Movie Review

Star Trek Generations (1994)

Star Trek Generations (1994) has two of the greatest captains of Star Trek Universe, Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner) and Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart), and a compelling story of a rogue scientist who threatens to destroy the galaxy, time travel and an extra-dimensional realm called Nexus, yet the film comes out as a mediocre and nothing a star trek fan will love.

The film opens in the year 2293, where retired Starfleet officers including Captain Kirk have onboard as guests to the maiden voyage of USS Enterprise-B, unfortunately, due to a mishap, Captain Kirk loses his life in saving the ship. Then the film progresses to 2371, where the crew of USS Enterprise-D under Commander William T. Riker, are role-playing as seafarers of the olden days when the Enterprise receives a distress call from an observatory in the Amargosa star system. Going into action there, Captain Picard gets dragged into a situation involving space and time, where he meets the (assumed to be dead) Captain Kirk – who both have to now work together in saving a whole planetary system and its inhabitants.

Jonathan Frakes as Commander William T. Riker, Marina Sirtis as ship’s counsellor Commander Deanna Troi, Patrick Stewart as Captain Jean-Luc Picard and William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk
