As much as Insurrection
provided as much pleasure as having your teeth removed with a hammer covered in barbed-wire, Generations
was the low point, as it was so much that was wrong with the tepid Berman era of ST: flat characterizations, villains making Saturday morning cartoons seem well developed, and too much technobabble (even for sci-fi). Worst of all, was the condescending "passing the torch" nonsense, by trying to put a knife in the heart of TOS with Kirk's demise. I guess Berman, et al, thought "Kirk's gone!! That means everyone will forget TOS and just focus on MY shows as the REAL Star Trek!"
...nevermind that in the years to follow, DS9
's most popular episodes were flashback/tie-ins to TOS...
