I'd say INS tried a lot harder than NEM and STID, which just looked at the most popular Star Trek movie and tried to remake it.

INS is a case of too many people pushing in different directions. I enjoy it, but it's a mess. First Contact is flawed, but has a clearer direction to it.

I was referring to trying to make it a movie with an epic scope, not trying to make it a good movie, of course they all tried to make good movies.

INS was the only movie deliberately written to have a small scope, so as not to try to "outdo" a previous movie that was an epic action movie. They were aiming low from the beginning.

NEM and STID are both clearly movies that are meant to be grand and epic.
