Re: Now That John Logan Has Proven Himself, What Went Wrong With Nemes

Drop the Remans, drop the clone issue, drop b4 and just start from scratch. TUC was a nice send off for the Kirk crew. This was just a slap in the face to TNG. Using the Romulans was a good choice but they didn't even end up being that big of a deal. It was quite frustrating.
Actually they didn't go far enough with these if they really wanted to make this a good film. When Shinzon first showed up and when they first started introducing him as a villain they made it really seem like he was a younger Picard and that he was more interesting. But soon after he just turned into a stock villain that is out for revenge against anyone for no real reason. I could actually understand his hatred for Romulans growing up that way. But his motives overall are poor and he just isn't that good a character. The Remans didn't matter at all to me. They just looked weird. B4 concept I didn't hate that much, but it was poorly thought out like the rest of the film was. The script needed a few more drafts and to be ironed out. Seemed like this movie never really got finished in the writing process before it was filmed.
"And in all of the universe, three million million galaxies like this. And in all of that... and perhaps more, only one of each of us. Don't destroy the one named Kirk"
