Editorial Reviews

Additional Features

Like all the previous Star Trek two-disc special editions, Generations is a significant improvement over the initial release, with an anamorphic widescreen picture and the first-ever DTS soundtrack for a Trek DVD. The audio commentary is by longtime Next Generation writers Brannon Braga and Ronald D. Moore, who were tapped to script the film. While they may not have the star power of the directors and actors who have done commentaries in this series, they do have a lot of insider TNG information and don't shy from admitting what they thought worked and didn't work (the technical talk is "definitely our show at its worst"). The four deleted scenes offer a more macho entrance for Kirk, a humorous bit with Data, a poignant scene of Picard's possible future, and an alternate--and duller--ending that has a slightly different outcome from the film. Not surprisingly, many of the other features have a strong Enterprise slant, including a history of the ship's lineage, a tribute to original art director Matt Jeffries, and examinations of the famous scene through storyboards and behind-the-scenes footage. --David Horiuchi

Product Description

A two-disc collectable box set containing exclusive bonus features, STAR TREK GENERATIONS - SPECIAL COLLECTOR'S EDITION fast forwards to the 23rd century, uniting crew members from the original series with the Next Generation crew. In STAR TREK GENERATIONS - SPECIAL COLLECTOR'S EDITION, a test run takes an unexpected turn 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 (Stewart) and the crew of Enterprise-D rescue an El Aurian physicist named Soran (McDowell). Unbeknownst to Picard, Soran harbors a deadly plan that includes the destruction of the Enterprise and millions of lives. Picard's only hope for a future lies within the Nexus.

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.

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 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.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Trek too far January 23, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
It always seems in these Berman-era Trek's,two things seem to always draw viewers.Time Travel & The Classic series.The latter was a plot point in First Contact,but Generations melded the classic crew and the Next Generation.The historical meeting of Captains Kirk & Picard is what Trekkers long for.The result is a convuluted extended TV episode,a very irksome Data,an impressive yet unnessesary destruction of Enterprise D ,and a very shoddy death of our beloved Capt Kirk.At first I liked it ,but thought it could've been better(Hey it's a start).As time went on it hasn't worn well,feeling more & more like it was made to manipulate fan expectation.No Berman era film has yet captured the big screen experience like the classic Trek films.Even bringing the Classic cast couldn't save Generations from its own mediocrity.
