Kirk and Picard together again for the first time! Victorian children! A cabin in the mountains with a dog! Guinan surrounded by candles! The Enterprise-B with a doofy captain! Worf walks the plank! Data’s emotion chip installed! And lots of other stuff that don’t actually add up to a good movie as the TOS Rewatch does Generations.
When I first saw this movie in 1994, my first thought was that it was a promising first draft that was rushed into production. This is mostly because it was a promising first draft that was rushed into production. Ronald D. Moore and Brannon Braga wrote this in about seven-and-a-half minutes, at the same time that they were writing the (much much better) “All Good Things…” and then the movie was slammed into production right after TNG wrapped production as a TV show.
