The Borg go back in time intent on preventing Earth's first contact with an alien species. Captain Picard and his crew pursue them to ensure that Zefram Cochrane makes his maiden flight reaching warp speed.
On the eve of retirement, Kirk and McCoy are charged with assassinating the Klingon High Chancellor and imprisoned. The Enterprise crew must help them escape to thwart a conspiracy aimed at sabotaging the last best hope for peace.
On their way to William Riker and Deanna Troi's honeymoon, the Enterprise is sent near the Neutral Zone to Romulan space, and picks up a prototype twin of the android Data. Immediately, they are further sent to Romulus, where the new Praetor, Shinzon, a human cloned from Captain Picard who lives on the slave planet Remus, appears to want peace with the Federation. But then the crew detects a break-in on their computer systems, and Picard is captured by the Remans because Shinzon needs him as his only matching supplier of genetic material. Picard and the Enterprise can escape, only to find themselves battling Shinzon's completely cloaked Warbird, who is after the complete destruction of Earth. Written by
In one deleted scene, in which Picard and Data discuss the concept of family (and emotions toward family), Data cradles a small flute. The flute is a treasured item of Picard's from Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Inner Light (1992), widely considered as one of the best of the series. In it, Picard lives out another life and raises a family of his own in a condensed, simulated reality. The flute prop was often visible in later episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987), during scenes in Picard's quarters. It sold at a "Christie's" auction for $48,000.00's. With other items from 40-years of Star Trek memorabilia. See more »
Towards the end when the Scimitar deploys the targeting arms they open to about one third then, just before Picard says "How long until he can fire" the shot shows the targeting arms completely collapsed. See more »
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 beg you not to let prejudice or politics interfere with this Alliance. By joining Shinzon's forces with ours, not even the Federation will be able to stand in our way.
That's enough! The decision has been made. The military does not ...

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. See more »
Ok. I'm a die hard fan. No, I don't wear the uniforms, but I have every episode of TNG through Season 5, and will have Season's 6 & 7 by the end of the year (2 more weeks!). I know just about everything there is to know (especially about TNG). So, that being said - I think that Nemesis was INCREDIBLE. I'm tired of hearing all of the complaints about how it did this or failed to live up to that. Come on folks! This was an amazing outing for the TNG cast...much better than any previous incarnation.
Let's examine what it offered: plenty of stuff for the fanboys. Wesley Crusher, Guinan, Janeway (and IMDB credits Dr. Pulaksi? Did anyone see her?)and references to the first mission (Riker remembers his first meeting with Data - on the holodeck, where he was whistling "Pop Goes The Weasel". Extreme action. Excellent special effects (the best to date, in my opinion). New technology - the ATV and new shuttlecraft & the Scimitar, and newly designed Romulan Warbirds. And also some very major events: the death of Data, Will & Deanna's wedding, Riker's promotion to Captain, the discovery of B-4, the first appearance of Janeway as an Admiral, first appearance of the Remans, and the allusion to possible peace between the Federation and Romulan Empire. The storyline was solid, and did not lull. And wasn't it great to see Deanna contribute to the success of a mission? What more could you ask for?
