Re: Happy 19th Birthday, Star Trek Generations!

At least Soran was better than Ru'afo, and I liked him a lot more than Shinzon. The thalaron radiation weapon in the latter film wound up being more interesting than Shinzon was, because they actually had the core of a terrific concept - a genetic clone of Jean-Luc Picard who grew up under dramatically different circumstances, becoming a much darker and more conflicted individual - and squandered it by not spending enough time fleshing out his character, spending more time on his deteriorating appearance and creepy psychic obsession with Troi than making him a better villain and more of an equal for Captain Picard (ironic considering they were genetically identical to one another).
