    I'm confused, the Romulans look like Remans, are they Remans or Romulans??? Is this to tie the movie to Nemesis???

    HELP?

    nero very much looks more like a romulan who for some reason did a job on his ears.
    but while i didnt notice he might have remans among his crew.

    Have we seen any Romulans other than Nero? He doesnt look like a Reman.

    There is clearly no similarity between Nero and a Reman. However, Nero does look a hell of a lot like Shinzon.

    Something is funky about Nero's ears, they don't quite look Romulan, maybe he had plastic surgery? heh

    From the little bit we've seen of him, he already seems to be a far more menacing villain then Shitzon.

    Nero's a conventional Romulan, albeit bald with scalp and facial tattoos. If he were Reman he'd be much more alien-looking and hideous. This doesn't mean there won't be a passing reference to Remus and the Remans in XI since both homeworlds perish in the tragedy that causes Nero to try to change history.

    I don't know, from what I've seen in the trailers, Nero basically is Shinzon with a tattoo.

    No offense, but from what I've seen in the trailers, Shinzon basically was a Nero wannabe without a tatoo. :rommie:

    [How's that for retconning?]

    No, no. Shinzon is ubndeniably a Khan wannabe, but Nero is a Shinzon wannabe. A wannabe of a wannabe. Sad.

    You probably got me there... Still, 'wannabe' is such a buzz word. Why don't we call it 'unintentional inspiration surplus'? :rommie:

    The first thought I had when I saw the promotional shots of Nero was 'He looks like Shinzon'. Hopefully, he'll be better than that Khan retread. It helps that Bana is a better actor than Tom Hardy.

    You have a comic shop within 100 miles of you?:vulcan: Give im a call and see if they have any copies of TREK-COUNTDOWN they can hold for you. If they don't there's always EBAY! Just be prepared to pay ''more'' for them.:shifty:

    You know what I just realized, and is great? Nero doesn't have those stupid stupid TNG Romulan forehead ridges. The ink's a little pointless but it's a net gain.
