Star Trek: Generations (1994) (part 6 of 12)

Just as the film starts to grind to a complete halt, Picard’s breakdown is mercifully interrupted by a huge bright flash outside the window. Hurrying to the bridge, Picard is told by Riker that a nearby star has imploded, thanks to a probe launched from the observatory, and they have only a few minutes to get the hell out of Dodge before the shockwave pulverizes everything in the system.

Wow, so the plot is finally moving! And we’re only, what, almost forty-five minutes into the running time?

As they’re about to leave, Picard and Riker realize that Geordi and Data haven’t checked in, and rather than leave them to get smashed to bits by the shockwave, they send Riker and Worf over to get them.
