It doesnt make sense. The nexus is another form of existance it isnt reality as we have known. It forms new and different realities. So when kirk can Picard use the nexus to go back in time that would only mean that the world is still living off the nexius some how and not realy reality which they were trying to save. Which means in reality , reality is dead and there is only the nexius left...

I think that the plot idea was that you can do whatever you want to in the Nexus, such as create your own reality any way you see fit, which is why it was so appealing to stay within the Nexus. If I was understanding correctly, you could also leave the Nexus and return to the real world if you choose. In doing so you could also choose to go to any point in the timeline of the real world. Something like that.

Regardless, I thought the plot for Generations was pretty weak. The only ST:TNG movie I've really liked thus far has been First Contact.

Guinan also said that you could leave the nexus to whatever point in time you wished. Of course that does open an entire can of worms in terms of logic since they left when Picard and Kirk wanted, but what about Soran? He didn't exactly want to leave the nexus.

Soran never really was in the nexus the first time round. The people on those transport ships were shifting between the nexus and reality, which is why the transporter had trouble locking onto them all. As was said in Generations; Soran was ripped from the nexus.
