Star Trek - Generations (Two-Di
There were only two ways for "classic Trek" cast members to appear in a movie with the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation: either Capt. Kirk and his contemporaries would have to be very, very old, or there would be some time travel involved in the plot. Since geriatric heroes aren't very exciting (despite a welcomed cameo appearance by the aged Dr. McCoy), Star Trek: Generations unites Capt. Kirk (William Shatner) and Capt. Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) in a time-jumping race to stop a madman's quest for heavenly contentment. When a mysterious energy coil called the Nexus nearly destroys the newly christened U.S.S. Enterprise-B, the just-retired Capt. Kirk is lost and presumed dead. But he's actually been happily trapped in the timeless purgatory of the Nexus--an idyllic state of being described by the mystical Guinan (Whoopi Goldberg) as "pure joy." Picard must convince Kirk to leave this artificial comfort zone and confront Dr. Soran (Malcolm McDowell), the madman who will threaten billions of lives to be reunited with the addictive pleasure of the Nexus. With subplots involving the android Data's unpredictable "emotion chip" and the spectacular crash-landing of the starship Enterprise, this crossover movie not only satisfied Trek fans, but it also gave them something they'd never had to confront before: the heroic and truly final death of a beloved Star Trek character. Passing the torch to the Next Generation with dignity and entertaining adventure, the movie isn't going to please everyone with its somewhat hokey plot, but it still ranks as a worthy big-screen launch for Picard and his stalwart crew. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The film opens in 2293, at the launch of the Enterprise-B. Commanded by Captain John Harriman, the helm officer is Demora Sulu - the daughter of Kirk's former helmsman, Hikaru Sulu. Since the ship's maiden flight is scheduled to be little ore than a brief trip to Pluto and back, it hasn't yet been fully equipped and doesn't have a full crew. All the same, Starfleet has invited the press and three 'living legends' for the occasion : Captain James T. Kirk, Captain Montgomery Scott and Commander Pavel Chelov. The short trip, however, is interrupted by a distress call from two refugee transports fleeing the El-Aurian homeworld - recently assimilated by the Borg. There is no option but for the under-equipped Enterprise to respond. Some of the refugees are rescued - the rescue, however, is not without its price. Among the surviving refugees are Dr. Tolian Soran, a scientist, and Guinan (later, a friend of Jean-Luc Picard's and barkeep on the Enterprise-D). Guinan reveals the energy strip to be an entrance to a place called the Nexus, a separate continuum where reality is based on the individual's desires.
Seventy-eight years later, Jean-Luc Picard's Enterprise receives and responds to a distress call form the Amargosa Observatory. The Observatory was apparently attacked by the Romulans - who, ot would seem, were attempting to retrieve some stolen trilithium. Once again, Soran is amongst the survivors.Read more ›
This new release of Generations,like the original crew set,comes in two discs,loaded with extras and in its' glorious widescreen format.
Generations,in case you didn't know by now,is a transitional movie.That is the Trek "torch" gets passed from the original crew onto the "Next Generation" from the TV series of the same name.
As I'm NOT a big Next Gen fan my perspective comes from being a fan of the original series and its' crew and this movie didn't disappoint.The movie while a very good Trek movie in plot structure and acting shines best when (and my bias may be showing just a little here) the original crew is on the screen.The opening of the movie is as exciting as any movie gets with Kirks' death/disappearance.When next we meet Kirk he and Picard have joined forces to defeat a common foe and to me William Shatner totally steals the show away from Patrick Stewart in their scenes together.And I STILL have trouble "keeping it together" when Capt.Kirk dies.
But it is not only just Kirks' death that bothers me but what it signifies;the end of a long and wondrous journey with the original crew characters from TV to the movies and in reality going from a cancelled TV show and its'struggle and success on finally getting to movies..... and seven at that! A very poignant moment indeed.
So,if you're an original series fan like me and want the perfect companion piece to all of the original crew movies then this two disc special re-release is for you.
If your a TRUE Star Trek Fan, and want to enjoy this film even more, you MUST get the three books written by William Shatner. The first book is "Ashes of Eden." It takes place just before "Generations" and has Jim Kirk battling between his long Star Fleet Career and the lack of action in any retirement. In it Capt. Kirk find that he is still called to save worlds, even in his retirement. It fills the gap leading up to the first part of the film. It is true Captian Kirk in action. This book could have been made into a Star Trek movie by itself and can stand alone.
The second book, "The Return", takes place right after the death of Jim Kirk with Spock at his best friend's grave. As from the title, we all want Jim Kirk to live and he does "Return."
You can stop after this book too, if you want to have Jim Kirk dead. (Yes, he dies at the end) But, hold the phone, he will live again in the next book, "Avenger" to save the universe again. This time he has new friends. It's Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the Enterprise TNG crew. Yes, Spock is logicly there to help Kirk(RET) save the universe again.
Read this and enjoy the movie even more.
