Critic Reviews for Star Trek: Nemesis

Audience reviews for star trek: nemesis.

Here is the kiss goodbye from the TNG ensemble, although perhaps less than a kiss and more of a postcard. And so we are lead through this roadside museum/cafe/diner dedicated to the "the good ol' days', where nods are halfheartedly made to all the familiar and recognizable tropes of the television show, and all the nourishment offered is kinda old and lukewarm. Ho-hum. Warp out of here.

star trek nemesis cast list

It's difficult for a particular franchise of films to live on for an extended period of time, let alone a long TV series and 4 feature films. With uninspired direction and a gradually silly film, It seems that after 15 years, this iteration of the Enterprise crew just ran out of gas. Though 'Insurrection' did well at further developing the crew of the Enterprise, 'Nemesis' puts a heavy focus on its villain. This time played by newcomer (at the time) Tom Hardy. Hardy plays Shinzon, a mysterious character hell-bent on completing his Romulan mission with a background linked to Captain Picard himself. Although the dialogue isn't always the best, Hardy shows just how good of an actor he would become, especially up against someone as revered as Patrick Stewart. Director Stuart Baird supposedly had never seen an episode of The Next Generation, and the way he handled the direction and tone of this film definitely showed that lack of knowledge. I think his attempt at creating a story that felt very different from what came before is admirable, but too much liberties taken and you may have some upset fans. This also comes into play when you think about the strange inclusion of a brother to Data, and Shinzon being a clone of Picard. I didn't find either of those two story lines compelling, nor did it really bring anything new to that approach of storytelling. It's only when I watched the actors bring much more out of the dialogue that I realized there could have been something great here. If for anything else, Shinzon is an extremely active villain and Hardy doesn't waste the extra screen time, though I was a bit turned off by a unique communication device he uses early on in the film, seriously it's just uncomfortable (and not Star Trek at all) for the wrong reasons. With diminished screen time for the Enterprise crew, they barely leave the bridge, except for one out of place Mad Max style desert sequence. Nemesis is just one of those Star Trek films I can't seem to figure out. I can tell the franchise fatigue seemed to set in, but there's still plenty of good with the performances of the crew and the newcomer Tom Hardy. +Hardy showed promise +Picard and Data's performances -But their strange subplots were unnecessary -Director/writers uncomfortable plot choices 5.4/10

Final Star Trek film featuring the Generations crew is a pretty good final, before the J.J Abrams reboot, and it's a step up from the previous film, and it manages to be an effective blend of Scio Fi and thrilling action, enough to please fans of the show and films. Although not a perfect tenth film, Nemesis is a worthwhile picture, one that is quite entertaining from start to finish. A young Tom Hardy plays the villain here, and he gives the film's strongest performance. Here Hardy would show glimpses of what was to come later in his career. Add to that, a good story, and you have a worthwhile Star Trek film worth seeing if you've enjoyed the other entries in the series. Although not breaking any new ground in the film franchise, Nemesis is a worthy final for the Generations era of Star Trek films, and is a film that is also underrated. The film may be flawed, and it does fall short of what it could have been, but it does manage to be a highly engaging picture that is much better than what you might think. I enjoyed Nemesis and I thought for a tenth film, it managed to be quite good, even if it wasn't perfect. With that being said, there is enough thrills and entertainment value to be had here if you're in the mood for a fun little Sci Fi film. This one may not be the best Star Trek film, but it surely isn't the worst either. For what it offers, it has enough momentum to appeal to genre fans as well as Star Trek fans alike. This is a pleasant ending to the original series before the reboots, and it manages to be a pretty good final, despite the fact that it could have been a bit better as well.

Not bad. I don't feel that Tom Hardy's character does enough to hurt Picard for him to be considered his nemesis, though-kind of dumb considering this is the film's title. You also don't see Shinzon become any kind of complicated character-he doesn't struggle with any of his decisions, or does anything good, just evil. This is the only thing that really annoys me about the film. It wouldn't have been that difficult to make him a complicated character. This could've become a legendary rivalry between these two characters, but instead falls short of being great.

Star trek: nemesis.

2002 Directed by Stuart Baird

A generation's final journey... begins.

En route to the honeymoon of William Riker to Deanna Troi on her home planet of Betazed, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise receives word from Starfleet that a coup has resulted in the installation of a new Romulan political leader, Shinzon, who claims to seek peace with the human-backed United Federation of Planets. Once in enemy territory, the captain and his crew make a startling discovery: Shinzon is human, a slave from the Romulan sister planet of Remus, and has a secret, shocking relationship to Picard himself.

Review by Will Menaker ★★★ 17

The one I will defend against all comers.

I'm sorry but this one kind of owns, and I have no idea how it got the reputation for being the worst Trek movie. When you've got movies like Ron Perlman playing a telepathic bat-goblin you can't lose! If the studio and director had let Tom Hardy do a wacky voice, this could have easily been four stars.

This is a good example of what I want from a Trek movie. If it's going to be a movie, I need to see some big social and political upheavals in the Trek universe. The board has got to get shook up. The Nexus? Finding God? A planet that makes you young again? Save…

This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

Looks like we made it Look how far we've come, my baby We mighta took the long way We knew we'd get there someday

Finally did it. Finally watched every theatrical Star Trek movie. Sure, there's some JJ Abrams joints out there and sure I'll watch them in between Orioles games, but let's not bullshit each other. This is the real end of the line. I think it was John Legend of the Beatles who said "What a long strange trip it's been."

This is the nu-metal Star Trek, no two ways about it. It's bad but not nearly as bad as its reputation suggests. Early aughts badassery does not wear well on Star Trek, which I think goes a…

Review by 20oldboy03 ★★★ 4

Der zehnte , und letzte Teil mit der originalen „Next Generation“ -Crew sowie der letzten aus einer Serie stammenden wie hervorgegangenen Mannschaft, ist ein einziger großer Zwiespalt.

Der Zwiespalt beginnt mit der dankenswerten und ausnahmsweise doch relativ großen Welt, die endlich einmal das Star Trek-Universum aus ihren Vierwänden nimmt und uns eben die Weiten des Universums (bildlichgesprochen) vorzeigt – soweit der Beginn. Ein Punkt der gleichzeitig wie ironisch jeglichen Charme der Serie raubt – auch hier treffen die Ausnahmen die Regel.

Der zweite Zwiespalt beinhaltet die Inszenierung und Optik der 2000er Jahre. Positiv ist einfach die Frische der Kulissen/Kostüme und der Effekte. Die Schlachten haben Wums, Größe und sehen dazu echt gut aus, woran der Einbau von Miniaturen beiträgt. Dagegen steht wiederum…

Stuart Baird. Discuss.

One of the great editors, to the point where movies that have either run into trouble or are just seeking some sound advice have turned to him as a kind of film editing sensei to maximise their potential in the cutting room. I'll just single out Baird's work on 'Vantage Point' as a particular editing masterclass, given that particular movie's complex shifting perspectives and interlocking timelines. It's thanks in large part to Baird that movie is an any way coherent. So yeah, in that field at least, Baird deserves to be at least mentioned among the Coatses and the Schoonmakers as outstanding in his field.

None of that makes him a moviemaker though.

Baird has only three…

Review by Deckk ★★★ 2

100-word review: Using deadly weaponised thalaron radiation, the Reman Shinzon forcefully assumes Romulan Praetorship. Following the coup d'état, he professes a desire for peace with the Federation; the Enterprise is ordered on a diplomatic mission. Once there, however, our heroes discover that Shinzon is not only human, but also an acquaintance (of sorts). Nemesis continues the Star Trek tradition of openly debating ethics, this time focusing on a nature vs. nurture discussion with the characters of Picard and Data both being mirrored by duplicates of different upbringing. Unfortunately, that's all quickly abandoned in favour of an aimless, dull, and uninspired 'action' plot.

Part of my September 2021 Live Long and Prosper challenge; 10th out of 13 films.

The verdict is in! The only film worth seeing in the Next Generation film series was Star Trek First Contact!

HKFanatic

Review by HKFanatic ★★ 4

You could say the Next Generation crew is to "Star Trek" as Pierce Brosnan is to 007, in that Picard and company helped truly usher Trek into the 90's; and if "First Contact" was their "Goldeneye," one of the best entries in their respective series, then you might call "Nemesis" their "Die Another Day"—in other words, a franchise embarrassment that ends their tenure on a bit of a sour note.

The deck was stacked against this one: the plot centers around the Romulans, who had yet to feature prominently in any of the previous nine films, so if you haven't been keeping up with the TV shows you might feel a bit at sea here like I did; Tom Hardy…

Middle-Aged Genre Enthusiast

Review by Middle-Aged Genre Enthusiast ★★★ 30

“I’m afraid you won’t survive to witness the victory of the echo over the voice.” Yeah. Fine. This entry is claustrophobic and glacially paced. The cast is getting a bit long in the tooth and baggy in the hindquarters. The pacing is slack and the action is lacking. But I’ll be damned if this didn’t appreciate a fair amount for me on this, my first rewatch. 

And this moderate turnaround isn’t simply due to the 4K transfer, cause tbqh this one looks like hammered shit. After the aesthetic majesty of First Contact and Insurrection, Nemesis was a real Dolby Vision come down. The winning combination of Frakes directing and Matthew F Leonetti on cinematography from the previous two installments has…

Film details, brief synopsis, cast & crew, stuart baird, kate mulgrew, robertson dean, jonathan frakes, levar burton, technical specs.

After years of traveling the universe preserving tranquility and promoting goodwill towards humans and aliens alike, the intrepid Starship crew that Captain Jean-Luc Picard has long thought of as his family is breaking up. Officer William Riker has married Counselor Deanna Troi and now Riker will assume the capataincy of the U.S.S. Titan. As the U.S.S. Enterprise travels from Riker's wedding in Alaska toward Troi's homeworld of Betazed, where a second ceremony will be performed, Chief Engineer Geordi La Forge detects an unusual electromagnetic signature from the nearby planet Kolarus III. A quick search uncovers the dismantled pieces of an android fashioned after the Enterprise's own Lieutenant Commander Data. Back on course to Betazed, the starship is diverted once more when Picard receives a message from Admiral Janeway that the Romulans, longtime enemies of the Federation, have undergone a political upheaval, and their new leader, the Praetor, wants to discuss a peace treaty with the Federation. The Enterprise is the closest starship to the Neutral Zone; thus, it is up to Picard and his crew to respond and determine the Praetor's sincerity. Once in the shadow of the Romulan Empire, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the Enterprise crew are thrust into the center of a plot that could lead to the destruction of Earth at the hands of a new and chilling nemesis.

Star Trek: Nemesis

  • The Enterprise is diverted to the Romulan homeworld Romulus, supposedly because they want to negotiate a peace treaty. Captain Picard and his crew discover a serious threat to the Federation once Praetor Shinzon plans to attack Earth.
  • After a joyous wedding between William Riker and Deanna Troi, Captain Picard and the Enterprise crew stumble upon a positronic signature which results in a prototype version of the android Data. Then the Enterprise is invited to Romulus to negotiate a peace treaty with the Romulans by their new leader, Praetor Shinzon. However, Shinzon is revealed to be a clone of Picard who was raised on Remus, a slave planet to the Romulans. Later on, Picard discovers that this peace treaty was nothing more than a set-up on account of the fact that Shinzon needs Picard in order to survive. But little do the Enterprise crew know that Shinzon also plans to do away with the Federation by unleashing a weapon that could destroy a whole planet. — Blazer346
  • On their way to William Riker and Deanna Troi's honeymoon on Betazed, the Enterprise heads near the Romulan Neutral Zone, and picks up a prototype version of the android Data. Immediately, they are diverted to Romulus, where the new ruler, Praetor Shinzon, a human cloned from Captain Picard who lives on the slave planet Remus, appears to want peace with the Federation. But then the crew detects a break-in on their computer systems, and Picard is captured by the Remans because Shinzon needs him as his only matching supplier of genetic material. Picard and the Enterprise crew escape, only to find themselves battling Shinzon's completely cloaked Warbird, who goes after the complete destruction of Earth. — 42/103
  • The Romulan military offers the Imperial Senate plans to join forces with the Reman military and invade the Federation, but the Praetor (Alan Dale) refuses to cooperate. A green Thalaron radiation mist is released into the room, and everyone is killed. Meanwhile, the crew of the USS Enterprise-E prepares to bid farewell to longtime first officer Commander William Riker (Jonathan Frakes) and Counselor Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis), who are soon to be married on Betazed. On route, they discover a Positronic energy reading on a planet in the Kolaran system near the Romulan Neutral Zone. Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart), Lieutenant Commander Worf (Michael Dorn), and Lieutenant Commander Data (Brent Spiner) land on Kolarus III and discover the remnants of an android resembling Data. When the android is reassembled it reveals its name is B-4 (Brent Spiner), and the crew deduce it to be a less-advanced earlier version of Data. Vice Admiral Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) orders the crew to conduct a diplomatic mission to Romulus. Janeway informs Picard that the Romulan government has undergone a military coup and is now controlled by a Reman named Shinzon (Tom Hardy), saying he wants peace with the Federation and to bring freedom to Remus. This is a surprising development as the Romulans had regarded Remans as an undesirable caste used principally as slave labor, due to their long history of prejudice. Upon their arrival on Romulus, the crew learns that Shinzon is actually a clone of Picard, a remnant of a secret experiment conducted by the Romulans to take Picard's place in Starfleet as a spy; however, he and the project were abandoned after a political change in the Romulan government left him cast away to Remus as a slave. It is there that he meets his Reman brethren and effects his rise to power. It was also on Remus where Shinzon constructed his flagship, a heavily armed warship named Scimitar, with completely undetectable cloaking devices, an arsenal of weapons, and virtually impregnable shields. Though the diplomatic mission seems to go smoothly, the crew discovers that the Scimitar is emitting low levels of extremely dangerous Thalaron radiation, the same substance used to assassinate the Romulan senate as seen in the film's beginning. Several unauthorized computer accesses take place aboard the Enterprise, and Counselor Troi is mentally attacked by Shinzon while she is making love to Commander Riker. Picard is captured by Shinzon and is informed that he is slowly dying from the accelerated aging from his cloning process, and thus needs Picard's blood to live. Shinzon also transports B-4 aboard the Scimitar, revealing that Shinzon was behind the placing of B-4 on Kolarus III in order to lure Picard to Romulus. However, B-4 reveals himself to actually be Data - he rescues Picard, and they make their escape back to their ship. Realizing that the Scimitar is a Weaponized Thalaron emitter with enough power to destroy all life forms in a fleet of ships as well as an entire planet, Data deduces that Shinzon is using the warship to conquer the Federation and destroy Earth. The Enterprise races back towards Federation space, but is soon ambushed by the Scimitar, disabling the Enterprise's warp drive in the process in her first volley of torpedoes. In the ensuing assault, the Enterprise is outmatched. Two Romulan Warbirds arrive and assist in the assault, but Shinzon destroys one Warbird and disables the other. Refocusing his attention on Picard, Shinzon damages the Enterprise to a significant degree. Refusing to surrender, Picard uses his heavily damaged ship to ram the Scimitar, but only succeeds in slightly damaging it. Picard even tries to initiate the Enterprise's self-destruct sequence, but finds it disabled from the attack. Meanwhile, Shinzon initializes the Scimitar's Thalaron weapon in a desperate attempt to take the Enterprise down with him. Picard boards the vessel alone and faces Shinzon. Unable to stop the weapon from activating, Picard kills Shinzon by impaling him through the abdomen with part of a metallic support strut. Data arrives with a single-use personal transporter, using it to quickly beam the captain back to the Enterprise before sacrificing himself to destroy the ship, shutting down the weapon in the process. While the severely damaged Enterprise is under repair in a space dock in near-Earth orbit, Picard bids farewell to newly promoted Captain Riker who is off to command the USS Titan, to begin a true peace negotiation mission with Romulus. Picard then meets with android B-4, whereupon he learns that Data had succeeded in copying the engrams of his neural net into B-4's Positronic matrix not long before his death.

Star Trek: Nemesis – What Went Wrong?

Star Trek: Nemesis was supposed to lead into another Next Generation movie, had all gone to plan. It didn't. So what happened?

1996’s Star Trek: First Contact took $150 million worldwide, on a budget of $46 million. 1998’s Star Trek: Insurrection managed to swallow a budget of $70 million and only return $118 worldwide, but after the critical feedback about that film, surely a darker action film along the same lines as First Contact would jump the box office back up?

That appeared to be the thought pattern at Paramount, as it greenlit a further adventure for the Star Trek: The Next Generation cast. Star Trek: Nemesis was born.

The film, released in December 2002 in the US, would go on to take $67 million at the global box office, off the back of a $60 million budget. It’d sell 1.3m DVDs in its first week in America, and in the scheme of things, was a financial disappointment.

On box office numbers alone, the film wouldn’t have crawled its way into the black. But the DVD steered it away from red ink, the disc being one of the most pre-ordered retail DVDs in the US and UK come the time of its release.

But why did Star Trek: Nemesis take so little at the box office? Well, let’s leave the critical view of the film to one side for the moment, as it was nowhere near as one sided in 2002 as it is now, with hindsight.

Looking at other theatrical releases around the same time, this relatively low-budget film was up against the behemoths of the second Harry Potter ( Chamber Of Secrets ) and the second of Peter Jackson’s Lord Of The Rings films ( The Two Towers ). 007 was also kicking around with Die Another Day . It would be fair to say that the competition was tough.

Looking at the budgets and worldwide box office takings, Potter cost $100 million and took $879 million, Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers cost $94 million and took $935 million while 007 cost $142 million and took $432 million.

It’s not hard to come to the conclusion that the film simply got overlooked. After all, Star Trek is a product of the small screen and up against the cinematic experiences on offer from the other films, it’s hardly surprising that cinema-goers may have simply decided to wait to see the film… if they even knew it was out.

With movie theaters desperately trying to get more showings of the other films in each day, it’s no surprise that the number of screens showing Nemesis dropped dramatically, very quickly. Paramount knew all this, though. The decision to go up against   The Two Towers   was made specifically to catch those who couldn’t get a ticket to the sold out fantasy epic. Indeed the pressure from the studio, and Rick Berman as its representative, was to cut the film’s running time, with the alleged intent to allow it to be shown more times a day per screen compared with Jackson’s film running at 172 minutes. History shows, however, that this strategy didn’t work.

Nemesis came as a bit of a surprise, to Patrick Stewart at least, as with the completion of Star Trek: Insurrection  the contracts of the core cast (except perhaps, Michael Dorn due to his involvement on Deep Space Nine ) were complete and none had any ongoing commitment to the studio or further Star Trek films. It was a phone call between Brent Spiner and his friend (and huge Star Trek fan) John Logan, the writer of Ridley Scott’s Gladiator , that led to the film’s development. One can only speculate how costly a one-film contract for the cast would have been.

An underlying theme of Star Trek: Nemesis was supposed to be that of the crew moving on and the family that they had become branching out into new experiences and adventures. Not only were Will Riker and Deanna Troi marrying and moving to the USS Titan (with the newly promoted Captain Riker taking command) but cut scenes also made it clearer that Data was to become the new first officer of the Enterprise, while Doctor Crusher was also leaving to head up Starfleet Medical (again). Cutting the film for time took out 50 minutes of footage (according to producer Rick Berman), though it’s believed most of that had not been fully completed (missing effects shots and the like).

However it does appear that an awful lot of character moments – essentially the heart, the Star Trek core of this film, were removed, leaving what is often thought of as a hollow action film by many. Behind the scenes friction can’t have helped while filming, either.

In a revelation that will shock few who have seen the film, Stuart Baird (helmer of films such as Executive Decision and US Marshalls , and long-time film editor) had no knowledge of Star Trek before becoming director of Nemesis . He even refused to watch any of the Next Generation TV series to prepare (and reportedly went so far to say he hated the franchise, and had to be forced to watch the preceding films, allegedly), so it’s no wonder so many fans feel the characters act strangely.

It’s reported that the director even kept calling LeVar Burton ‘Laverne’ and thought Commander LaForge was an alien. If you watch some of the extras on the DVD and the extra-extras on the Blu-ray it comes across that the majority of the cast were less than enamored with the director.

Jeri Ryan was approached to reprise Seven Of Nine in Nemesis and the part would have required a couple of months of filming, according to the actress. This was something Paramount wanted and Rick Berman was intending to plug her into the film. The actress had more sense, and even had to tell the production team that Seven being at the wedding reception in the movie would have made no sense bearing in mind the character hadn’t met any of the Next Generation crew. As a result, Vice Admiral Janeway makes a brief appearance to give Captain Picard orders instead, which some fans found a bit odd.

Star Trek: Nemesis Deleted Scenes

The filmed scenes that didn’t make the final cut-to-the-bones version that was released included the Captain sharing a bottle of Chateau Picard with Data just after the wedding reception. Another was Commander Worf and Commander LaForge rounding up Commander Data’s belongings in his quarters following his apparent death, with Spot (Data’s cat) taking a shine to the son of Mogh.

The original plan for the opening credits was to show snippets of Shinzon’s life, specifically his banishment to the Reman mines, and the brutality he was forced to endure before his now Viceroy came to protect him. A much more abbreviated version of this footage was used later in the film in the end.

Watch Star Trek: Nemesis on Amazon

An unused alternate ending (also on the DVD and Blu-ray release), reveals the Enterprise in dry dock getting one hell of a refit, with a raft of new features, including a new Captain’s chair with seatbelts, demonstrated by a Starfleet engineer to the Captain much to Worf’s protestation.

In the same sequence Captain Riker tells the new First Officer, a Commander Martin Madden (taking the deceased Data’s intended place, and played by soon to be MACO Commander on Enterprise , Steven Culp) to take an informal stance on dealing with Captain Picard much to both Captain Riker’s anticipated and Commander LaForge’s on-screen amusement. Worf, again, was a little more wide eyed.

Thanks to LeVar Burton having a word with Rick Berman, Wil Wheaton finally makes an appearance as Wesley Crusher in a Star Trek: The Next Generation film. If you’re watching in widescreen, and you pay attention, that is. Wesley is seen at the left edge of the screen, during the wedding reception, in Starfleet uniform depicting his rank as Lieutenant in Engineering yellow.

However, here’s another wonderful little bit of footage,that was cut and really ought to have been left in. Wil had some lines with Gates and Patrick. The footage revealed that Captain Picard was happy to see him in uniform again, and though somewhat distracted by a young female guest, Wes reveals he’s gained an assignment on the night duty shift in Engineering aboard the U.S.S. Titan, Will Riker’s new command.

Watching further extras on the Blu-ray offers snippets of alternative or extended versions of scenes where more of the characters we knew from The Next Generation shone through the action film surroundings. Plus, there’s a film test of Tom Hardy feeling his way into the role of Shinzon (with obvious relish in portraying the distanced lost soul of the character) opposite an in-uniform Patrick Stewart. That too suggests more meat to their interactions.

In another documentary-type extra feature, LeVar Burton explains it was good to have John Logan on board, to look after the film’s characters. It’s not hard to take the inference that no-one else was, and Lore (Data’s other brother) is mentioned, suggesting that he had not been forgotten when developing the story. Does that, perhaps, suggest further cut dialogue at least mentioning Data’s evil twin?

Those extras on the DVD and Blu-ray release really do paint a picture of a different film that should have had a heart, and I strongly recommend exploring all the extras on the home releases of the film which puts a whole other light on the production… and leads you to discover Patrick Stewart’s enjoyment of the Argo all terrain vehicle as supplied by Ivan ‘Ironman’ Stewart!

Indeed even Patrick Stewart went on record to state (in an interview with Dreamwatch ): “I think if there was ever a real need for an extended edition of any work we have done, it would be Nemesis .” He went on to say “It wouldn’t be a Director’s Cut of the film..that may have been even shorter, but maybe an Actor’s Cut.”

Stuart Baird, however, commented that though Nemesis was “trimmed to the wire” and that any extended cut would be for the actors, and nothing to do with him.

What Star Trek XI Could Have Been

Star Trek: Nemesis left dangling threads, on purpose, as a story treatment for a direct sequel was already being worked on. The follow up film would have picked up on the slow re-establishment of Data’s neural net within B-4, as was hinted at the end of Nemesis . Probably in a way that was alluded to by Ambassador Spock, when he met his ‘old friend’ Captain Data, in command of the Enterprise-E in the official prequel to the 2009 Star Trek film, Countdown .

Other plans for the film included showing a little more of Starfleet than we had seen previously in the franchise’s cinematic outings, and according to multiple accounts, would have brought in characters from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager (depending on who was available). This may well have seen the starships Enterprise, Titan, Defiant, and Voyager unifying threads from all three series in a conclusion to that entire era of Star Trek , perhaps truly coming to the end of a whole generation’s final journey. Packing all that into two to three hours may have been a tall order.

Is Nemesis as bad as people seem to think it is? I would say not, and it’s not as bad as The Final Frontier or Generations . Would the film have been significantly better if Jonathan Frakes or LeVar Burton had directed? Quite possibly, but we can never be sure. Would it have made more money if either of those cast members directed? Not entirely sure it could have made any less, to be honest. A change in release date to avoid the competition would have helped it far more moneywise.

Unfortunately finishing off special effects and creating an ‘Actor’s Cut’ of the film is less than likely, so we’ll probably never see the film as it was written – just what was left after garden shears were used in the editing room.

Would such an extended cut be a better film? Based on just the deleted scenes on the home releases, many have suggested it would not have made that much of a difference. I personally disagree and the scenes mentioned above are part of the film to me. However it seems there is far more footage to integrate than those few scenes.

Would an Actor’s Cut be better Star Trek? In my mind that’s without doubt, but with that material being less ‘cinematic’ I am feeling that Star Trek is, and always will be, a better experience when allowed to be presented in a longer, televisual form that only a mini-series or season can bring.

Patrick Stewart

All The Star Trek Movies, Ranked

This is my definitive list.

William Shatner screaming as Kirk in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

There are so many Star Trek movies to enjoy -- 13, to be exact, and soon we’ll have 14 when Michelle Yeoh’s Section 31 movie is available for those with a Paramount+ subscription -- but which among them are the best of the best? That’s what I’m tasked with deciding here today, and I can certainly say there are some I like more than others. 

Opinion, by its nature, is subjective. I’m not sure I’ve seen any Star Trek fan with an identical top list of movies online, but I will say I enjoy most every Trek series I’ve watched. Therefore I wouldn’t expect this lineup to be too controversial, but I’ve been surprised before. Let’s dive in, and boldly go and make a definitive ruling on where each Star Trek series belongs. 

13. Star Trek: Generations (1994)

It’s a shame that Star Trek: Generations is near-universally panned as the worst of the Star Trek movies. Seeing Patrick Stewart ’s Jean-Luc Picard and William Shatner ’s James T. Kirk team up should unquestionably be the greatest thing that ever happened to the franchise. Unfortunately, the movie wasn’t quite all that, and what should’ve been a great introduction to The Next Generation crew making the transition from television to movies is a sloppy movie that delivered one of the most controversial moments in the sci-fi series’ history.

The movie killed off Captain Kirk by having him fall from a collapsing catwalk. I get that death comes for anyone in unexpected ways but in a scripted movie? They could’ve done better even if William Shatner had his reasons for how it was done. Still, the unique time travel elements and story has given this movie its fair share of fans over the years, so I’d say it’s still worth a watch. It wouldn’t be my first, second, or even 12th choice though, hence its rating on the list.

12. Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989)

William Shatner has undoubtedly played a big part in Star Trek ’s early success. While his acting work as Captain Kirk will live on for decades, the same can’t be said for his directing. That may sound harsh to say, but when Shatner himself admitted directing Star Trek V: The Final Frontier was a mistake , it’s kind of hard not to agree with him.   

I don’t think it’s unfair to say Star Trek V: The FInal Frontier is the worst of the TOS movies, especially after the streak of movies that came before it. With that said, had it not been for this movie, we wouldn’t have gotten the subplot in Strange New Worlds with Spock running into his half-brother Sybok’s lover Angel , who I do hope we’ll see at a later date. 

Watch Star Trek V: The Final Frontier On Max

11. Star Trek: Nemesis (2002)

Star Trek: Nemesis was, in many ways, a failure. The movie did not perform at the box office like previous movies and ultimately encouraged Paramount to go in another direction with its franchise. Critics panned the movie, and even the cast of The Next Generation was not a fan of the final project. In fact, it was why actress Marina Sirtis was grateful for Star Trek: Picard Season 3 years later, as she felt the cast was robbed of a proper send-off.  

The Next Generation crew dealing with a clone of Picard in control of the Reman people, played by a young Tom Hardy , sounds awesome. In execution, the whole thing fell flat. Even the memorable parts have aged poorly. Data, for example, was resurrected in Picard , killed, and then resurrected again. In fairness, Star Trek fans were glad to see him back in the mix again, but if they’re thrilled about a retcon to something established in Star Trek: Nemesis , it may speak to their overall enjoyment of the movie as a whole. 

Watch Star Trek: Nemesis On Max

10. Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979)

A lot of the older generation would rank Star Trek: The Motion Picture a lot higher than I have, and I think it's a matter of experience. Those who lived through the cancellation of the original series, only to see it return to the big screen after success in syndication? It was a huge coup for a new fandom, and the beginning of great things to come. 

I’m of the mind that Star Trek: The Motion Picture has gotten a bad rap as it aged, and suffered from being the first movie in the franchise ever made. There’s no way for younger generations to understand just how awesome it was to see the Enterprise from front to back. I still can appreciate it, but even the brutality of the transporter accident can’t stop me from glancing at the time on my phone while watching.

9. Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)

If there was a list of sins a Star Trek movie could commit to gain the ire of the fandom, Star Trek Into Darkness created perhaps the biggest. Trying to recreate a storyline involving Khan, the most notable villain of TOS , was going to set a high bar. 

Of course, these are the feelings of someone who is a true blue Star Trek fan. The mass audience reception to Star Trek Into Darkness was pretty good, and people were all about Benedict Cumberbatch as a villain. Even so, it wasn’t worthy of comparison to Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan , which is hard to ignore. 

Watch Star Trek Into Darkness On Paramount+

8. Star Trek: Insurrection (1998)

Star Trek: Insurrection had the impossible task of following up First Contact , which proved to be a huge challenge. Additionally, Paramount was interested in switching up the tone to something lighter than the previous movie, so the challenge to deliver to producers and audiences was high. 

Insurrection feels like a long episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. That's not a terrible thing, but when it comes to movies, the bar should be a bit higher than what audiences can already view on television. Frankly, Insurrection doesn't prove to be more entertaining than the best of TNG . 

Watch Star Trek: Insurrection On Max

7. Star Trek III: The Search For Spock (1984)

Similar to Star Trek: Insurrection , The Search For Spock had the insurmountable challenge of following up the greatest movie to date. Perhaps even worse, the third TOS movie had to reverse the heart-wrenching death of Spock in a way that didn't upset audiences. 

I think it's fair to say the latter goal was a success, but is rescuing Spock's spirit from Bones' mind as thrilling as a face-off with Khan? It is not, but it's still a decent movie, and one worthy of its middling status in this ranking. 

Watch Star Trek III: The Search For Spock On Max

6. Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991)

In hindsight, maybe Nicholas Meyer should've helmed all the Star Trek TOS movies. One can't help but wonder what these movies might've looked like had he kept runnings things post Wrath Of Khan . 

The Undiscovered Country , I think is a look at what could have been, and it's pretty damn promising. Of course, having big stars like Kim Cattrall and Christopher Plummer only bolster the enjoyment of a movie that feels like a return to form for the classic Enterprise crew, right before sending them off into the sunset. 

Watch Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country On Max

5. Star Trek Beyond (2016)

Star Trek Beyond is the newest film in the franchise, as Hollywood struggles to try and make a fourth installment in the Kelvin timeline. Fortunately, if there's never another one, the third movie is a delightful send-off to the Kelvin crew and all they accomplished, after Star Trek Into Darkness left a sour taste in my mouth, Beyond is the perfect palette cleanser. 

If there is any part of Star Trek Beyond that isn’t enjoyable, it’s that the entire crew doesn’t spend a ton of time together. Instead, they’re sectioned off with their own respective storylines, which worked well for the actors and their increased fame. Unfortunately, it feels like if they had found time to do more scenes with the entire ensemble, this might’ve been the best movie of the Kelvin timeline. 

Watch Star Trek Beyond On Paramount+

4. Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986)

The whale one? Yes, the whale one. It's always fun when a Star Trek project travels back to our present timeline, if only to remind us how strange our world would be to them, and how strange they'd be to us. 

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home is funny, wholesome, and a good time all at once. It's not the best TOS film, but it's pretty high up there in comparison to everything else that was released. 

Watch Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home On Max

3. Star Trek (2009)

J.J. Abrams ’ 2009 re-imagining of Star Trek isn’t just a great movie, it could be the most significant film in the history of the franchise. The Next Generation crew’s set of movies didn’t perform quite as well as the TOS movies, and Enterprise was the last Trek series in five years leading up to this film. Had this re-imagining of Star Trek in another timeline flopped, the franchise might’ve died. 

Fortunately, that didn’t happen, and the more action-driven narratives of the movie bled into the new generation of Star Trek shows. While there are critics of the modern style of storytelling and increased action, the fact that there are plenty of upcoming Trek shows in the pipeline and people still clamoring for a fourth installment of the Kelvin movies. 

Watch Star Trek On Paramount+

2. Star Trek: First Contact (1996)

Star Trek: The Next Generation didn’t have as much success critically or financially as the TOS movies, but it still managed to make one of the best movies the franchise has ever delivered. First Contact is required viewing for any Star Trek fan, especially those who wish to see the origin of how the story of mankind’s massive leap into space exploration came to be. 

The success of the movie solidified Jonathan Frakes status as a reputed director, and he’s gone on to play a big part in directing episodes of Star Trek ’s new era. This is a movie that I would say is so good, it appeals to even the non- Star Trek fans despite being heavily entrenched in the lore of The Next Generation . For that reason, it’s ranked among the very best. 

Watch Star Trek: First Contact On Max

1. Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982)

I spent far too many years having not seen Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan , but after seeing it for the first time , I can see the hype. I don’t think there’s any real dispute this is the best film in the franchise, as much as I love First Contact . Seeing James T. Kirk in the Captain’s chair in a battle of wits against a former villain from the series is not only captivating, it’s “fascinating,” as Spock would say.

Speaking of Spock, it's his noble sacrifice that lays out the entire theme of the needs of the many outweighing the needs of the few. A dark ending, to be sure, though of course, we all know Spock didn't stay dead! This, plus the fantastic showdown between Kirk and Khan make this the definitive best Star Trek movie, hands down. 

Watch Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan On Max

Currently, the Star Trek movies are available to stream either over on Max or Paramount+. It’s really convenient for anyone who wants to make their own ranking list of the movies, though I’d like to think no one can do it better than I just did.

Jonathan Frakes Admits Why Star Trek: Nemesis Didn't Work

Picard stands next to Riker

"Star Trek: The Next Generation" has impacted audiences since it debuted in the late 1980s. On top of the show's seven-season run from 1987 to 1994, the cast members appear in four feature films, and several of them reprise their roles on Patrick Stewart's spinoff series, "Star Trek: Picard."

Still, Lt. William T. Riker actor Jonathan Frakes mentioned that he wasn't entirely happy with how 2002's "Star Trek: Nemesis," the last of his and Stewart's big screen adventures, turned out. "With 'Nemesis,' it was as if the Fates stepped in. We had John Logan, who's an A-list writer. We had what was a great company back together again. Tom Hardy was a brilliant guest star," he said in the 2016 book "The Fifty-Year Mission: From The Next Generation to J.J. Abrams." "My take on it, though, was that there was not enough of the family. It was a little too much of [Hardy's] Shinzon and not enough of Picard and Data [Brent Spiner]."

Frakes is certainly qualified to speak on the creative decisions made with the film. Not only did he direct eight episodes of "The Next Generation," he also helmed the cast in the movies "Star Trek: First Contact" and "Star Trek: Insurrection."

Frakes believes Star Trek: Nemesis focuses too much on Shinzon

For "Star Trek: Nemesis," Jonathan Frakes handed the reins over to Stuart Baird, who previously directed Kurt Russell in 1996's "Executive Decision" and Tommy Lee Jones in 1998's "U.S. Marshals."

While Frakes didn't point his finger at the filmmaker specifically, he indicated in "The Fifty-Year Mission" that the film's lack of attention to the core cast hurt it. The actor argued fans come out the first weekend of a Star Trek movie to see stars like William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, Patrick Stewart , and Brent Spiner. Frakes feels that "Nemesis" is more concerned with the villain than Data or William T. Riker and Counselor Deanna Troi's (Marina Sirtis) relationship. "The story of 'Nemesis' was very much a story about the obsession of Shinzon, Tom Hardy's character," he said. "The front end of the movie with the wedding of Riker and Troi ... just got cut to bits."

Frakes added that if the scene had remained, there would have been cameos by cast members from "The Next Generation" series and a lighter atmosphere. "We originally had Whoopi [Goldberg] and Wil Wheaton and all of these Easter eggs in there, and Brent sang. It was a big deal that got cut up to nothing."

Star trek: the original series cast & character guide.

Star Trek: The Original Series features some of the most iconic characters in all of science fiction with the crew of the original USS Enterprise.

  • Star Trek: The Original Series debuted in 1966 and immediately developed a devoted following, eventually becoming a cultural sensation.
  • The show featured iconic characters such as Captain James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock, who have endured for nearly 60 years.
  • While the show has some aspects that haven't aged well, like outdated special effects and misogynistic undertones, the original cast remains intoxicating and capable of bringing passion and intrigue to even the thinnest of plots.

Star Trek: The Original Series - originally known simply as Star Trek - features some of the most iconic characters in all of science fiction with the crew of the original USS Enterprise. After its initial pilot episode was rejected by network NBC, Star Trek was massively overhauled with a largely new cast and a more adventurous tone. Star Trek debuted in 1966, and while it was never a ratings champion, the show immediately attracted a devoted following. Star Trek would go on to become a cultural sensation in syndication in the 1970s and was eventually revived as a hit film franchise as well as a series of successful television spinoffs that continues to this day.

There are aspects of Star Trek: The Original Series that have not aged especially well; the special effects are quaint at best, and the misogynistic undertones of many episodes are hard to ignore when viewed in the 21st century. That said, the original Star Trek cast remains intoxicating , a fantastic group of actors who could imbue even the thinnest of plots with passion and intrigue. There's a reason these characters have endured for nearly 60 years.

10 Best Star Trek: The Original Series Episodes To Hook New Fans

10 william shatner as captain james t. kirk, captain of the uss enterprise.

After Jeffrey Hunter declined to reprise his role as Christopher Pike from Star Trek' s initial failed pilot, "The Cage," he was replaced by William Shatner's Captain James T. Kirk . Where Hunter's Pike had been an introverted and weary man, Shatner's Kirk was a swashbuckling charmer , as likely to get into a fistfight with a Klingon as he was to seduce an Orion slave girl. Kirk was largely defined by his decades-long friendship with his Vulcan First Officer Spock (Leonard Nimoy), with Kirk's dynamic bravado bouncing off Spock's measured logic resulting in one of the most fascinating relationships in all of pop culture. For many, James T. Kirk remains the gold standard for Starfleet Captains.

Paul Wesley plays the younger Lieutenant James T. Kirk in Star Trek: Strange New Words.

9 Leonard Nimoy As Mr. Spock

Science officer and first officer of the uss enterprise.

Arguably the most important character in all of Star Trek , Spock was the only character to be held over from the show's original pilot ,"The Cage," though the character was reworked to be far less outwardly emotional. A product of a human mother and Vulcan father, Mr. Spock was constantly torn between his two cultures; Spock chose to live his life as a Vulcan, though he most often surrounded himself with humans. Spock's unbreakable bond with Captain Kirk and his chaotic, tempestuous friendship with Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy (DeForest Kelley) formed the central trio of Star Trek: The Original Series . No Star Trek character has had a greater cultural impact.

Ethan Peck plays the younger Lieutenant Spock in Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.

8 DeForest Kelley As Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy

Chief medical officer of the uss enterprise.

The USS Enterprise's resident curmudgeon, Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy was not only the ship's brilliant physician, he was among Captain Kirk's closest and most trusted confidants. McCoy routinely went on away missions or sat in on important meetings that a ship's primary doctor wouldn't necessarily take part in generally, but "Bones" was part of Kirk's inner circle, and the Captain valued his opinion. McCoy often clashed with his friend and consistent irritant Spock , as the passionate country doctor and the cold, emotionless Vulcan could not have viewed the universe any more differently. Still, they deeply respected each other, even if they'd be loath to admit it.

7 James Doohan As Montgomery "Scotty" Scott

Chief engineer of the uss enterprise.

Known to all as Scotty, Commander Montgomery Scott (James Doohan) wore many hats on the USS Enterprise, overseeing the transporters and serving as Second Officer. However, Scotty was primarily known as the ship's Chief Engineer, able to seemingly pull off technological miracles whenever Captain Kirk needed them . A proud Scotsman, Scotty enjoyed playing the bagpipes and drinking his scotch - perhaps a little too much. Scotty was skeptical of new, untested technology, preferring to work on machines he knew well. Prone to outbursts of righteous anger, Scotty still remained one of Captain Kirk's most trusted officers, able to get the Enterprise out of virtually any jam.

Martin Quinn plays the younger Lt. Montogomery Scott in Star Trek: Strange New World s.

6 George Takei As Hikaru Sulu

Uss enterprise's helmsman.

Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu (George Takei) was the USS Enterprise's primary helmsman under Captain Kirk's command. Generally a reserved, genial officer, Sulu quietly contained multitudes . When a virus drove much of the ship's crew mad in the Star Trek: The Original Series episode "The Naked Time," Sulu was seen bouncing around the ship shirtless with a foil in hand. He displayed considerable bravery more than once, which eventually paid off for his career. By the time of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country , Sulu had been promoted to Captain of the USS Excelsior, beginning what would go on to become a Starfleet career just as revered as Captain Kirk's.

5 Nichelle Nichols As Nyota Uhura

Uss enterprise's communications officer.

Lieutenant Nyota Uhura (Nichelle Nichols) was the Communications Officer on the bridge of the USS Enterprise. One of the few female characters and virtually the only Black character in a position of authority on Star Trek: The Original Series , Uhura was a revolutionary presence at the time the show was produced. Uhura was often relegated to being a background character, but she always shined when given the opportunity, whether it be flirting with Spock on the bridge or entertaining the crew with a song. Modern Star Trek has been much kinder to Uhura than TOS , but Nichols' immortal version is still deserving of praise.

Celia Rose Gooding plays the younger Ensign Uhura on Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.

4 Walter Koenig As Pavel Chekov

Uss enterprise's navigator.

Introduced in Star Trek: The Original Series season 2 when George Takei was unavailable while shooting a movie, Ensign Pavel Chekov (Walter Koenig) was a wide-eyed young Russian officer. Mr. Chekov was introduced not only due to Takei's absence, but also to acknowledge the Russians' at the time advanced progress in the 1960s space race. Chekov brought an innocent, youthful energy to the show, with a truly unforgettable Russian accent. Chekov was rarely the at the center of the action on TOS , but he was a character who was easy to like, and would eventually get to do some heavier lifting in the TOS film franchise.

3 Majel Barrett As Nurse Christine Chapel

Key member of uss enterprise's medical team.

Christine Chapel (Majel Barrett-Roddenberry) was Dr. McCoy's top nurse aboard the USS Enterprise. Chapel had an unrequited love for Spock , often seen pining for the Vulcan who could never give her the emotional connection she so desired. Chapel was a victim of Star Trek: The Original Series ' subpar writing for women characters in general, though things took a turn for the better by the time of the movie franchise, where it was revealed Chapel became a doctor and a full Starfleet officer. Chapel would get a much-needed reworking for the Paramount+ series Star Trek: Strange New Worlds .

Jess Bush plays the younger Nurse Christine Chapel on Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.

2 Mark Lenard As Sarek

Vulcan ambassador and spock's father.

Introduced in the Star Trek: The Original Series season 2 episode "Journey To Babel," Sarek (Mark Lenard) was the Vulcan ambassador to Earth, as well as Spock's estranged father . Sarek disapproved of his son's decision to enter Starfleet Academy, preferring him to live his life among Vulcans. The relationship between Sarek and Spock was deeply complicated ; while Sarek may have disagreed often with his son, he and Kirk risked everything dear to them to revive Spock in Star Trek III: The Search For Spock . Spock's fraught relationship with Sarek is one of the most enduring aspects of Star Trek: The Original Series .

James Frain played the younger Ambassador Sarek i n Star Trek: Discovery, which revealed that Sarek adopted Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) as a child and raised him as Spock's sister.

1 Grace Lee Whitney As Yeoman Janice Rand

Captain kirk's yeoman in star trek: the original series season 1.

Janice Rand (Grace Lee Whitney) appeared in 8 episodes of Star Trek: The Original Series as Captain Kirk's Yeoman. Set up as a potential love interest for Kirk, Rand's role was severely reduced during production , often relegating Janice to bringing her Captain coffee and pining for the oddly resentful Kirk. The reason Whitney was fired from Star Trek was later revealed by the actress in her autobiography to be because she was assaulted by a network executive. However, Janice Rand did return in the Star Trek: The Original Series movies, and Grace Lee Whitney also played Commander Janice Rand in an episode of Star Trek: Voyager.

Star Trek: The Original Series is available to stream on Paramount+.

Jonathan Frakes nails reason for Star Trek: Nemesis box office failure

M any things have been said about Star Trek: Nemesis, the final movie in Star Trek: The Next Generations list of movies, and very few of them are complimentary. The film was a box office flop, and none of the actors were happy with the way it turned out.

The movie was directed by Stuart Baird who wasn't familiar with Star Trek, and for some reason, the director didn't take actor/director Jonathan Frakes up on his offer to help. In The Fifty-Year Mission: The Next 25 Years: From The Next Generation to J. J. Abrams: The Complete, Uncensored, and Unauthorized Oral History of Star Trek by Edward Gross and Mark A. Altman, Frakes gave his take on why the movie failed. [ via Geektyrant ]

"With 'Nemesis' it was as if the Fates stepped in. We had John Logan, who's an A-list writer. We had what was a great company back together again. Tom Hardy was a brilliant guest star. My take on it, though, was that there was not enough of the family. It was a little too much of Shinzon and not enough of Picard and Data. The first weekend people came to see Bones, Kirk, and Spock, or Picard and Data, you know what I mean? The story of 'Nemesis' was very much a story about the obsession of Shinzon, Tom Hardy's character. The front end of the movie with the wedding of Riker and Troi, and which was so charming, just got cut to bits. We originally had [returning actors] Whoopi [Goldberg] and Wil Wheaton and all of these Easter eggs in there, and Brent [Spiner] sang. It was a big deal that got cut up to nothing."Jonathan Frakes

The fans would agree with Frakes as they'd gone to the theater to see the crew of the Enterprise take on yet another adventurous mission. They were hoping for something like Star Trek: First Contact. Instead, they got Shinzon and his issues with very little focus on the cast. In fact, most of the film was spent focused on the battle with Shinzon and his obsession as Frakes commented.

For many years, Nemesis was the last time we got to see the Next Generation crew all together, but thankfully, Star Trek: Picard righted this wrong, bringing them back in an epic ten-episode movie in season three. Picard did what Nemesis should have done; made the story about the characters not about a guest star and previously unknown enemy of Picard's. And, with any luck, we'll get one more adventure with the crew. Maybe, one day, we can all pretend Nemesis didn't happen, with the exception of Riker and Troi's wedding, that is.
