Shuttle Pod: The TrekMovie.com Podcast Episode 14 – A Revisitation of ‘Star Trek Generations’
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. But, did this film actually succeed at that? Or did it just get weird and end with three old dudes wrestling in the desert? Shuttle Pod co-host Jared posits that because the film did such a poor job of merging the stories of TOS and TNG, that it is the worst Star Trek film ever made. Kayla does her best to defend a film that, let’s face it, has some confusing moments. Brian brings some great pieces of trivia to the table (did you know that Leonard Nimoy was offered the director’s chair?) making for an awesome hour-long discussion of Star Trek Generations.
