Star Trek is like pizza. When it's good, it's really good. When it's bad, it's still pretty good.
Generations is like one of those pizzas which the delivery guy has delivered ten minutes late. And when you open the box you find it's gone cold and all the cheese and the toppings have got stuck to the lid.
And even though it's got all the ingredients you asked for, it just doesn't work.

"Generations" had a lot of potential, but it suffered from having a completely unfocused mess of a script built around a laundry list ("...Kirk, ship blows up, Best Villain Since Khan[TM], Klingon sisters, Data's emotion chip, Enterprise B, Guinan...").

At the time I hated the music. I thought it sounded too much like the TV series drone and I couldn't help but compare it to the excellent bombastic percussions of the STVI score. But I came to appreciate the score years later.
