Re: Was moving 'The Next Generation' over to movies a bad decision?

I think if Generations hadn't been rushed, we'd have gotten something much better.
I blame Paramount entirely for how rushed Generations was.

Patrick Stewart was overworked directing the second to last episode of the series, being in pretty much every single scene of AGT, and was only given a week off being having to be in Generations.

The studio should have given a cast a year off instead of working them like dogs.
Paramount's movie division was thinking that it had been three years since the last Trek movie, and that TNG was a very hot property at the time.

Hindsight is always 20-20 as the old saying goes, but Paramount's mindset in 1994 probably was to strike while the iron was hot rather than to let TNG cool off.
