The Enterprise is diverted to the Romulan homeworld Romulus, supposedly because they want to negotiate a peace treaty. Captain Picard and his crew discover a serious threat to the Federation once Praetor Shinzon plans to attack Earth.
The Borg travel 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 Cochran 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.
After a joyous wedding between William Riker and Deanna Troi, Captain Picard and the Enterprise crew stumble upon a positronic signature which results in a prototype version of the android Data. Then the Enterprise is invited to Romulus to negotiate a peace treaty with the Romulans by their new leader, Praetor Shinzon. However, Shinzon is revealed to be a clone of Picard who was raised on Remus, a slave planet to the Romulans. Later on, Picard discovers that this peace treaty was nothing more than a set-up on account of the fact that Shinzon needs Picard in order to survive. But little do the Enterprise crew know that Shinzon also plans to do away with the Federation by unleashing a weapon that could destroy a whole planet.Written by
At one point, the script would have called for Shinzon to be an exact clone of Captain Picard, where Sir Patrick Stewart would have played both roles. But the idea of his clone coming to be from Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) season five, episode seven, "Unification I", and season five, episode eight, "Unification II", was not seen as valid.

At the end of Picard's first meeting with Praetor Shinzon, Shinzon orders the lights to dim back to their original setting; however, the lights begin to dim when he says, "Computer," and before he gives the order for the lights to return to their normal setting. 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 »
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.
On the eve of this crews final journey together we see the union of Troi and Riker. But their honeymoon and reassignment are put on hold when the Enterprise is summoned to the Romulan home world for peace talks. But the new Romulan council holds secret plans of its' own that may destroy earth. This is one of the more enjoyable of the series. The script is good with a lot of in-jokes and action. The story revolves around Pichard and Data as they struggle to come to grips with their choices and limitations. The effects are excellent and the sound mix is stellar. The jokes are funny and the action is satisfying. Everyone seems to wonder why this one failed at the box office. The answer was clear. The answer is clear the Enterprise was shot down by Hobbits. That's what happens when you stage a space battle one week before LOTR:TTT. This one should have done better after that Insurrection stinker. But I guess as long as the Trekkers are happy
