Star Trek: Generations: 1st in Next Generation series

David Carson

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…

Star Trek: First Contact: 2nd in Next Generation series

Jonathan Frakes

Even-numbered Star Trek movies tend to be better, and First Contact (#8 in the popular movie series) is no exception—an intelligently handled plot involving the galaxy-conquering Borg and their attempt to invade Earth’s past, alter history, and “assimilate” the entire human race.

This time out, Picard (Patrick Stewart) and his executive crew must transport to a Shangri-la-like planet to see why their android crewmate Data (Brent Spiner) has run…

Film:Star Trek: Nemesis

Star Trek: Nemesis: 4th in Next Generation series

Stuart Baird

The sacrifice of a beloved character is just one of many highlights in Nemesis, the 10th feature in the lucrative Star Trek franchise. Enigmatically billed as the beginning of “A Generation’s Final Journey,” this richly plotted Next Generation adventure maintains the “even number rule” regarding Trek’s feature quality, and it’s one of the best in the series. It hits its brisk stride when Picard (Patrick Stewart) and his Enterprise-E crew encounter Shinzon (Tom Hardy), a younger clone of Picard, rejected by the Romulans as the…
