Star Trek: Nemesis Review
The next generation crew of the USS Enterprise are about to go their separate ways. After 15 years together things are about to change, but not before one last mission. The Romulans want peace and request that the federation send an emissary. Picard and crew make their way to the Romulan home world and are greeted by Praetor Shinzon, the new leader. But things are not what they seem, and to Picards' disbelief, Shinzon is closer to him than he would like to admit. Does Shinzon want peace with the federation, or is there a more sinister plot at hand. Meanwhile the crew have also discovered another android, a lost relative to Data, but not quite the same.
The underlying theme throughout this story is about us all as individuals, are we unique? and do we all strive to make ourselves better than we are. This opens up so many possibilities for the story and scope for the movie, but in this case it is not explored as it should be. The movie just seems to rush everything, and there are elements that promise so much, yet fail to deliver. The special effects and space battles are superb and huge in scope, but as always with Trek movies the story suffers for it. This is a shame, as it would appear to be the last Next Generation movie in the series, and I can't help but feel that the whole Star Trek Franchise has stalled, becoming stale with a lack of ideas and direction, which could spell the end altogether.
