I personally think TNG is the best Star Trek series ever. I assume I am not alone in thinking this. But unfortunately I have found some of the movies that immediately followed less than stellar (if you’ll forgive the pun). The first one esp. was poor IMHO. Star Trek Generations. The nexus was an especially silly plot device I thought. I like my sci-fi to be plausible, predictions of the actual future if you will. And the nexus was just plain silly (it is not poss. such a thing would really exist–is it?).
No, my all-time favorite for TNG movies is unquestionably Star Trek First Contact. It had all the things that made the series so good. The triumph of technology over adversity. Hope for the future. The triumph of hope over adversity. I esp. loved Zefram Cochrane as the unlikely hero. They put him on a pedestal. But he proved to be all too human.
I haven’t bothered to look at other posts involving Star Trek movies for a reason. I want my opinion on the matter to be fresh and unspoiled by reading other posts on the matter.
Well, do any of you agree with me (and why)?
