Alternate timeline, people. Nero and Spock Prime's arrival and actions means that things won't go the same as in the Prime timeline. Stop raging about "IT'S DESTROYING CONTINUITY!!" when it's happening in a different timeline and is having no effect on the events of TOS, TNG, DS9, and VOY.

The events of ENT still happened, since it was before the point Nero and Spock Prime cane in, but considering what that series did to established continuity we should pretend ENT never happened.

/also, Trekkies can be more insane about pointless shiat than Sonic fans, Final Fantasy fans, and Star Wars fans

fusillade762: Oh, and just try putting Insurrection in your queue with Netflix. They don't even have it. That should tell you something.


NeoCortex42: Mugato: FuturePastNow: But, if Soran had done that, we wouldn't have been treated to the Federation's flagship being destroyed in the most embarrassing manner possible.

And if Picard left the Nexus and went to where he first met Soren and threw him in the brig instead of 5 minutes before the rocket launch....well I guess they wouldn't have a movie.

I can deal with a movie having a few dumbass moments or internal inconsistencies, but Generations is built out of them from the ground up. The script should have never been approved as it was.

Trying to figure out a way to connect the old cast with the new one was bound to be full of contrivances.


How they should have done it:

fusillade762: Gunther: fusillade762: Rotten Tomatoes Rankings of Star Trek Movies

Apart from Insurrection and the most recent one being overrated (Insurrection is farking horrible; worse than V even, and the reboot was good but not THAT good), those rankings seem pretty accurate.

Heh. My mom has burned through all the Trek series (except DS9, having trouble getting her to watch that one for some reason) and has started on the movies. She watched First Contact the other night and said she thought it was "stupid". She's now watching Insurrection and says she likes it better that First Contact. She'll probably *love* Nemesis.

Just glad taste in movies isn't genetic.


I don't get the hate for insurrection, I liked it

JJ Abrams "Star Trek: A Generic Space Movie" reminds me of the no bake cheese cakes that my ex sister in law usually make. Sure it's tasty but it's only empty calories, taste like you're eating paste and there's no thought required in making the cheesecake.

BTW the last decent Star Trek movie they made was "The Undiscovered Country".

PsyLord: NeoCortex42: FirstNationalBastard: rewind2846: NeoCortex42: And they blew up the Enterprise (as opposed to crashing it because they let the ship's therapist drive).

All she had to do was drive the saucer section away! All that three dimensional space out there and she couldn't avoid a planet?

/women
//lol

Then, in Nemesis, she crashed the Enterprise E.

Women drivers still suck in the 24th century.

/except Ensign Ro, and the DS9 broads.
//But Janeway? She couldn't even figure out the concept of connecting a timer detonator to a bomb!

Speaking of Ro and DS9, I sometimes still wonder how much better DS9 could have been if the original plan to carry Ro over had gone through instead of the actress bailing.

I'm not even sure how that would work out since Ro basically backstabbed Picard ("The Federation") and joined the Maqui. So having her as the head Bajoran at DS9 that would then have to interact with The Federation would be pretty awkward.


I'm sure if she had accepted the role, then Preemptive Strike wouldn't have been written. Ro would have been offered a position by the provisional government and that would have been that.

All that said, I liked Kira, and the fact that she had a backstory with Odo and Dukat made for some very interesting drama.

Mugato: GAT_00: Mugato: Seems high, doesn't it?

Seems low.

Ugh, Generations? That movie was a mess. Made no sense at all and Kirk's death (spoiler) was appalling.


I still don't get the rules of the nexus. They initially get into it by being on the Enterprise-B when the nexus runs into it. Yet the villain needed to blow up a solar system to get back instead of parking a shuttle in its path.

fark J.J. Abrams sideways with rake. That man is responsible for putting out some of the worst offenses to writing I've ever seen. The man makes his living selling sheer, unmitigated crap. Oh, sure, he's good at hooking people, but he sucks at follow-throw.

J. J. Abrams: "Look! Look, I've got a pile of crap here!"
Fans: "My god, look at it, it's beautiful. Let us fawn over it incessantly."
[less than halfway into the series/movie]
Fans: "What the farking fark? This is CRAP!"
J. J. Abrams: [trollface]
