In fact, come to think of it, they could have brought in an army of Picards and Kirks if they did things right!
That would have been cool! It could have been Star Trek: Attack of the clown penises

Look, stop whining; they were originally going to call it the Herbal Essence, but they figured someone would accuse them of stealing the name from shampoo, so they changed it to a more obscure brand. There's no pleasing some people.

How come destroying a planet's sun is instantly noticable from the planet? Shouldn't sunlight take several minutes to reach the third planet in a system?
Spaaaahk

In the Star Wars Universe, planets are the same distance from the sun as they are in 3rd grade textbook charts.

Light travels @ 186,000 miles per second... assuming the planet is about 93 million miles from the sun, then yes you are right, it would take several minutes, about 8 minutes by my calculations.

Let's face it... I guess in the future, there are no physics.

Quote from: Just Some Guy
The thing that gets me is that if it's your desire to leave the Nexus, wouldn't the Nexus fake it for you and make you think you've left the Nexus?

Game over. This answers everything.

So that bottle rocket the Dark Lord  sent to zap the sun must've had a little warp drive or Picard would've been staring open mouth at the sky for eight minutes.  Even Kirk didn't take that long to die.


Well sure it would have to have a warp drive to get there that fast, but he's talking about the light from the destroyed sun going back to the planet... that can't go at warp. Still we can just chalk that up to those 8 minutes being edited out; it's perhaps the smallest plothole in the movie.

The light appeared to go super-luminal velocities due to the energy flux resulting from a stable warp drive alligning it's statman's complex with the bomb's zero-point energy output.

People, the answer to all the Nexus plot holes is simple:

Midichlorians.

The thing that bothers me most is WHY (if Picard can exit the nexus at any point in space and time he wants) DOES HE GO BACK TO THE MOUNTAINTOP WITH SORAN? Couldn't he have gone back a week earlier and then just picked up Soran at the observatory? No mess, no fuss?

And why can't Soron just fly a ship into the nexus? Yes, Picard points out that ships that do this are destroyed, but isn't that how Soran entered the Nexus originally? By having his ship caught in it?

Which Whoopi does Picard encounter in the Nexus? Is this a Whoopi generated entirely from Picard's imagination? Is it the original Whoopi who was in the nexus, and who therefore wouldn't know Picard, or is it the real Whoopi who maintains some kind of cosmic connection with the nexus?

It just don't make no sense, is all.
