That one's easy. Beware an evil clone of you could be lurking anywhere, waiting for the right time to strike!
Exactly. And that's the point. The last two films made by Berman Insurrection and Nemesis what 'life lesson,' did we learn:

Insurrection: The federation is guided by morons. They give up the opportunity to cure virtually every illness including old age itself because 900 people don't want move.

Let's put that in a modern perspective. Let say the cure for cancer was in some South American tribal rainforest village and to cure cancer for the entire population we refuse to move 900 people. That's patently absurd.

Nemesis: The crew of the Enterprise are easily fooled by a effete French runway model that is allegedly Picard in his youth after the entire Romulan Senate is killed off.
Henh? That planet is still in Fed space. True, they've decided not to bottle that shit up, but I didn't hear them say that they wern't going to bring people to the planet and open some hospitals on the other side of the globe.

Also, I don't think Shinzon fooled anyone, Picard et al just have to make sure and tread carefully when he's got The Scimitar to back him up. Get rid of B4, take out some of the dumb mindrape stuff...more character stuff...throw in some final Romulan relations conversations since this is probably the last time we see them..you've got a half-decent movie.

Oh yeah, and get rid of Shinzon being a clone of Picard since that didn't make a lick of sense.
