Star Trek: Generations - That's Way Too Close
Soran needs to get to the Nexus. There is a planet that the Nexus will miss unless the sun is destroyed, in which case the Nexus will fly right through the planet. So Soran camps out on that planet and tries to destroy the sun. Before he blows up the sun, the nexus is seen flying through the sky BELOW the clouds! This is just not possible. On the enterprise, Picard and Data study holographic charts that clearly show how huge the Nexus is, and how far away from any clouds the Nexus will miss the planet by.

What I want to know is why Picard didn't just return to an earlier time when he left the nexus?? If he had gone back to when Soran was on the Enterprise he could have had him put in the brig. End of problem.

First off, the name of the planet is Veridian III. You said yourself how massive the nexus was, so why is it "just not possible" to be seen below the clouds? It may have needed just that little space to reach the surface of the planet, hence the reason Soran had to blow up their sun.

The difference between Picard saving the inhabitants of Veridian 4 and Worf's brother saving the society mentioned earlier was not a matter of was a matter of the Star Fleet moral code. The inhabitants of Veridian 4 would never know that a man on a neighboring planet had saved them, but Worf's brothers actions would violate the Prime Directive, which reads: "As the right of each sentient species to live in accordance with its normal cultural evolution is considered sacred, no Star Fleet personnel may interfere with the healthy development of alien life and culture. Such interference includes the introduction of superior knowledge, strength, or technology to a world whose society is incapable of handling such advantages wisely. Star Fleet personnel may not violate this Prime Directive, even to save their lives and/or their ship unless they are acting to right an earlier violation or an accidental contamination of said culture. This directive takes precedence over any and all other considerations, and carries with it the highest moral obligation."

What I want to know is, if he successfully got into the Nexus the first time in a spaceship accident, as did Gainen and all those other people, as did Captain Kirk, why is it later described as being too dangerous to fly into with a ship?

To FiveThumbs: Ever seen Minority Report? Ever seen the last episode of Star Trek The Next Generation? Everyone would have wondered why Picard decided to just toss him in the brig. Although I do think that he could have gone back to a much earlier point in time and either left Kirk in the Nexus or Kirk would have gone in living in the 24th century (now there's a scary thought!).

In one episode, Picard gets mad because Worf's brother saves a small village from destruction by transferfing it to another planet. If this was such an inconvinence to him, then why did he sacrifice his ship and crew to save another equally obsolete race from a similar destruction? How do we know that Soran's plan wasn't meant to be? They shoulda' let him, its only one planet after all...
