“Each time I sat and watched Generations I found myself increasingly dismayed at the overall impact of the character. I found him too placid, too passive, too introspective (almost to the point of being depressing in places.) I also learned a lot about how we shifted the Next Generation series from the television screen to the big screen. We did it partly successfully.”
