There's been much ado about Nemesis being Star Trek; The New Generation, Franchise's Swan Song as of late. Well much will hinge on Trekkies and where they will weigh in on "Nemesis".

Unfortunately it does appear that TNG has suffered hull integrity breach and is hemorrhaging fans and support into the vacuum of Hollywood's discarded franchise heap-pile.

Granted "Nemesis" is not a "Wrath of Kahn" or "The Journey Home", but it certainly is not "The Final Frontier" either.

I took in two viewings of "Nemesis" and found that it stands up much better under a second viewing. I make this observation as a "Trekkie" and not a run-of-the-mill, garden-variety moviegoer; who for the most part hate "Star Trek" to begin with.

The plot in a nutshell is, while en route to a nude marriage ceremony, for Riker and Deanna Troi, the Enterprise is ordered to the Romulan neutral zone by request of the Reman's. The Reman's are a race of beings that live on the dark side of Romulus. On the way to Romulus they monitor some unique energy transmissions. They discover dismembered parts of a Data prototype, on a pre-warp-drive technology planet. While attempting to solve this first riddle of a Data prototype, the "away team" meet the Reman's and their human, or half-human leader, Shinzon. And to their utter amazement they discover that Shinzon is Jean Luc's clone, though a much younger one. There's an angry dark secret lurking beneath Shinzon's offer of peace and things will not end well for all as the surprising climax comes to a close.

"Nemesis" is much better then what the establishment movie critics are saying. It is up you, my fellow Trekkies, to answer this mayday distress call from the last generation of Star Trek adventurers you may ever see. Star Trek inspired us, entertained us, and opened our eyes to the greater possibilities of space and the human adventure. If you can't support "Nemesis" at the theatre, support it when comes out on DVD, pay-per-view, and rentals. Don't let this be the last of Star Trek.
