    I was supposed to see this on the big screen. But my Mom gave me the choice of opening a Christmas gift early or seeing the movie.

    I opened the gift but would see this on VHS 2 years later. Just saying VHS makes me feel old. lol

    I can't believe it has already been 25 years. I hope STO does something to commemorate this.

    Could you imagine if it'd been Q who'd appeared in the Nexus with Picard instead of Guinan. That would have been hilarious.
    You'd think Q would know about this Nexus since he is omnipotent... I guess they left that out as a plot hole for "reasons"...

    I was supposed to see this on the big screen. But my Mom gave me the choice of opening a Christmas gift early or seeing the movie.

    I opened the gift but would see this on VHS 2 years later. Just saying VHS makes me feel old. lol

    Want to feel old... How about this for the 25th Anniversary, whoa LOL.... You need to breakout your floppy disk drive though, 640k hard drive space, EGA 256 colors for a video card and oh and a Sound Blaster card and at least 10 Mhz speed.. Needs MS-DOS 2.1 if any of you old farts know what that is lol
    Beam that into your computer; if it can work.

    Box says "Supports Microsoft Mouse" - Today we must take this for granted, but back then I guess it was an *option* hahaha

    "Color monitor required" - LOL

    Frakes can still pull off a Riker today with some minor hair coloring I think... Patrick is ageless but Shatner got fat since Generations... too many eggs from Antonia in the Nexus probably...
    Isn't Frakes a little puffy too or has he lost weight? Last time I saw a pic he put on a few.

    He looked fine in the trailer. He's 67 years old. Comparing him to when he was 35 is ridiculous.

    For comparison, Sir Patrick turned 79 years old in 2019, though Picard, if the series is set in 2399 would be due to turn 94 at that point.

    Sir Patrick is ageless - I laugh when the producers make episodes where they make him an old man, yet he never looks like that in reality. (Inner Light and All Good Things))

    I was 7 when this came out, remember going to watch it in the cinema with my parents in Liverpool as we were visiting my gran. I seem to recall we went to a fast food place, they were doing Star Trek themed toys for their kids meal thing. I got a tricorder and thought that was cool, until the kid on another table got a freaking phaser WHICH LIT UP AND MADE PHASER SOUNDS....

    My tricorder felt pretty ♥♥♥♥ after that lmao.

    "I don't like things that are different" -Plinkett

    For those of you who aren't familiar with Mr. Plinkett, he did a two part Generations Review back in the day, and it's pretty entertaining.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h06WKYFYdlo

    Of course nothing compares to his magnum opus, his Phantom Menace review. There's a version of it without all the "weird" stuff, which I highly recommend as well.
