Product Overview

Set a course for a galaxy of unparalleled action and adventure as Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) and his Starship crew battle a chilling new adversary...that just happens to hold a shocking link to Picard!

In the wake of a joyful wedding between Riker (Jonathan Frakes) and Troi (Marina Sirtis), Picard receives another reason to celebrate: the Romulans want peace and the captain will be the Federation's emissary. But as the Enterprise heads toward the Romulan Empire, a brilliant villain awaits-harboring a diabolical plan of destruction and an unimaginable secret that will give Picard his most fearsome challenge.

Costarring Brent Spiner, LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, Gates McFadden and introducing Tom Hardy as Picard's deadly foe. Star Trek Nemesis is "exciting! Inventive twist-plus the unexpected shoot sparks of surprise throughout the picture." (Gene Shalit, Today)

Editors Note
Note In STAR TREK: NEMESIS, based on the STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION television series, the USS Enterprise is gearing up for a challenging mission. While responding to a call from the Romulan neutral zone, the crew comes across a signal on the nearby planet Remus. It turns out to be Data's (Brent Spiner) less advanced brother, B-4 (also played by Spiner). Soon thereafter, Picard is confronted by Shinzon (Tom Hardy), who makes an offer of peace on behalf of the Romulans. As Starfleet enters into negotiations, they realize this treaty may have a twist. Shinzon presents himself as a clone of Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart), and as a simultaneous friend and foe. Though the baby faced Shinzon wears an intimidating shiny black metallic suit of armor, and spits his words through a nasty sneer, he is clearly no match for Picard. Meanwhile Data has a nifty side project debugging his clone, whose intentions are not as innocent as they may seem. As tension mounts between the crew of the Starship Enterprise and Shinzon's Reman minions, resulting in riveting high-tech deep-space battle, a vital sacrifice must be made to save the day. STAR TREK: NEMESIS's shocking ending will leave viewers hanging, anxiously awaiting the next installment in the series.

ReviewSource San Francisco Examiner
Review Watching 1998's Insurrection made one long for the quality of the 1987-94 TV series, while Nemesis simply reminds one of some of the series' lesser entries. It's an improvement, but not an overwhelming one. Neither film stands up to the warmth and energy of Star Trek: First Contact (1996), which boasted heavyweights like James Cromwell and Alfre Woodard to help loosen things up.But the lack of vigor is most clearly felt when Nemesis tries to crib a trick or two from some of the earlier films with the intention of wrenching a few hearts. Even this device (which I won't reveal) comes across as strangely cold and rushed.What hurts most of all is that the last four years comprise the longest period ever between Star Trek sequels, and the momentum feels all but squelched. Nemesis doesn't leave us with enough confidence that an 11th movie will be worth anyone's time.

Review It's true that the Star Trek movies, and Nemesis is only partially an exception, have an air of pokey earnestness about them. No one is going to say they have the narrative propulsion of a runaway train, no matter who writes and directs them. And, with Stewart and in this case Hardy very much the exceptions, no one is going to say they are memorably acted. Familiarity and continuity are what the success of this series has always been about. We've been here before, and we like the neighborhood.
