Re: Did Insurrection kill the TNG franchise?
While I am one of the few guys who doesn't perceive the TNG flicks as being worse than the TOS flicks it is undeniable that they didn't achieve a total change like the TOS movies have (probably for the simply reason that they lacked a ten year hiatus which helped tremendously in giving the TOS characters a sense of being living classics). They rather oscillated between feeling visually (GEN) or thematically (INS) similar to the show and being big screen blockbusters (FC, NEM).
