    Agree.

    The Galaxy Class must have the transparent aluminum that Scotty discussed and used in STIV:TVH.:vulcan:

    The why did it break like glass in Generations?
    Seems like they'd have been better off using some flexible plastic or other "20th century equivalent"

    Everytime, every f*** time someone mentions Generations it's about something bad in that movie. Either it's Troi piloting the ship, or a Klingon Bird of Prey shouldnt be able to destroy a Galaxy ship, the Nexus don't make sense, the special effects were recycled, Kirk's death was lame, Soran was lame, the Klingon women were lame, the Enterprise-B was lame, Picard cried like a schoolgirl or some other bantha poodoo like that.

    Generations never happened. It's Star Trek's "The Star Wars Holiday Special".

    I heartly agree with that RedLetterMedia guy from youtube.

    Yeah, but at least we can still rant about it.

    I never felt the Holiday Special to be that bad. ;)

    Plinkett (RLM) made a brutal observation about the last scene aboard the Bridge in VII (this one hurt more than the shuttered glass, IMHO) and of course the producers had forgotten that Picard (for the 1,000th time: the last French "d" is silent!) was supposedly of French origin. To portray one of his ancestors at the Battle of Trafalgar, the French's biggest naval defeat, is outrageously unlikely. :rolleyes:

    Sorry, for have gotten off-topic.

    I liked Generations, simply because the E-D looked absolutely beautiful in that movie! Too bad they had to crash her, though. :(

    :techman: And it was the first (hopefully not last :rolleyes:) appearance of the Enterprise-D in widescreen.

    Strictly speaking, "widescreen" can mean that Enterprise episode. Enterprise was widescreen.

    But movies, I wouldn't keep hopes up.

    One of the few things I do like about nuTrek's ship design is that the lighted dome atop the bridge has silhouettes of working machinery behind the dome surface.

    agreed, but it's still incredible how that move has nothing of salvageable. Let me go on some more: Data's emotion chip, Enterprise B crowded with bizarre journalists and captain Ferris Bulere, Picard's Xmas carol, Jar-Jar Binks....

    I agree. But I don't refer to it as the E-D because that sounds like a job for Viagra.
