Re: TNG Movies...Are We Missing Out???

I'm not entire too sure that the TNG characters were meant for the big-screen, given the way they were defined throughout the show. They all seemed out of character in the movies with perhaps the exception of Generations. I'm guessing TPTB required their cast to be action heroes in the films and it just went completely against their characters. When I see First Contact or Insurrection, for example, I just don't see the Picard character I knew on the show... what with him shooting his phaser rifle all the time, performing stunts and leading away missions.

Dare I say it, I think DS9 might be better suited for the big screen, but given the way DS9 ended, that might have been difficult.
