TWO CAPTAINS. ONE DESTINY.
A scientist (Malcolm McDowell) ruthlessly intends to take advantage of an energy ribbon that contains a place of true happiness called the Nexus. The seventh film in the series marked the Great Change when the original crew stepped aside for the new gang – the characters from Star Trek: The Next Generation. The meeting between Kirk (William Shatner) and Picard’s (Patrick Stewart) generations is worth a look; there are good attempts at showing emotional ties between the two captains, the demons they share, but the movie is simply too slow.
