And I really think you have to say that there was some poor tactics not only in Generations but TNG as a whole. The big E fired what, 1-2 phaser blasts then stopped firing while looking for a way to get an edge on an old beater like that? Shoot the damned thing already. The Galaxy class can launch what, 6-10 torpedoes at once? So why didn't they do that with simultaneous phaser spread?
