Storyline

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 Blazer346

Trivia

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. See more »

Goofs

In his wedding reception speech Data refers to "Ladies and gentlemen, and invited transgender species." Though a welcome attempt at inclusiveness by writers, this makes no sense as no entire species would identify as transgender, a term referring to a person who identifies differently than the gender they were assigned at birth. A better choice would have been "gender neutral species". See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
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 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.
Praetor Hiren: That's enough! The decision has been made. The military does not dictate...

Good ending episode in the long running ¨Star Trek series , the New generation¨
19 July 2005 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

The film talks about the Enterprise crew that after celebration of betrothal between Riker (Jonathan Frakes) and Troy (Marina Sirtis) getting homeland , but the discovery a dismantled prototype of android Data (Brent Spiner) originates news dangers and risks . Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) then acts as an ambassador in the conflict between the Romulans and the Federation , but he receives the Romulans's intention of dealing with an important peace treatise . The ruler of Romulans (Tom Hardy) has an absolutely likeness to a young Picard and seems his dark wishes aren't clears but treacherous and taking off comes out.

¨Star Trek¨ series remains a landmark in the story of science fiction cinema and television . In this ¨next generation's ¨ incarnation find the usual saga actors , the previously named , plus Worf (Michael Dorn) , Levar Burton (La Forge), Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden )and her son (Will Wheaton) . Besides , there appears a masked Ron Perlman with a good make-up and other original characters making a brief appearance as Woopi Goldberg and Kate Mulgrew who is starring in her proper ¨spin off¨, Star Trek's Voyager . The movie has more comedy and romance than customarily made in the ordinary development of the franchise . As always , for comic relief is in charge of android Data , well performed by Brent Spiner . Humor, idealism , species' protection , humanity, trademark effects are several features that abound these films and will please the enthusiasts as well as the initiated viewers . Excellent effects specials are magnificently realized , courtesy of Industrial Light and Magic , I.L.M. by George Lucas production . This thrilling picture has a climatic and exceptional ending . Jerry Goldsmith's soundtrack ( episodes' habitual musician ) is spectacular and atmospheric . The motion picture was correctly directed by Stuart Baird . The yarn will appeal to hard core trekkers.
