Star Trek Generations by J.M. DillardThe story begins with the launching of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-B and the mysterious disappearance of Captain James T. Kirk. Then, seventy-eight years later, Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D receives a distress call from a remote scientific observatory.
Picard learns that a newly developed superweapon has been stolen by a desperate scientist with an insane plot. Facing the most difficult task of his career, Captain Picard must seek out the one person with the power to help him, a person long thought dead: Captain James T. Kirk.
Together, the two captains are tested as theyve never been before. And both men are forced to make the greatest sacrifices of their careers to save countless millions from a madman with a plan for mass destruction.
It's strange. Like I said, it's been a few years since I last watched this Netflix conveniently marks the date as sometime in March '08, which would've been about a month after I wrote my first ever review for the A.

With the continuing success of Star Trek: The Next Generation on TV screens, it was clear that after the swansong that was Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country , the baton needed to be passed from the original Star Trek crew and onto the new kids on the block. However, the trick would be to sate fans of the original series, whilst also appealing to the younger audience that had reinvigorated the aging franchise. Ultimately, despite same gaping flaws, leaps in logic and a not entirely successful melding of elements, Generations did just enough to ensure more films would come. An accident onboard the newly christened Enterprise D results in the disappearance of decorated Starfleet Captain James T. Kirk William Shatner. Decades later, the crew of the Enterprise E the Next Generation crew investigate an attack on a nearby observatory, revealing a much deeper plot to destroy a planet, to secure a place in the path of a mysterious travelling beam of energy called the Nexus which also may hold the key to the whereabouts of James T. Star Trek Generations is presented in the aspect ratio of 2.

And by the end of the episode, Spock suggests that Starfleet should essentially erase the existence of the Discovery. There is an intensely long battle in which the Enterprise and the Discovery, in this case are massively outgunned by an enemy with the upper hand. The future of humanity is at stake. There is even an extended — and a bit pointless — boarding party when Leland beams over to the Discovery. The fast cuts, combined with the shaky cam, provided constant visual stimulation, almost taking the viewer on a roller-coaster ride.
