In Star Trek Movie Memories
, Shatner indicates this was an idea being kicked around when Generations
was being put together. The original idea was Kirk's crew and Picard's crew, with some big climax where the two ships are fighting each other. The problem the writers had was no matter how they tried to plot it, one side always came out looking like the bad guys.
The other problem with the concept was to bring back all the major characters and pay the actors their heavy salaries would exhaust the budget before a single frame of film was shot.
