Re: Remember STAR TREK: NEMESIS?

Honestly, I don't understand why Nemesis is trashed as much as it is (Other than Fan expectations it should have tied into DS9's Dominion Arc, when Romulans were known to be in it), it wasn't perfect, and not even great, but, IMHO, it was miles above Insurrection
I suspect part of the problem for Nemesis was timing. It was the first Star Trek movie to come out after fan-friendly big-budget SF/F was becoming more common. I think, had it been released in the mid-late 1990s, it would have done fine. But between Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, The Matrix, Spider-Man, & the Star Wars prequels, the expectations for what a sci-fi action movie should be were just so different from what Star Trek: Nemesis provided.
