Is this a lame attempt to start a flame war by insinuating that those who do not believe in god are all going to 'hell'? Yawn........ thank you for reminding me that this forum is dying.

Who says he died? I don't remember the movie being that conclusive, I'm maybe wrong, but didn't he just get sucked into the black hole. Considering how mad blackholes work in this Star Trek...anything could have happened!!!

Well, last time I saw the movie his ship was blown to smithereens.
Then again it is Trek and you are not dead if the writers don't want you to be.
The again I fail to see why they would want to reuse Nero. If they want Bana again, a new makeup et voil*.

Death is seldom an absolute in the Trek universe anyway, blackholes notwithstanding - it's something I distinctly disapprove of but hey.......characters have been killed/brought back before so I guess Nero is much a candidate as any other.

I noticed Nero wading in water in the movie. Perhaps they would protect against fire too?

The Romulans are modeled on the Romans and the Romans were pagans, that is, they believed in many gods, national gods. But the polytheism angle was never really explored by Roddenberry, it is now being explored by Ron Moore in his new series Caprica, and was explored to a more limited degree in his earlier show, Battlestar Galactica. As for the Vulcans i think of their religion as more like Buddhism, to offer any human equivalent. It is more a philosophy, a worship of logic, mind, introspection, as opposed to any crude worship of anthropomorphic beings.
