Is Star Trek: Generations the worst Star Trek film ever? In this episode of the Shuttle Pod we simultaneously tear apart and defend the film that was meant to pass the torch from The Original Series to the crew of the Enterprise-D, The Next Generation. Subscribe to Shuttle Pod: The TrekMovie.com Podcast on iTunes and Pocket Casts! Star Trek: Generations was the film that was meant to pass the baton, officially transitioning Trekkies from their beloved TOS crew to the new shiny crew of The Next Generation.
