Did Nemesis feel like a Star Trek story? No, certainly not, but the world it took place in still looked like Star Trek. This new film, it doesn't, it resembles Star Trek somewhat but it pretty much looks like a completely different world, which I guess is because it's in an alternate timeline.

Nemesis will not even touch Star Trek XI, XI will be that good.

I hope for the franchise's sake that XI is 200% better than Nemesis.

In my personal opinion, Nemesis was the "big screen" movie that the Next Gen films needed...and did that quite well. Sure, it was full of flaws, but it looked (and still looks) more like a big screen movie than Generations, First Contact, and Insurrection. And it had tons of action.

if you liked it don't be offended. You're allowed to like things others don't.

I liked Nemesis...and I think you can compare it's "popularity" to "Final Frontier"...it's either a love or hate relationship with it.

I think that the new movie may fall into the "Voyage Home" group...a Trek movie that appeals to not just Trekkers but non-Trekkers as well.

Oh, no, no...Saquist, please don't take my counterstatement as hostile or defensive. Certainly not meant that way. (That's why I added a smiley to take any edge off. )

Believe me, I fully understand the nature of Nemesis, and how it, probably more than any Trek film before it, pretty much cleft the Trek fanbase in twain. Sometimes I've seen forums go all furs a flyin' over this movie....and NO movie is worth it. I certainly do not wish to start that trend here, and if there was any misunderstanding of my response, I wholeheartedly apologize.

I would certainly like to see that...(even though Voyage Home was one of my least favored of the TOS films, it certainly had that mass appeal that few other Trek movies could lay claim to.)
