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

Did You Know?


This was the first Star Trek movie not to name the cast in the opening credits. See more »


During Data's briefing, we see Remus as being in an outer orbit compared to Romulus. But in a later surface shot of the Reman mines on the dark side of the planet, a sunlit Romulus appears in the night sky, which could be implying that Remus is in the inner orbit. Actually, this view is possible, if we assume that the planets do not orbit the sun at the same speed. The Reman factories shown could be near the demarcator and near the northern end of the planet. The only issue would then be that Romulus would be more distant. This becomes moot, however, when recognizing that no two planets could be so close together without their having extreme impact on each other's geology - forces strong enough to cover the surfaces of each with uncontrollable volcanic activity. This type of proximity is nothing new to Star Trek. See more »


[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...

THE crappiest Star Trek -movie ever
14 August 2003 | by kz7See all my reviews

I don't know where to start so here goes: Star Trek: Nemesis sucks. Terribly. The script apparently was thrown out early in the making. Next they brought in some corporate sponsors who brought completely unnecessary and (to Star Trek -universe) totally irrational vehicles in silly action sequences. (I'll dub this the Lucas -syndrome: The Movie Shall Have A Speedy Scene For Future Gaming Exploitations.) Then the actors just seemed tired at their parts (who wouldn't be after so much unchanging cliches?) and some were just casted in wrong parts. Star Trek was never about blowing things in pieces and Shoot-First-Ask-Later -mentality that seems to have grasped every small production company in the last decade or two. And in the end the action sequences sucked too (crappy imitation of heroism).
