TWO CAPTAINS. ONE DESTINY.
The passing of the baton.
In 1994, Paramount debuted the first of the movies to feature the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation. It would serve as a bridge for the two generations of the franchise and do so in epic fashion!
…but did it?
Joining us to talk about this seventh Star Trek film is our friend Brandon-Shea Mutala from Trek.FM! He’s the host of Melodic Treks and the co-host of Warp 5–and Generations is his favorite TNG movie!
Sadly, Brandon is outnumbered: Bill and Dan don’t count this film among their favorites. We’ll discuss the plot elements and the areas that we thought the film could have improved on, and we’ll debate the personal Nexuses (Nexii??) for Kirk and Picard and whether they fit the characters.
Plus, lots of Star Trek news on the DS9 Documentary and a new release of the ST:TMP soundtrack on vinyl! Enter the Nexus with us and Episode 96 of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast! MAKE IT SO!
