I love Star Trek.

Star Trek fandom, I can take or leave.
Being one of the most regular posters on a Star Trek forum seems like a kinda baffling decision then?

That is true. It took me ages to realize why, but I always felt there was something amiss about Kirk in Generations. I eventually realized it was the complete absence of Spock. Kirk without Spock there is just... half the punch.
There's something amiss about Kirk in Generations because he's written like William Shatner, not Kirk, and is given minimal screentime before being abruptly killed by a bridge.
It's never a good idea to put a former main character on the sidelines. None of the various episodes with cameos were ever satisfying.
Nimoy Spock wasn't Spock in Trek 2009 either. Had he been killed off there as well, there'd be even greater bitching.
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
