Default Happy 7th Anniversary Nemesis!

Now, I know that this wasn't the most popular Star Trek film...in the least, but it should still be recognized since it is a Star Trek film. Happy Birthday Nemesis!

If you don't mind, I'll pass on that particular 'celebration'.

That's clever with the two threads.
I get it

Picard says that the movie did not have nearly enough buggy-driving.



I think that with all the midlife crisis nonsense, the vampires from the dark side of the moon who smoke Romulans for breakfast and this fellow who was mistreated by Rommies yet wants to blow up Earth, it was the movie in which Trek "jumped the Argo".



But I really like some parts of the movie. Mainly the cut-out character scenes.

Plus, the Argo kinda looked like something B.A Barracus would cook up!

I'll celebrate it happily.

The best of the TNG films. Proving that (just like you might think you know someone in real life) you never truly know a fictional character at all, no matter what your preconceptions. Great action. Big screen feel. (Lots of fanboyism though...and some technical faux pas--how did the Ent-E go from 24 to 29 decks?-- that even make me flinch) Can't believe it's already 7 years since the movie came out.

Happy seventh, Nemesis. It's too bad you were so mishandled. You had a lot of potential.

...and a big ship diagram that showed an early concept and not the real ship.

I don't. Is it one of those things that's only clever if you don't spell it out?

(Oh. I may have just gotten it.)

Happy birthday Nemesis. You were the unwanted child, and we probably never treated you fairly. Your oldest siblings aspired to be more than they were, while most of your not-so-old siblings did not. By the time you came along, we no longer had high expectations for you, so you probably never had a fair chance to let us down in the first place.

So for what it's worth, Happy Birthday. No cake or ice cream for you though. Nothing personal. It's just that time of year again, and we sort of forget your day anyway what with The Two Towers and all. Sucks to be you.

We no longer blame you for ruining Star Trek. In fact some of us actually thank you for it. It couldn't have happened fast enough -and most certainly didn't- but you may still have helped in some way to speed the process along. And for that we owe you no small thanks.

And now if you'll excuse me, we're going to go marvel some more over your new baby step-brother's clothes.

Rather the same old baby with new clothes. Call the genocidal madman with Romulan connections Nero instead of Shinzon, call the spiky ship with the WMD aboard Narada instead of Scimitar and the unwanted child becomes the favourite child? No friggin' way.
