Re: Why would Nimoy not appear in Generations, but was in Nu-Trek?
I imagine he saw what a train-wreck Generations was going to be.
He flat-out said it. Berman asked Nimoy to direct, but Nimoy told him the script was terrible and needed a major rewrite. Berman said there was no time. Nimoy said adios.
If only Shatner had turned down being in that godawful film.
