I apologize in advance for the length of this query, but I just wanted to get something straight.
In Star Trek Generations, Captain Piccard fails in his first attempt at stopping Soren from blowing up the star in order to divert the Nexxus to him. Because he failed, he too ended up in the Nexxus. An aborition of Guynin(sp?) tells him that this is all real, and he can be happy here forever. Piccard, being honorable, decides he won’t stay, and that he wants to go back to the moment in time right before Soren launches the missle. After getting Jim Kirk (also in the Nexxus) the two of them magically appear on the mountain in time to save the planet from being destroyed.
Well what about Soren? Does the Soren from the successful attempt get to stay in the Nexxus or does he also get sucked back to before the star was destroyed? Also, if Piccard and Kirk screwed up, wouldn’t they just end up in the Nexxus again and then decide to go back to try and stop him again? This makes my head hurt.
I know it’s just a movie, but if anyone has a take on this, I would appreciate your input.
