Re: Was moving 'The Next Generation' over to movies a bad decision?
No, it was not a mistake to take TNG to the big screen, but it was a mistake as to how they were done. All three movies seemed rushed and it seemed to me that no one, especially the actors, took the films seriously. They all assumed because it was Star Trek it was going to be an automatic hit and there was no reason to put forth any effort in the acting, directing or writing of the productions.
I'm still amazed that Michael Piller wrote something like "Insurrection", especially given the great work he did for the tv series.
