It is a shame they didn't film a new explosion for GEN, but understandable--models are expensive and time-consuming to build, especially when you're just going to blow it up. Had they been using CGI at the time we probably would've gotten something new.
But they were using CGI. The ships in the nexus at the beginning of the film were CGI to get the interactive lighting from the Nexus.
I didn't know that. In that case there is no defence for using such an iconic scene from TUC in GEN.

Re: Duras Sisters surviving Generations

Why does anyone care about the Duras sisters?

Its not like they're going to appear in any new movies or series or are they?

I mean if people just want to think they survived because they like the characters thats fine but at the moment they'll only be 'alive' for the novels.

Because they're a) fun, b) interesting, and c) SEXY.

I also wish that the Duras sisters had survived. I think they could've been fun during the Federation-Klingon War and the Dominion War.

In fact, I wish they hadn't used the Duras sisters at all. I would've preferred DaiMon Bok and the Ferengi.

They were piss-poor villains for a feature film. Good riddance, I say.
I feel the same way about most Trek villains . But as someone else said, at least they were strangely-sexy and fun. Was kind of a waste just to blow them up.

And if they weren't flaunting their tits to the camera, what purpose would they serve as antagonists that couldn't be met by any other two dimensional characters?
