Re: Maybe they should’ve used the Borg for Nemesis

The problem with using the Borg for Nemesis rather than First Contact is that by the time Nemesis was in theaters, the Borg had already been used heavily on Voyager. People were sick of them.

Romulans, by contact, were still something of a blank slate and thus more appetizing to a movie audience. The problem is that the Romulans ended up being depicted not as the villains of Nemesis but as willing participants in Shinzon's plans for genocide until Donatra decided to stand up to him.
