Earl Grey 136: Captain Alan Ruck / by Darren Moser

First Time Generations.

After seven years on television, Star Trek: The Next Generation launched a second Trek movie franchise with the inaugural TNG movie, Star Trek: Generations. Star Trek fans, both Original Series and Next Gen-ers, have long discussed their feelings about the eagerly-awaited meeting between Captains Kirk and Picard, Data's emotions, the destruction of the NCC-1701-D, and the death of Kirk. However, one Trek fan just watched the movie last week - Andi VanderKolk, better known as FirstTimeTrekker. @firsttimetrek

Andi joins the Earl Grey crew and shares her thoughts about Captain Alan Ruck...er, John Harriman of the Enterprise-B, how Dr. Tolian Soran was able to speak great lines while sporting a great coat, and how the star of the entire movie is Spot the Cat. The crew talks the expectations of the first TNG movie, the role of Captain James T. Kirk, and how the story could have been improved. Join Earl Grey as they talk the high and low parts of Star Trek: Generations.
