Star Trek Generations has enough verve, imagination and familiarity to satisfy three decades' worth of Trekkers raised on several incarnations of the television skein.

At least the special effects and outer space vistas are more handsome than usual.
-Jonathan RosenbaumFull Review
Generations is predictably flabby and impenetrable in places, but it has enough pomp, spectacle and high-tech small talk to keep the franchise afloat.
-Peter M. NicholsFull Review
A rich and absorbing saga.
-Desson ThomsonFull Review
Mostly, Generations spends its running length searching for, and never completely finding, its niche.
-James BerardinelliFull Review
A flawed but funky adventure involving a time warp known as the Nexus.
-Rita KempleyFull Review
Here is a movie so concerned with in-jokes and updates for Trekkers that it can barely tear itself away long enough to tell a story.
-Roger EbertFull Review
The meeting of Patrick Stewart's Jean Luc Picard and William Shatner's James T. Kirk is worth the price of admission or video rental: it's the clash of the titans, Shakespeare meets the Sixties.
From the opening shot of a champagne bottle floating in space to the pulsating ribbon of an engulfing Nexus, the film's images dazzled me.
-Betty Jo TuckerFull Review
Doesn't work as a goodbye to Kirk or as a hello to Picard.
-Scott NashFull Review
Star Trek: Generations suffers from the feeling that it is only a bigger budgeted episode of the television show, one that fails to use the full potential of the cinematic medium.
-Steve BiodrowskiFull Review
The seventh Trek extravaganza emerges as a disappointment, slightly better than the inept Star Trek V but markedly inferior to Parts II and VI.
I had hoped Generations would rescue Star Trek from its pervasive dullness, but somehow things have gotten even more boring
-Josh LarsenFull Review
a little stiff but still good
-Stefan Birgir Stefansson
I could think of two dozen "Next Generation" episodes that are a lot better than this flick.
Rewards long-time fans but contains basic flaws likely to trouble general audiences.
Devoted Trekkers will have to see it to keep abreast of the ships' logs, but Saturday night at the flicks fun-seekers are apt to concur this one only fires on stun.
-Angie ErrigoFull Review
This entry isn't particularly strong, but it isn't terribly weak, either -- it's probably the best of the "odd number" Trek movies ever made
-Christopher NullFull Review
Shatner is godly ( and he gets to say "Dillweed"!), but he deserved a better sendoff from Star Trek than this.
-Luke Y. Thompson
Disappointing big-screen debut for Picard's gang
Both a dismal farewell to the old crew and a dull introduction to the new.
So so attempt to combine two generations of Star Trek crews.
It would have, however, been nice if Generations would have gone beyond the scope of the television series to deliver something a bit more substantial.
A successful entry in the series, and a darn good film on its own.
