Consensus: Generations stands as a mediocre changing of the guard for crews of the Enterprise, with a dull plot that sometimes seems like an expanded episode of the television series.

Leonard Klady

Star Trek Generations has enough verve, imagination and familiarity to satisfy three decades' worth of Trekkers raised on several incarnations of the television skein.

Generations is predictably flabby and impenetrable in places, but it has enough pomp, spectacle and high-tech small talk to keep the franchise afloat.

The one major drawback to this film is its summary dismissal of Captain Kirk from the Star Trek universe. The torch that is supposedly being passed between generations here is little more than a fizzled matchstick.

Mostly, Generations spends its running length searching for, and never completely finding, its niche.

From the opening shot of a champagne bottle floating in space to the pulsating ribbon of an engulfing Nexus, the film's images dazzled me.

A two part TNG episode that never fully takes advantage of it's film medium. The acting is overall decent and the visuals are entertaining to look at.… More
