Ah, see that's what I would probably just view as examples of 'silly' Trek sometimes, where the wacky stuff started to creep in...

That's a fair point, and I think it's probably come up in post-'Generations' discussion before, but what Picard reported to Starfleet about the events of the film and the loss of the ship is unclear....

I think this conversation has come up before a couple years ago, but I've only got 'Star Trek' and 'Star Trek Into Darkness' on Blu-ray just now. I bought the remastered Season 1 of 'The Next...

Yeah, it's a scene that kind of does the basic job but I think it is unsatisfactory on a lot of levels.

On the one hand, I can accept in the moment the idea that given what he's just lost the idea...

I think the whole thing is boiling back down to differing interpretations of both how the scene was intended and how it's recieved. For me, it's not trying to be a foreign cinema style ending which...
