Default Did Nero Have a Legitamite Greivance against the Federation?

Nero claims the Federation didn't come to the assistance of Romulus as it was being destroyed, if that's true, then isn't Nero justified in being pi$$ed at the Federation and seeking its destruction? Doesn't sound like the Federation i know of. But i would say Yes. Just call me a Nero in the making.

Destruction? No. But I did wonder what made the supernova destroy Romulus sooner than calculated. Was it just a miscalculation? Or were there perhaps sinister forces at work? (cue ominous music)

I think the Vulcans refused to give Nero the red matter technology because the needs of the Federation outweigh the needs of Romulus.

That makes sense, but it still doesn't make sense that the Vulcans or the Federation would refuse to use the technology to help the Romulans themselves. Unless Romulus refused the help if it couldn't get its hands on the technology? Would that be why Spock was taking the red matter personally? Because the Romulans knew him so they would let him in but not other Feds?

I don't know.. but Nero needed his creepy motivations to move the story along.

They wanted to, that was Spock's mission.

Their best shot at stopping a supernova failed: such is the nature of supernovas.

The Federation did do anything...
He's just Shinzon-ing his hate for a person onto the government.
Bush/ America, Osama/ Arab, Hitler/ German.

Quite illogical.

Ok, but do we know that Nero's future is the TNG future we know? Could his "reality" be another reality we haven't seen yet?
