Kirk feels compelled to step in and help the inexperienced crew save the lives on the ships in distress. Unfortunately, Kirk appears to be killed in the process.

About 80 years later the crew of the USS Enterprise is celebrating the promotion of Lt. Commander Worf on the holodeck, Captain Jean Luc-Picard receives some disturbing news during the celebration; his nephew, brother and sister-in-law have been killed in a fire. The celebration is cut short when the Enterprise is ordered to help a research station under fire from Romulans. As the ship arrives, they discover everyone on the research vessel dead except Dr. Tolian Soren (Malcolm McDowell). It turns out that he is the cause of the attack and he's develop a dangerous new weapon that can cause a sun to go nova within minutes. He plans on using it to somehow harness the power of something called the Nexus ribbon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best Trek film, but very underrated October 10, 2004
Format:DVD
As a theatrical movie, "Star Trek Generations" fails - it feels more like a long TV episode - mostly due to the re-appearance of the Duras sisters. This was, quite possibly, the worst aspect of this film. They're fun characters, but their presence, let alone villainy, is hardly on the same level as General Chang (Star Trek VI).

The commentary and special features also point out tha some dr Sorin/Geordi torture scenes were cut. This is a shame as this would have added much a needed sense of "We hate your guts" to Sorin, who is more or less a character we'd much rather give our pity to because of his plight!

Guinan is also awkwardly handled. Remember, her and the El Aurians' had escaped the Borg. Just how far were they travelling before the Federation found them, on their doorstop no less? (I'm assuming an earlier (unseen) hailing had the El Aurians told Starfleet who they were, as it makes no sense for Starfleet to otherwise know what species this is.) Anyway, Guinan says it's impossible to get back into the nexus and that she has to live with it and Sorin must be convinced of it. But in the same scene she says that to Picard, she also says "If you go in, you won't want to leave" - so we now know Picard will be going on.

In short, the plot is a mess and the revised ending gives Shatner to deliver a nice speech at the end. (Fortunately, we get to see the original ending, which is good as the original ending is far more dramatic, and ironic.)

And why aren't the trailers included?! Couldn't Paramount have waited an extra week or two for the clearances to be approved? Given the amount of 'deleted scenes' material, it seems goofy that a trailer couldn't be cleared.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ambitious and High-Concept Sci-Fi (for Grown-Ups only) October 4, 2006
By Wuchak
Format:DVD
THE PLOT: In the 23rd century Kirk is presumed dead but is actually thrust into the "Nexus," a mysterious dimension of perpetual bliss where time has no meaning. In the 24th century Captain Picard also enters the Nexus. He meets and convinces Kirk that they must leave their unreal paradise and go back to the 24th century to prevent Soran, a man bent on returning to the Nexus at all costs, from destroying an entire solar system and millions of lives.

ANALYSIS: Before seeing this film I heard highly contrasting reports: Some claimed it was one of the best Star Trek films while others, like Trek-spert Mark Altman, lambasted it as an incredible soporific dud. I've also heard it referred to as "merely passable." Well, I've seen the film about four times now and my respect grows with each viewing. I can certainly see WHY some don't like it or don't 'get' it: "Generations" has some (apparent) plot holes and some things aren't spelled-out or explained very well (So what? Doesn't mystery intrinsically come with the territory of space adventure?); plus the story is just plain convuluted.

Regardless, I feel "Generations" is ambitious, high-concept sci-fi of the highest order; it leaves the viewer with many interestng questions to ponder long afterwards. Although the Nexus has beeen criticized as a mere gimmick to get Kirk and Picard together, I find the concept utterly fascinating: No matter how much we want it, an illusory paradise is just that -- an illusion. As far as I'm concerned, the concept of the Nexus and its implementation into the storyline is nothing short of brilliant.

3.0 out of 5 stars ok as a link to the past and TNG
So much prelude and not enough melody. Ok to acknowledge Kirk and relay to the new cast. Storyline not strong enough for two hours.
