Nice touch by ILM in Star Trek Generations
Yes, the effects are amazing, and ILM did some great work on this movie. They even pulled out the old Enterprise D model from nearly 8 years ago to shoot the space scenes, despite the fact the TV was using the smaller, more detailed model, in later seasons.
What I wanted to bring attention to is the detail in the explosion scene. You can see members of the crashed Enterprise standing on the hull of the ship looking up at the sky. You can actually see them reacting to the coming explosion. Most of them TRY to run away from the shockwave before it hits. That is a nice detail. I remember seeing this in the theater and thinking, “Wow, that was a neat shot and detail.”
