Star Trek: Generations (1994) (part 12 of 12)

And now for the DVD. I’m just going to cover the two-disc set released in 2004, since I really don’t want to have to delay this thing by having to track down the newer version. Besides, the 2004 set is pretty definitive in my view, and is really the set to grab if you simply can’t live without this movie in your life.

Of course, if you can’t live without this movie in your life, it might be advisable to go out and find a new life.

The Collector’s Edition

The disc has roughly the same setup that the other Trek two-disc sets have, as I stated in my Star Trek V DVD article. Documentaries, an audio commentary, text commentary, storyboards, the usual.

For some strange reason though, the trailers for the movie are nowhere to be found. It’s an odd omission and one I find truly disappointing, as the trailers are actually much better than the film itself. You can find them online, though not always in great condition.

    { Kirk says, “It wouldn’t be the Enterprise without a Sulu at the helm.” Well, it wouldn’t be an Enterprise that looked like it belonged as the flagship, at any rate. I’ve harped on it before, but the other Enterprise designs really weren’t great. From the “Love Boat with heavy artillery” used in TNG to the souped-up “Does this look any more intimidating? Please say yes!” model in the NextGen-cast films to the lackluster salad trivet that Scott Bakula was the captain of, nothing can really match the sleek and elegant simplicity of the original Enterprise, NCC-1701, no bloody A, B, C, or D. }

    Dunno why his reviews keep shitting on the Enterprise D and E, which both looked great.

    {They’re with me on the whole “Why go back in time to immediately before the shit hits the fan” thing. }

    So that if it fails, the Nexus sucks him back up again and he can try again.

    Meh, the Enterprise D crashing is a legit good scene and has more of an impact on me because I don’t like the Original Series Enterprise or crew, and Star Trek III is barely a better film than this one. Also your review is almost 15 pages long and is extremely boring, it comes off like a Red Letter Media review. Did he steal your shtick? The Nostalgia Critic did a far better review, you guys are just boring and shitty.

    Funny thing is stellar Cartography section was invented for Voyager and it made sense there…it was an unknown part of the galaxy, they had no star maps, and needed the room. They were lost, their maps were useless, and this was the best they had to find their way around.

    But in TNG world,most of the time they seem to only travel to places where they’ve been before, or that at least starfleet has. Not too often does enterprise go to a COMPLETELY unknown area to the point where even the star maps they have would be useless.

    So why does this exist here?
