The Nemesis DVD is distinguished by excellent picture and thrilling sound, especially in the starship battle sequences. The bonus features are much more generous than the offerings on previous Star Trek theatrical films other than the two-disc special editions. There are four featurettes (46 minutes total) discussing the casting of Shinzon, development of the story line, shooting the action scenes, and the themes of family and change that run through the film. Director Stuart Baird contributes a commentary track that is a bit dry and sometimes silent. He mentions how he's not a Trek insider and that because he was working in an established setting he didn't have the freedom of creation that directors usually do. He also discusses the mechanics of shooting and points out where certain scenes were shortened or eliminated. Seven of the cut scenes appear on the DVD, some introduced by Baird or Patrick Stewart. They're interesting to see (and the alternate ending is pretty funny), but none was a great loss from the finished film. --David Horiuchi

Oh and Troi/number one getting married!? The TV series ended with her and Worf going off together. Not a big fan of that disconnect.
The problem is that the storyline was one that could have been handled in a normal episode. In order for a story to be worthy of a movie it needs to have the complexity and drama of Star Trek First Contact (my favorite movie of all time). First Contact succeeded where Nemesis failed. Nemesis did not draw you in to the characters; I really didn't care what happened to anyone, including those that were regular next generation characters.
The marriage scene was premature; I think that something like that would have been more effective at the end of the film. Perhaps have some tension leading up to it. The entrance of the characters could have been more dramatic if it had not happened all at the beginning.
All in all, as a star trek fan you still must see this film but don't expect greatness. Its sad to think there probably won't be another next generation film to redeem this one and it will have to go out in such a dismal fashion.
My main criticism of the movie is that I found the plot to be murky and the evil protagonist somewhat unfocused as regards his motivations and purpose. I also don't like the idea of "good Romulans" (spoiler omitted here). The best thing about the film is that it deals with the Romulans/Remans who I have always thought are the best "Star Trek" villains with the possible exception of the Borg.
If you are a Star Trek fan, you will like this movie. Those who are not will likely be less enthusiastic. RJB.
