Originally this was going to be a story/episode used on the Next Generation TV show. Next Generation was winding down after being a hit show for seven years. However, the idea to make it a motion picture and introduce the Star Trek Next Generation Cast to a movie audience as the Star Trek torch is passed on from one icon to the next became the main idea.
Yes indeed! For this movie has the Legendary Captain James Kirk meet the outstanding Captain Jean Luke Picard.
IN the 23rd Century, Captain Kirk, Commander Chekov and Engineer Scotty "see" off a brand new USS Enterprise that has replaced theirs. (and wind down their Star Fleet Careers) An energy storm has stranded a series of transport ships with people aboard. The strange energy storm is called the Nexus from people screaming out over the communications being broadcast on the Enterprise-B's audio system.
Even with the warp power drive of the Enterprise-B is not powerful enough to escape the great energy storm for it becomes engulfed then stranded in the strange Nexus. Unable to escape, Captain Kirk tries an idea to reverse the engines warp drive and cause a deflector beam to force out the Enterprise-B from the raging storm. As the people from the stranded transport ships are transported aboard, one alien named Soran is fighting his way wanting to return to the Nexus and is rendered unconscious by Chekov helping perform rescue operations.
After all the people are free from the Nexus, Kirk performs his idea of aiming the deflector beam into the storm, the results: a freed Enterprise-B, but Kirk is lost as a section of the star ship is destroyed by the Nexus and he is presumed killed.
78 years later on Enterprise 1701-D, Captain Jean Luke Picard and First Officer Commander William Riker are introduced. When the Next Gen cast is introduced into the movie, they find out it is this mad being Soran who was rescued 78 years earlier, is planning a major experiment to re-enter the Nexus but the results of his mad experiment: is that it will destroy an entire star system in doing so.....with the climax leading up to Captain Kirk meeting Captain Picard in a total surprize adventure ending.
A Paramount Picture Directed by David Carson RATED PG 1994 117 minutes
I REMEMBER WHEN THIS WAS ON THE BIG SCREEN I COULD NOT WAIT TO SEE IT.STAR TREK GENERATIONS WAS THE BEST STAR TREK OF ALL.TAKING THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS AND PUTTING THEM BOTH ON ONE MOVIE ALSO SCOTTYS LAST MOVIE APPEARANCE.A MASTERPIECE CAPTAIN KIRK HIS LAST FIGHT AS CAPTAIN PICARD WITNESSED HIS LAST BREATH.AS THE ENTERPRISE WAS DECIMATED.THE SCENE WHERE THE SAUCER SECTION CRASHED ON THE PLANET BELOW THE SPECIAL EFFECTS WHERE OUT OF THIS WORLD.I THINK EVEN WORF GOT SHOOK UP!THE ACTION WAS NON STOP THE STORY LINE IS UNMATCHED IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES OF THAT YEAR A TRUE STAR TREK PHENOMENON.ONE STILL TO THIS DAY HAS STAR TREK FANS TALKING ABOUT.THIS DVD IS WORTH GETTING.
If anyone has never seen this movie, get it and get on board the Starship Enterprise and travel with one of the best loved crews in the Star Trek Experience. This DVD is one of my favorites (but they are all my favorites) The cast is just as they were in the series and you even see Tovak as part of the bridge crew from Voyager, but without his Vulcan ears. The Captains of the mighty Enterprise are all the best and top notch and were wisely choosen for their parts in the wonderful series. Take a look, take a ride, and chart unknown regions of space right from you TV. 100++/
I was excited to see the 1st Star Trek movie that focused on "The Next Generation." I was NOT happy that 'Kirk' had to be in this one, too (geeeze). I like the original series, but TNG, at that time, was my favorite. As it turned out, the crossover was a great idea. I especially liked the scenes in the Nexus, which focused more on the characters themselves. After several viewings, I do get a little bored with 'Mr. Scientist', but the interrelationships among the Next Generation crew never disappoint. I have seen this movie many times, and I never get tired of it.
I grew up watching the original TV series and enjoyed watching the original crew of the NCC-1701 evolve and transform (thanks to computer graphics and special XF). This movie is the "Changing of the Guard" where two Captains of the Starship Enterprise are brought together to stop a common foe. It was a shame that not all of the members of the original crew under the command of Captain Kirk were in this movie, I guess it's for the best. The most exciting, realistic and unbelievable part was the destruction of the NCC-1701D.
