Punch It 61 - Generations Rewrite
3 days ago
The Punch It crew takes on Star Trek: Generations in a rewrite.
Generations is not the best Star Trek movie. It is also not the best Next Gen movie. But it is the host's belief that this film has been unfairly maligned for decades. Regardless of that opinion, there are still plot holes and things that could have been better. Char and Tristan were young enough to not care when they were kids but now they have studied storytelling and have a few things to say.
They start the show with a spoiler-free reaction to the Star Trek: Discovery season finale but then move onto the rewrite where they tackle what turned out to be one of the hardest things to rewrite: the opening.
