Re: Is the opening section of GENS basically the best part of the movi

Generations has some issues but I still enjoy it alot
It's kind of in the middle of the pack for all of the movies to me.

My problem with the Generations prologue is that whenever Scotty starts spewing TNG style technobabble, it jars me right out of the movie.
Maybe because all of Scotty's dialogue in this film is supposed to be Spock. Leonard Nimoy declined to appear, so they used Scotty instead.

(Same goes for Chekov. He wasn't supposed to be there, McCoy was. But DeForest Kelley also declined to do the film. So all of his lines were given to Walter Koenig)

I'd take Generations over the 2009 film.
Off topic - but nice to see a fellow Van Halen fan on the boards!

Re: Is the opening section of GENS basically the best part of the movi

At the time I thought it was cool to see Kirk, Scotty and Chekov, and the Enterprise-B.

Now, I don't quite feel the same. It was painfully obvious to me that Scotty was reading Spock's lines, and Chekov was reading McCoy's. Harriman was made to look utterly imbecilic, which of course was the point (did I really need to be hit over the head with the reminder that this guy isn't Kirk?)

And the introduction of Demora was kind of pointless. Yes, I get that it was supposed to remind Kirk that other people once under his command actually had lives that he didn't know about, but...after the beginning of the film, she's gone forever! I would have loved to have learned more about her, but apparently she was just a plot device.
