    Star Trek: Nemesis DVD Review
    SRP: £29.99


    The film is presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen. The print is flawless with no signs of grain or dirt, and the colours are vibrant and natural. There are copious amounts of detail in the image and the contrast range is brilliant with solid blacks. The breathtaking space battles are captured in all there glory and looks amazing when seen on a large screen, such as our review system. An excellent transfer.

    The Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack keeps up with the brilliant transfer, offering a hugely dynamic mix which keeps every speaker busy. There are plenty of excuses for over the top split surround effects and panning, and the LFe is thunderous during the battle scenes. The score is also well handled throughout with dialogue also benefiting from being clear and balanced. This is a lively and fun sound mix, with plenty of demo scenes for your surround set up, very good indeed.
    Star Trek: Nemesis Sound


    Well hats off to Paramount, after the poor initial Trek releases containing no extras, we get a comprehensive list here to look through. The first extra is a feature length commentary track from the director Stuart Baird, which is full of behind the scenes comments and stories for fans to follow. Next are four documentaries which are about 10 minutes each in length, consisting of Baird talking direction in Final frontiers, the story of Nemesis, a look at the crew as a family and finally the shooting of Action scenes. There are also some interesting deleted scenes, while not adding anything to the overall movie they are interesting on there own, especially the new first officer. Finally there are production notes and previews of other Trek products and Paramount features.
    Star Trek: Nemesis Extras


    As with all Star Trek stories these days, it offered so much, and failed to deliver, but the transfer and sound are first class.
    Suggested retail price when reviewed: £29.99
