Re: What did you like about Nemesis?

I wish they wouldn't destroy Enterprises. It hurt in Star Trek III and it hurt in Generations.

It's not that I value the ship more than the crew - it's that it is an icon, a representation of something lost (and I am person who deals with change with difficulty) and watching the Enterprise blow up was like watching your childhood home burn to the ground. It worked well in ST3 because it was the only way to win the no-win situation, and Kirk was so visibly shaken by what he'd done, so I can excuse it. In Generations, it was the result of sloppy writing that seemed like they WANTED to destroy the ship at any cost.

I was glad they didn't fall back on this for Nemesis.
