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.
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
The cast, in particular, Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis, and LeVar Burton, have levelled fierce criticism at Stuart Baird over his direction of this movie, claiming he hated the Star Trek universe, and knew nothing about it. For his part, Baird expresses his frustration in the DVD commentary at having to tell a story in an established universe with pre-existing design and character relationships, hated having to utilize recycled sets and props, and had trouble remembering the names of the main cast.

During the wedding reception Data refers to jazz as an "archaic musical form", even though everyone in the room seems to be familiar with jazz and is dancing correctly. Even Worf knows who the composer of Blue Skies is. Jazz has been featured prominently throughout TNG's seven seasons, as well as in DS9 and Voyager. However, the term "archaic" simply means old-fashioned, and since Star Trek is set in the 24th century, Data is correct. 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 ...

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 series star Wil Wheaton in attendance. (He is still sitting next to Dr. Crusher in the theatrical version) Also during the wedding Picard opens up to Commander Data and reveals his dismay over being a private loner all his life.
The Seduction of Counselor Troi - In the original 3 hour cut 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 tortureous 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 3 hour cut 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 cut 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 cut 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 ships' 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.
Star Trek: Nemesis is a good movie with a pretty decent storyline that kind of gets to the point too quickly but is fun and action packed,unlike Insurrection,that is very slow paced,and I thought Nemesis was much better.The cast are still as strong as ever,just like every other Star Trek,but I found it disappointing for the fact that it was the Next Generation crew's final adventure,it didn't really go out with a pleasing ending like the Undiscovered Country did with the original crew,and it sort of ended like there was going to be more,but there never will be.A lot of be wouldn't agree with me when I call it enjoyable,a lot of fans really hated this,I didn't really see why,I thought the set up and especially the villain was very good,it isn't the best Star Trek,but it's certainly not the worst.Fans will definitely be disappointed by Nemesis and will feel like you didn't get to properly say goodbye to the crew,but its still a fun and action packed Star Trek adventure.
The crew is sent to the planet of the Romulus as they want to declare peace,little does the crew know it is a trick to take over the planet Earth.
