Just for fun I recently ripped my Blu-Ray copy on to my PC and spent about four hours doing a straight up rough cut edit of the movie. Nothing like The Phantom Edit just a slice-and-dice and I managed to keep the main story intact while totally removing the B-4 story all together.
How? Picard's escape from the Scimitar depends entirely on the B-4 subplot.
But than again, the entire movie depends on Picard being an action hero. They could have written that he simply picked the lock to his restraints with his nails. Makes about as much sense as seeing him wield a disrupter rifle in one hand and a disruptor pistol in the other while running in a dark hallway and still have better aim than the Remans. Those aliens who are bred for war......

You can easily make the case that there needed to be a new script. But you can't excise a huge subplot from the final cut of the film and have it make any kind of sense. Sorry.
