Oh, come on, she did way
more than that. In one movie, she complained about an EMH, and in another, Data threw her into the water.
I've never seen this "TNG movies feel like overlong episodes" criticism from professional critics, so I suspect it's a Trek fandom meme.
It's a little more than that--the Washington Post
said that "Structurally, [Generations
] is an episode of the TV show Star Trek: The Next Generation
," and the New York Times
"little more than a glorified television episode." The San Francisco Chronicle
says that Nemesis
"might have made for a novelty episode of the TV series." That's just a superficial search, so I suspect there are a lot more references like that out there.
