I liked the alternate ending better as well. It had a more Star Trekish feel to it.

I am totally jazzed about the new Star Trek movie. My sister is a HUGE Trekker--she dresses in Starfleet Uniforms and goes to conventions & everything. I, on the other hand, just like great adventure stories--as well as great writing (shout out to all you BSG fans out there!). Nemesis, IMHO, could have been a better story if the writers would have created a better villain for Captain Picard--even perhaps brining a villain from TNG, like the Cardassian who tortured Picard was both a physical, psychological, and intellectual equal to Jean-Luc. In this case, it wouldn't matter the size of the ship--the ship shouldn't even be the main threat. The conflict would arise from two old military geniuses. The threat would not be Earth being destroyed, or the Federation crippled. It would be simply who would survive the inevitable battle: The Cardassian or The Captain--and who would succumb to a personal vendetta over duty and mission?

With that being rambled, from what I've gathered about the new film, they've got a great story idea (which is the most important thing to me, personally), pretty cool SFX, and even a great make-up artist so that which is not CG does not look like the lame Reman make-up (shudders). Great storytelling (which will hopefully be made known when we actually view the finished product), and great SFX: The hope of these things is what has me jazzed up about the new Star Trek film, and I think it will be better than the full of promise Nemesis.

I'll still defend V. Was it bad, yes, but somewhere under all those bad effects and the three breasted catwoman was a good movie.

I have to agree. And we also got another look into McCoy and Spock's back stories.

Good point! That lengthy scene between Spock, Sybock, Kirk and McCoy on the observation lounge was the best part of the movie. Great scene!

Debating whether Spock's memory of the first words he heard of his father (I always wondered why he could remember this, must be that Vulcan part of his brain as humans usually forget the first years of their lives) will be in the upcoming movie or whether Sarek will be portrayed in a similar light would be more interesting than the hundreth debate about the size of the new nacelles IMO.

I believe you are right on the money there Horatio!
