what if generations were good

The Enterprise-A returning to Earth. All of the classic crew are aboard, except, of course, Sulu. The Enterprise is being welcomed by Starfleet Command via subspace radio, and we see a saddened Kirk finally accepting that his carreer as a satship captain is over.But, lo and behold, a wild energy beam suddenly appears! It's what we'll learn to be the Nexus wave, threatening the El-Aurian refugee ships. Kirk recieves the call and orders the Enterprise to the rescue. The Enterprise is caugh in the enrgy ribbon. Spock calculates that a photon torpedo detonation would cause the energy to dissipate enough for the Enterprise and the El-Aurians to break free. The only problem is that there are no torpedoes left aboard after the Enterprise' battle with Chang's BoPScotty comes to the rescue, modifying the deflector to emit the necessary energy. However, the deflector, like other systems of the Enterprise, are not functioning perfectly, after all the damage they recieved from Chang's attack. The deflector fires up, cutting a path for the El-Aurians to escape. The whole system then shorts out, and we see the path being engulfed in the energy of the Nexus again.Pandemonum reigns on the bridge of the Enterprise, as Kirk, Spock, Bones and the others try to find back-ups that are still working. The Nexus ribbon reaches out toward the Enterprise, energy threads lick the marred hull of the starship. Bridge consoles flare up, a buzzing noise gets louder and louder. Close-up on Kirk's face as everything suddenly falls silent and still: the moment he realizes that all is lost. We see the Nexus ribbon overfloying the Enterprise and the mighty starship vanishes in a flash of light.Eighty years pass, and we see the Enterprise-D as it investigates the Amargosa station mystety. From this point on, the movie goes on as it does originally, except for one thing: Soran is revealed to be a supreme computer genius, basically the second Daystrom. This is how he manages to hack the Enterprise's defence systems.Also, the ship that the Duras sisters usse is not an old BoP: it's a Negh'var or at least a Vor'cha. It pummels the Enterprise, which is defenceless without shields. Although the D has the firepower, she can't keep up the fight with most of her defences gone. Picard is already on the planet, Soran detonates the sun, and the D's saucer crashes, as it was supposed to happen.Picard aqwakens in the Nexus, where he finds an echo of Guinan. Asking for help, Guinan tells him that there are people who can help him and guides him to the Enterprise-A. Picard convinces Kirk and the others to help him saving the world. The Enterprise-A returns to Picard's time, just as the Duras's ship opens up its barrage. The two Enterprises manage to defeat it, although both ships are critically damaged in the process. Picard and Kirk beam down to the planet to confront SoranThe two Captains fight the El-Aurian in a classic fistfight. While Kirk is old, he's still a fighter, and while Picard is a pacifist, he's not the man who lets himself being bullied around. They defeat Soran and disable the trilithium torpedo just before its countdown reaches zero.Both Captains return to their respective Enterprises. Picard hails Kirk, asking them what he will do. Kirk says Scotty'll repair the Enterprise-A enough to make her do a slighshot tiem travel to the past. Picard tells Kirk that doing so would change the timeline, as the Enterprise-A is known to have perished on her final voyage home. Spock says logic dictates they remain in Picard's time, and even Bones agrees. Kirk smiles at the camera, saying: Who are we to argue with history?The two Enterprises limp back to Earth.Starfleet's new golden age has begun.

So you didn't like Generations because it wasn't an alternate universe?

Comment by warjinzo on July 25, 2014 at 7:23am

i think the schenario should be after The Undiscovered Country (1991) just as alternative universe

Let's try this another way: what did you think was wrong with Generations?

How would Star Trek interact with the city of domes?

All I know for sure is that if the original Enterprise ever encountered this kind of society, Captain Kirk would've said, "The hell with the Prime Directive! We have to put a stop to this madness!" And then blasted the place from orbit. After that, he probably would have checked into the Love Shop for an extended shore leave.See More

October 22: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Jeff Goldblum has always done some interesting work.  He captivated audiences as the scientist slowly losing his mind -- but not his humanity -- in David Cronenberg's remake of The Fly; and he walked us through the paces of Chaos Theory in Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park.  And lest we forget to celebrate our…See More

"@Ed: Makes sense. The desert is sort of an empty stage, so to speak. You see it used a lot in movies of that era: westerns, biker movies, hippies-being-terrorized-by-cannibals, etc. I love Australia, and Aussie filmmakers have always made good use…"

"I never quite understood why, in "Damnation Alley," everything turned into a desert? Vegas makes sense, sort of, but everything else was just for visual flare. Do you suppose this movie was what drove Jan Michael Vincent to drink? "
