The Gentlemen Hecklers Presents Star Trek: Generations (1994)

In 1994, the pre-internet-addled brains of devoted Trekkies everywhere collectively exploded when Gene Roddenberry‘s stellar creation transported its mythology into a unique, inter-generational space, boldly going where no franchise had gone before, when the original series’ fearless leader Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner) shared screen time with Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) in STAR TREK: GENERATIONS

Come see folks who wrote jokes for Netflix’s latest season of Mystery Science Theater 3000 provide live, hilarious commentary for one the most “imaginative” examples of cinematic hard-sci-fi, STAR TREK: GENERATIONS. Let The Gentlemen Hecklers provide you with their unique brand of live, hilarious commentary – for the best cheesy movies! Eric Fell, Patrick Maliha, and Shaun Stewart are Vancouver’s masters of movie riffing, making so-bad-they’re-good movies even better by talking you through them.

In the 23rd century, the Starship Enterprise is dispatched to the scene of a giant energy field about to engulf two ships. Capt. Kirk (William Shatner) averts calamity, but is exposed to the field and presumed dead. Years later, the Enterprise’s new commander, Capt. Picard (Patrick Stewart), learns that one of the disaster’s survivors, Dr. Soran (Malcolm McDowell), plans to enter the field by destroying a neighboring star. Picard now must collaborate with an unlikely ally in order to stop him.
