| Two Hours' Tempest in a 3-Minute Pot of Tea
While it has been remarked that "Generations" is the only Trek film that was ever meant to be a movie (meaning it doesn't really feel like an episode of a TV series), I still do not feel that is sufficient grounds for liking a movie that is this bland and stupid.

Here are the good things about this movie. 1) The ribbon looks pretty impressive. 2) Data swears a bit and sings a little ditty while scanning for life forms. 3) It ends. Nothing else is really worth seeing. Kirk seems to be saying, "Get me out of this franchise!" with each passing line, while Captain Picard's constant attempts at pathos are nowhere near as convincing as they proved in the series and the other movies.

Additionally, the naval holodeck scene at the beginning is nowhere near as funny as it was meant to be and the rest of the film is populated with new characters who are either dangerously gutless (the captain of the Enterprise-B) or disturbingly one-dimensional (Soran). Whoopi Goldberg gives an interesting performance, but, even coupled with the list of three that I gave above, it's still not enough to salvage this movie.

This is the only Star Trek movie I dislike, let alone hate.

Trivia

This was the first movie to have a Website created to promote it. The site was launched at generations.viacom.com on October 28, 1994, three weeks before the release of the movie. The site featured a graphical interface resembling the LCARS display of the Enterprise. Site content included: video of both versions of the movie trailer. audio clips and photos. cast and crew biographies. shopping from a catalogue of Star Trek videos on VHS (and a 1-800-number to call to order) a downloadable "interactive kit" with images and videos and a simple game. a fan survey on Star Trek favorites and on-line access. The website was mentioned on the NCSA "What's New" site, and quickly became one of the most popular destinations on the fledgling World Wide Web. This website no longer works.

Goofs

Data's emotion chip was previously seen in Star Trek: The Next Generation: Brothers (1990) and Star Trek: The Next Generation: Descent: Part II (1993), but it looked and operated very differently then. Also in Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987), Data didn't want to use the chip because it might have changed his personality to the worse - there was never an indication that it could "overload his neural net", which seems to be his only concern now.


Alternate Versions

Fox-TV version removes some footage: During the crisis on the Enterprise B, Kirk starts to stand a number of times to offer a suggestion and then thinks better of it, sitting back down. Scotty leans over after this happens a few times and asks if there's something wrong with his seat. Scotty's remark is deleted. After Riker orders the computer to remove the plank, causing Worf to be dumped in the water, his follow-up exchange with Picard is missing: Picard: "Number One, that's 'retract' the plank, not 'remove' the plank." Riker: "Of course, sir. [shouting over the rail] Sorry!"
