A nice lighting job doesn't save a lackluster script full of plotholes and too many subplots better saved as television episodes.

I've always been a fan of Star Trek, primarily on the small screen, but this silver screen crossover for THE NEXT GENERATION crew -- with a bit of baton-passing from select members of the classic cast -- didn't quite work for me after its wonderful 20-minute, big picture opening with the (apparent) death of legendary Captain James T. Kirk. Over the course of the picture, we learn that Kirk isn't dead, that he sucked into a temporal Nexus, where he can emerge and help save ... life as …

Since another original-cast movie was out of the question, the first 17 minutes of Star Trek VII was the next best thing.

Generations Blu-ray box art
Star Trek Generations is not a bad movie.   I'm starting this review by saying that because it's the truth, but Generations had one major flaw that was almost disastrous to the Star Trek franchise...Captain Kirk gets killed.  I don't care whether he, as the Klingons would say, died gloriously in battle, it was cheap and it was screwed up.  Take away the not so glorious death of the greatest starfleet captain of all time, and you have a great film that finally introduces the crew of …
