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.
A century before Captain Kirk's five-year mission, Jonathan Archer captains the United Earth ship Enterprise during the early years of Starfleet, leading up to the Earth-Romulan War and the formation of the Federation.
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
Midway during shooting, the captain's chair from the bridge set disappeared, apparently stolen. While the film crew scrambled to find a way to work around the problem, the Star Trek: Enterprise (2001) cast and crew shooting in the soundstages next door decided to have a little fun at their franchise-mate's expense: Scott Bakula visited Patrick Stewart's trailer to present him with a makeshift wooden "replacement" chair with the letters K-A-P-T-I-N painted on it.

The movie takes place after the end of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine where Worf is given the position of Federation Ambassador to Qo'nos. Yet he appears here in a standard uniform and with no mention of his high ranking position. 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 ...

The Greatest Star Trek Film That Will Ever Be Made
Riker and Troi have been married in the Earth custom and are on the way to Betazed to have their ceremony on Troi's native planet. Along the way, they discover two things: a prototype android that bears a striking resemblance to Data, and a young human warrior who bears a striking resemblance to Picard in his younger days. The ceremonies will have to wait, as the Romulan Empire has been brought to its knees.
Wow. That's the word to describe this one -- wow. I watched "Insurrection" not long ago, and found it to be a decent movie. For the fans who wanted to see the crew travel and explore, it was a nice treat. However, for those who paid to see it in theater... it was a slap in the face. We were treated to nothing we couldn't have seen for free on the average episode of the series. Why bother with a film if you're just going to showcase characters for no reason? "Nemesis" doesn't mess around. The Riker and Troi saga finally enters the next phase. Data's history is explored, and he goes on one of his greatest adventures yet (the "free float" in space scene is awesome). Picard must face himself, the ultimate adversary... this is a film that taps into the characters' personas as much as it gives us action. There's even some romance towards the end... wait for it.
Some of the other characters get sidelined (Worf and LaForge are pretty minor here) and Janeway from "Voyager" is brought in for no good reason. But it works. We are given the characters we want most and a story of the Romulans that was bound to happen. As great of villains as they've been, they've never been discussed to their fullest possibilities. This film changed that, thank goodness.
If you're not a "Trek" fan, this may not be for you. But you probably wouldn't pick it up in the first place if you weren't, would you? If you are a "Trek" fan and haven't seen it yet, you're missing out. "Generations" was good, "First Contact" was good. But this is by far, easily, without a doubt, the best "Next Generation" film that was made... and since I do not believe they'll ever return to the series, it's the film you'll want to remember these characters in... pure brilliance. Brent Spiner, who plays Data and also wrote the screenplay, should be commended -- where was his writing prior to this one? Oh, and Wesley Crusher shows up for about five seconds, too.
