Wasn't one of the original ideas for GEN was to have the TOS crew vs TNG crew.

I for one love seeing old people fight.
That's the comic book formula. Two heros fight then join up to beat a nobody of a villain. I would have liked to have seen that still. My concept is that a large Vengeance type ship has a massive bridge with room for both crews to inhabit and interact.

Baddy is dealt with, but a Yesterdays Enterprise scenario follows where the 1701-A goes back to its death, and we see the Enterprise B launch with all new kids--no veterans.

And it is Kirk, not Picard who talks about how we hear of History not forgetting the name Enterprise.

But here is the kick. The 1701-A was sent back to rescue folks from the Nexus and was destroyed there.

So the whole crew might be there, somewhere...

There could be any number of reasons thought up. Who says Kirk is even on the Enterprise A. Just the image is what is cool.
Never base a story on just one cool image.
Agreed, like starships rising out of an ocean, or falling through the clouds.

Yep. DC vs Marvel. It goes back 30 years, at least.

Re: Better ideas for Generations

I think the idea of "the crews of the Enterprise fight!" would be welcomed now, but in the context of the time I'm not sure they felt that audiences would buy it. The 'comic book mentality' to scripting still hadn't really taken hold in Hollywood in the early nineties, unlike today where the lines have definitely blurred towards that kind of more dynamic, comic book way of being able to find a justification for anything.
