Meanwhile, while still on board the BOP, Soran had planted a camera on Geordi's [[VISOR]] to transmit whatever Geordi looks at back to the Klingons.  When returned to the Enterprise, Geordi unknowingly transmits the ship's shield frequency.  Matching that frequency with their weapons allows the BOP to shoot straight through the Enterprise's shields (essentially more [[technobabble]] nonsense).  The BOP is able to cause serious damage to the Enterpirse with this advantage, until more technobabble from the Enterprise causes the BOP to cloak, thus forcing it to lower its own shields and the Enterprise is able to quickly destroy it.  However, the stardrive section is so damaged that the [[warp core]] is about to explode.  They evacuate everyone into the saucer section (and we see yet another example where they idiotically take young children into hazardous situations) and separate the two halves of the ship.  However, shockwave from the exploding stardrive section knocks the saucer out of orbit and crashing down to the surface of the planet.  The planet and everything on it are destroyed by the exploding star.

In the Nexus, Picard finds himself celebrating Christmas with the family he never had.  Being the enlightened man that he is, and with prodding from Guinan, he realizes its all an illusion and emptiness.  Guinan leads him to find Kirk who has been in the Nexus ever since the incident at the start of the film.  Picard enlists Kirks help to stop Soran.  We are told they can go any place in space or time so of course they choose the moment Picard was fighting with Soran just before entering the Nexus (why he didn't choose to stop him back before the first star was destroyed or any other point where it would be far easier is again, a mystery known only to the writers who needed a climatic fight).  Between the two of them, they are able to stop Soran but Kirk dies during the fight (for real this time).

Picard sets the missile to self destruct and the star does not explode.  However, the saucer is still severely damaged by the crash and is considered a total loss.  After all, they needed a new ship to show off in the next movie.
