Re: Why would Nimoy not appear in Generations, but was in Nu-Trek?

He was also in the running to direct "Generations", and I suspect that (at least in part) his back-and-forth about the size of his cameo was about playing a negotiating game with the studio, to see just how much Rick Berman actually wanted him for the movie. By saying he wanted a larger role, he was also saying that, as director, he wanted a bigger hand in making changes to the script as well. Berman turned him down, possibly on the grounds that it was a tight schedule that couldn't accomodate too many rewrites, or possibly on the grounds that he didn't want the TOS characters to overshadow the TNG ones too much. So Nimoy walked from both the cameo and the director's chair.
