Re: My Review of Insurrection
It has its moments but falls apart when Picard enters the Nexus.
I think more so when Picard exits the Nexus. When he appeared back in reality.
He could have "arrived" on the planet prior to Soren aboard the bird of prey, disabled/destroyed the missile at his leisure. This also would have (unbeknownst to Picard) saved Kirk's life.
Arrived aboard the Enterprise as Soren beamed over from the observatory, had a security team escort Soren to sickbay, then the brig.
Arrived back prior to the time of the fire that killed his brother and nephew, communicated to preventing their deaths and
prevented the Romulan attack upon the observatory saving the life's there and
prevented the destruction of that star (and the observatory) and
captured Soren too.
I like the theory the Picard never left the Nexus because he got what he wanted most, Kirk is dead.
