So the wife and I have been getting into the original series of Star Trek because it airs late at night, so we decided to obtain all 10 of the Trek movies and watch them all in order. I'm currently a little confused about the time span in the Star Trek films. Can anyone help me? In Star Trek VI, we see Warf of TNG acting as Kirk's "lawyer." In Star Trek TNG, I hear that there is an episode where Spock makes an appearance. This says that not THAT much time has gone by between the original series and the Next Generation, since that crews have crossed paths. But the continuity error I have found lies in Star Trek VII - or just Generations. We see Kirk's crew, then we flash forward 78 years to Picard's crew. This is made even more confusing since we see Whoopi Goldberg's character and Malcolm McDowell's character in Kirk's era and then existing exactly as they were in Picard's era - supposedly in a 78 year time span. Are there any Trekkies on the boards that can help me figure this out? By the way, killing Kirk in Generations was crap.
