The highlights of Nemesis

Can you believe it's been a decade since Nemesis?

A few of us decided to put on the rose coloured glasses and look for all the good bits of NEM. Here's what we came up with...

The theme music.
The mirrored lettering.
The new insights into Romulan and Reman culture.
Tom Hardy and Patrick Stewart's acting.
The Enterprise Transporter effect.

Hmm...that's about it. Your highlights??

Re: The highlights of Nemesis

I haven't seen the movie in 7-8 years. I'm currently working through the second season of Star Trek with my girlfriend. I figure we'll move onto Star Trek: The Next Generation next, after which we'll watch the features. It'll be the first time I've seen the ninth and tenth films in quite a while.

(I know it won't turn her off to the series, because I already let her sample a few of the best episodes of DS9, which she wants to immediately watch, but I'm making her watch it in order, pedant that I am).

I like the wedding scene, the crew's first encounter with Shinzon in that room is pretty cool, the battle scenes are decent, the "Scimitar" is very cool looking

I liked how they used Diana to track the Reman ship. It's good they gave her something useful to do.

Re: The highlights of Nemesis

Lots of cool stuff really: improved CGI FX, larger scale story, New ships and Romulan/Reman ones at that, better production design than previous STNG movies(as well as the TOS ones), Seeing Romulus in all its glory, better starship battle scene by far than any ST movie other than STII up till that time..

Careful, some of us might consider that to be a poor thing in Nemesis' favor

The only highlight for me was the credits and a hallelujah that the assault on all things Star Trek was suppose to be about was over.

Re: The highlights of Nemesis

Everything that wasn't a part of the mindlessly inane main "plot" was really good. Visually it was fantastic, the score was wonderful, and there were some great character interactions and a good sense in general that the crew was close. The design of the Valdore is another thing that I personally love.

It's just such a tragedy that all these wonderful elements go so horribly to waste. If only the Romulan movie had actually been about Romulans.

After 15 years

I liked that they finally used the Romulans on the big screen, though I wish they had stuck with them as the main bad guys.

Overall, a good ST action movie. Not the best, but OK.
