About the Movie

Stardate: the 23rd Century. 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 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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Generations is predictably flabby and impenetrable in places, but it has enough pomp, spectacle and high-tech small talk to keep the franchise afloat. – Peter M. Nichols, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: Star Trek Generations has enough verve, imagination and familiarity to satisfy three decades' worth of Trekkers raised on several incarnations of the television skein. – Leonard Klady, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Here is a movie so concerned with in-jokes and updates for Trekkers that it can barely tear itself away long enough to tell a story. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Mostly, Generations spends its running length searching for, and never completely finding, its niche. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Jun 10, 2008

Missed Classic

An opportunity blown. Two icons of pop culture, Kirk and Picard, meet but this doesn't soar. While Kirk's knowing eye twinkle matches Picard's knowing nod when they join forces and that alone is worth the price of admission; when the writers kill off Kirk not once, but twice and you still aren't moved, wow. And why would Picard, aged mid-fifties at the time, let Kirk, evidently in his mid-seventies at the time, run off in his girdle to fight the bad guy in the desert? Of course he'll be killed. If Bond is ever killed he needs to die at the hands of the likes of Goldfinger, not some second rate late 80's villain. Same goes for Kirk. He needed to be killed by the likes of Khan, not this no-namer with hard-to-fathom motivation. Bummer. Also interesting: by connecting the old crew with the new (underrepresented without Spock and McCoy), the difference is really interesting. The old crew's scenes sparkle with a crackling energy and verve despite being a geriatric ward, while the new crew seems wooden and rather bland. Love Picard and his posse, but you can't do much when you compare them to the holy grail of the first crew.

good movie, bad sound

this is a great movie, but i suggest buying the dvd. the sound quality of the mpg isnt that good, and during scenes with loud music, you can barely hear people talking

A Generation's Finest Trek

An excellent first film for Captain Picard and his crew as they fight a madman bent on destroying a solar system. Along the way Picard turns to the one man that can help him... Catain James T. Kirk, long presumed dead. With Kirk's help Picard plans to stop the terrosist and reset time so that his crew is not killed. A fine movie with incredible thrills, great scope, and a thrilling musical score. The one downside: The Chekov and Scotty parts were obviously written for Spock and Bones
