Is Abrams Trek a remake of Nemesis?

Pissed off Romulan screws with Starfleet officer to destroy billions in a personal vendetta- sound familiar?

Sorry if this has been noted already, I've been away a while.

Re: Is Abrams Trek a remake of Nemesis?

Hmmm. He uses some mysterious gobbledygook that we've never heard of before in a special weapon deployed from a huge, menacing ship with lots of pointy bits.

(actually, it's hard to find Trek films that don't involve super-weapons and mad-men out to destroy planets. kind of hard. I mean, not like you can't do it, but...you know what I mean. right?)

He kills a bunch of pointy-eared aliens of a familiar race.

A familiar character dies with unsatisfying impact.

....hmmm.

It's more of a remake of TWOK than Nemesis, IMO. With Nero in the role of Khan and the Red Matter subbing for the Genesis device.

And Shinzon is human, not Romulan.
