Re: Did Insurrection kill the TNG franchise?
Regarding starship destruction and replacement, I absolutely hate that! I actually feel quite distanced from The Final Frontier and The Undiscovered Country with the Enterprise A.
Would you rather the next movie be about the crew in desk jobs? It's Star trek... they kind of need a spaceship to make it work.
