It’s like Deja Vu all over again… Star Trek: Nemesis (2002)

Star Trek NemesisHas anyone else seen ‘Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan’? Good, cause you just saw it again. OK, so not in a direct way, but…

  • Long lost enemy: check
  • Dangerous new weapon: check
  • Ship and crew dead in space: check
  • Needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.. or the one really fave character who can be killed and brought back: check

Sure, Data didn’t grab anyone in a Vulcan face lock and say ‘Remember’, but then again. Picard faces a long familiar yet deadly Romulan foe, in himself (Tom Hardy in an early pre-‘Bane’ performance, yes that little guy really is him). Riker gets some ass kickin’ scenes, and Worf… where did he come from this time?

A Fond Farewell
I feel it may have gone a bit more streamlined or had been just a bit more ‘norm’ to it’s two immediate predecessors if Frakes had been at the helm, but Paramount had other plans. Billed as ‘A Generations Final Journey’, (You kinda’ wanted it to be by the time the credits rolled) this one all too neatly ties things up yet leaves the knots loose as hell.  Oh well, I guess all is fair in love and potential sequels.
