Easy. You don't write a major motion picture script hoping you can coerce your anticipated main guest star to participate. Since TNG fans would only accept one actor as Q, John de Lancie's agent would have Paramount over a barrel as regards salary.
And it would be different from Generations, when they needed Shatner for the "cross-over" movie... how?
I think Q should have been in a TNG movie, too. Another missed opportunity.
