| THE crappiest Star Trek -movie ever
I don't know where to start so here goes: Star Trek: Nemesis sucks. Terribly. The script apparently was thrown out early in the making. Next they brought in some corporate sponsors who brought completely unnecessary and (to Star Trek -universe) totally irrational vehicles in silly action sequences. (I'll dub this the Lucas -syndrome: The Movie Shall Have A Speedy Scene For Future Gaming Exploitations.) Then the actors just seemed tired at their parts (who wouldn't be after so much unchanging cliches?) and some were just casted in wrong parts. Star Trek was never about blowing things in pieces and Shoot-First-Ask-Later -mentality that seems to have grasped every small production company in the last decade or two. And in the end the action sequences sucked too (crappy imitation of heroism).

Did You Know?


Instead of choreographing actors and actresses throwing themselves across the sets to simulate impacts, sets like the Enterprise-E bridge were built on gimbals to provide the shudder.


Commander: Senators, consider the opportunities for the Empire. At last, the destinies of the planets Romulus and Remus will be united. Shinzon of Remus is offering us a chance to make ourselves stronger than ever before. It would be madness to reject it. I ...


During the Briefing en route to Romulus, Data advises the Senior Staff about the planet Remus, and he describes Remus as being in a tidally-locked orbit around its sun (meaning one side of the planet always faces its sun) and because of the extreme temperatures on the day side, the Remans live on the dark side of the planet. In a planet that is tidally-locked to its sun like Remus, the dark side would technically also have extreme temperatures as well, on the cold side. The most ideal habitable zones on a planet like Remus would not be the dark side of the planet, but actually the terminator sides (where it transitions from day to night) as temperatures on those sides of the planet would be temperate and most optimal for most forms of life. Unless, of course, the Remans had the technology to provide adequate heat, which they appear to have.

Crazy Credits

Both the letter 'R' in 'Trek' and the second 'E' in 'Nemesis' are presented backward within the words in order to introduce the idea of a mirror image.

Alternate Versions

50 minutes of fully produced but unreleased footage allegedly exists, including:

  • Extended Wedding Sequence - Originally, Riker and Troi's wedding was much longer and featured Wesley Crusher (played by Wil Wheaton) in attendance. (He is still sitting next to Dr. Crusher in the theatrical version) Also during the wedding, Picard opens up to Lt. Commander Data and reveals his dismay over being a private loner all his life.
  • The Seduction of Counselor Troi - In the original three-hour version, Shinzon's obsession with Troi runs much deeper and there are several scenes that show him seducing and tormenting her in her mind. A scene featured in the theatrical trailers show Troi struggling with the mind meld inflicted by Shinzon and his Viceroy. You still see the effects of the torturous mind meld in the theatrical version as Troi appears fatigued and psychologically drained.
  • A scene of Data teaching his brother B-4 how to eat with a fork.
  • Ambassador Worf and Dr. Crusher were also featured more prominently in the three-hour version and it was revealed that Worf was on his way back to Kronos after leaving Deep Space Nine and he was featured in more action sequences that were deleted from the theatrical release. Dr. Crusher is revealed to be considering leaving the Enterprise after receiving an offer from Starfleet Medical.
  • Footage of Geordi and Data planning and executing the mission to rescue Picard on board the Scimitar was also deleted and featured the swapping places of Data and B-4.
  • Extended ending - Riker and Troi board the USS Titan as he takes command as Captain and she resumes her job as ship's counselor. The instatement of a new First Officer on the Enterprise is shown. Picard bids farewell to Dr. Crusher as she accepts the offer from Starfleet Medical and leaves for San Francisco.
