Well, that's just it: according to Brannan Braga and Ron Moore, Soran was never intended to be a fearsome villain, he was merely misguided. He was just a man who lost his ethical values, and wanted to be with his family at all costs. Desperate men do desperate things.Dave said:I think the scriptwriter(s) had too much 'baggage' to carry. I thought it was reasonable, but they had too much that they needed to 'fit' in. If they had only had to use the TNG characters it would have been a better film. The 'Kirk still alive' was corny, but the Picard-Kirk scenes worked well. The Nexus was a corny plot device, but worked in the way it was meant to. Tollian Soran didn't seem particularly evil, maybe they should have developed him more, as a man who knew that what he was doing was wrong, but could not help himself.
Amen! That scene where Data curses had the whole audience roar with laughter, myself included.Highlander II said:"Number one, it's *retract* plank, not remove plank."
that was hilarious -- and then Data pushed Crusher in - i thought that was really funny - even if Crusher and Geordi didn't -- why? b/c it was classic Data -
but - the 'overacting' of emotion started to grate on my nerves about 2 mins after he put that stupid chip in --- but, then there's the 'oh sh**' scene - which is priceless ----
