Re: What sunk the TNG movie franchise: Insurrection or Nemesis?
Both films. They went big with First Contact, the story felt smaller with Insurrection, but then again there were a lot of changes to the script. Nemesis was their last shot to get it right again. There was a 4 year gap to get fans hungry for a new movie and a story that was supposed to be TNG's TWOK was envisaged. I think if it had been a success we might have gotten at least one more movie from the TNG crew.
