Six Years Later, and Nemesis Still Sucks.

So I was watching Star Trek Nemesis the other night to conclude watching through all ten movies in a row, and Nemesis is still mind bogglingly insulting in how bad it is. The link above does a better job than I could in illustrating how bad it is, but if they didn’t cut so much out of the movie it could almost have reached Star Trek V levels of bad. They cut a scene where Picard explains more about humanity to Data, one of the best parts of TNG. That right there would’ve given the movie a bit more of a reason to watch; at least in the first half. As it is, the only thing good about the existing movie is that Riker and Troi finally got married and Riker finally got promoted to Captain.

  1. As far as I’m concerned Nemesis didn’t even happen. Most of the time in fact movies fail to treat characters with the respect they deserve since their priority is making as much money off of a single release as possible whereas tv shows are able to have a variety of episodes over time.

    There’s nothing wrong with movies having to make money of course, but mixing up the two always results in a certain unnatural character that doesn’t fit. Hey, let’s kill Data! Let’s give Picard a crazy clone! No, Nemesis didn’t happen and Data is still alive.

  2. I have to agree, Nemesis was an abomination of a movie. I cringe every time I see it on TV. Riker didn’t just want to be Captain, he wanted to be the Captain of the Enterprise! That’s why he never took a promotion or any other position in TNG series, because he wanted to take over for Picard eventually! Nemesis just makes me angry and as the above poster said, does not exist to me.
