    Once the stardust settles and the generations of "Star Trek" fans pass in judgment, this splendid production may emerge as the best movie to date inspired by the multiple-series TV phenomenon created by the late Gene Roddenberry. [15 Nov. 1994]

    To be honest, I didn't find this as bad a allot of fan did. It isn't a masterpiece, but it wasn't a bad way to introduce Picard to the big screen.

    Characters more or less were following their roles to the same standards of the show. The narrative was a little odd and full of hole, but it was entertaining at least.

    I will say, while I was never a fan of Shatner, I did respect the character he portrayed, and with that said his send off felt a little tame. He deserved better.

    Overall:
    It is full of inconsistencies, the antagonists never come off as too threatening and some of the character development for the staple characters are a little weird (Geordie's eyes, Data's emotions, etc.) But, even so it still is entertaining and fun to watch, at least once.
