* ''Film/StarTrekGenerations''. Captain Picard is fiddling with the control panel for Soran's sun-killer missile. When Soran orders him away from it and goes to work on it himself, he discovers that Picard has sabotaged the missile. As the launch clock counts down to zero, the last we see of Soran is [[OhCrap the look of despair on his face]] as the missile explodes, killing him.
