Nemesis would've been better received if it had been a better movie.
However, I think the TNG characters were out of steam by that point, and none of the other shows had gained pop culture traction. What JJ Abrams did was really the only way you could go with the movies - reboot as gently as possible.
And I agree with CoveTom
- Star Trek is designed for TV. Movies will always be too short, simplistic and action focused, because thats how movies must be in order to make money
