Of course this doesn't make much sense once you think about it. A bunch of young people have technology (from where?) that enables them to leave the planet but they are unable to take power from their parents who live in a pre-industrial economy? The background is, as usual, not well-flashed out as, hardly a surprise either, the story is focused upon other stuff.
Yeah, riveting stuff about Troi and Crusher's boobs being firm, Worf going through Klingon puberty and Data and Picard singing. Stuff way more crucial to a successful movie than minor details about your plot making sense!
