Re: Why is Nemesis hated so much?

Shinzon had issues. He also distinctly told Donatra she was not a woman but merely a Romulan. I think he got off on the power more than Troi.

It was said quite clearly that they couldn't transport due to interference/ion storms, it also meant their tricorders were limited, a wheeled vehicle makes sense when you need to cover vast distances without technology

Actually, why not just use the shuttlecraft? It flies, it can hover above ground, offers more protection and you can land right next to the parts. If there's a problem, you can control it with a remote control.

Dunno, less chance of attracting attention from the pre-warp people?

And how did that work out? I seem to remember our characters driving all the way back to their shuttle all while Worf was SHOOTING the pre-warp people like they were evil nazis. If they had just used the shuttle the entire time, all they would have to do is ascend and leave.

But let's be honest. If they were so dead set on not attracting any attention, they shouldn't have gone during the day time.

They were more shooting at them as a method of distraction but yeah there's some Prime Directive breaking going on there, in fact no one even mentioned it.

Re: Why is Nemesis hated so much?

I really didn't hate Nemesis. I just think it was poorly put together. Those missing scenes would have made the movie better for sure. What bothers me about the movie is that it almost seems like they were trying to hard to make everyone like the movie instead of appeasing the core fans. Insurrection was the worst and I didn't totally mind star trek generations except for that stewpid time thing that made zero sense.

Re: Why is Nemesis hated so much?

Nemesis is an ok movie if you're not familiar with ST,to me the thing that doesn't make me like it,is that they made it like some cheap clone of TWOK,with the bad guy wanting his vengeance against Picard and the federation,for something they had nothing to do with,when all of his hatred should have been directed at the romulans,and the part where Data upload his personality in B4 kind of cheapen his sacrifice.

As others have said Lore would have been the logical choice for B4,would have open the door to a what if story,who could have possibly stole or conspired with the enemy to give them the "body" of Lore.
