Jack's Review of Star Trek: Generations
Alright, let's get right to it. This film, while fun in premise, is just bad. Easily one of the worst Trek films....Let me rattle off a few reasons why....

First, a captain as inexperienced as Harriman would never even get a command, let alone one as prestigious and important as the Enterprise. The emotion chip somehow swells to the size of a nickel. They reused a plot point from "The Mind's Eye" in using Geordi's visor to spy the goings-on onboard the Enterprise. There is no way the shield harmonics frequency would be displayed in 300pt text for anyone to see. That info is and has always been guarded information. If Kirk could survive in the Nexus without a ship, why did Soran need to do anything at all? Just fly out, beam into the Nexus...or just throw on an EV suit and float into it, and Bob's your uncle. Why can't Picard beat the snot out of one Aurian scientist? I mean, he killed a Klingon assassin once. If Picard could go find Kirk and somehow take him back to any point in time, why didn't he pick a more convenient time? Like before Soran set up his rocket? Or right before Kirk got blasted into the Nexus in the first place? Abduct Soran on board the Enterprise B and roll credits.

See? The film is a mess. Despite that, it isn't the worst....and that is saying something.
