''[[Film/StarTrekInsurrection Star Trek: Insurrection's]]'' poor reception began a downward spiral for the ''Star Trek'' film franchise, and ''Nemesis'' was meant to be a serious, action-based entry (just as ''StarTrekFirstContact'' was) to help re-invigorate it. Unfortunately, it was a pretty serious flop: it was the first ''Star Trek'' film not to turn a profit; it was the first not to open at the top box office slot, losing to ''Film/MaidInManhattan''; and ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings: The Two Towers'' opened the next week, causing its first-to-second-week market share to drop 76%. It also had the dubious distinction of breaking the StarTrekMovieCurse by becoming the first even-numbered film to be considered "bad" among fans.

* StatusQuoIsGod: Despite leaving Starfleet in the finale of ''Deep Space Nine'', Worf is back in his old position of tactical/security officer on the ''Enterprise'' without so much as a line of dialogue to explain it. In the other movies he didn't belong in, we got an explanation (in ''The Undiscovered Country,'' the TOS era ''Colonel'' Worf is the guy TNG's Worf is an IdenticalGrandson of. In ''First Contact,'' the crew of the damaged Defiant was beamed onto the Enterprise. In ''Insurrection,'' he was asked what he was doing there but the action cuts away before he answers; we're given a humorous UnReveal but the fact that he's stationed elsewhere and a reason why he dropped by ''this'' time exists in-universe. Here? He's just there, in full uniform from the start, manning his old station like it's still his station. Not even a HandWave, or events that make a FanWank easy.

A deleted line had him saying that he wasn't suited to the life of a diplomat.

* GrandFinale: For the Next Generation crew, and more: as the next film returns to the TOS gang in an altered version of history, it's the GrandFinale of TNG, of the whole 24th Century era, and of the ''entire TrekVerse as it has been from day one.'' The only thing that remains of the world that was is the original Spock - but ''he's'' sworn to secrecy about the future and actively trying ''not'' to be a living chunk of the old world, and with [[AuthorExistenceFailure the death of]] his actor, Creator/LeonardNimoy, he's the final figure from the Prime timeline, as Spock learns in ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'' that [[TheCharacterDiedWithHim Spock Prime had passed away by then]].

* CallBack: In [[Film/StarTrekInsurrection the last movie]], Geordi was amazed at Picard's acute hearing. Turns out that it was painfully acute when Picard was a boy.

* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:Commander Donatra arrives with two warbirds to assist the ''Enterprise'' and after realizing Shinzon was genocidal.]] Subverted, however, in that neither warbird succeeds in causing any damage whatsoever to the ''Scimitar'', which then cripples Donatra's warbird and destroys the other one outright, meaning that Donatra's intervention ends up achieving nothing]].

** While trying to reason with Shinzon, Picard tells him "Your heart, your hands, your eyes are the same as mine," despite the fact that TNG established that Picard has an artificial heart due to an incident where he was stabbed as a young man.

* NoMrBondIExpectYouToDine: Shinzon invites Picard to a private dinner, where he shares his backstory with him.



** Picard as a younger man has consistently been shown as [[http://memory-alpha.org/wiki/File:Jean-Luc_Picard_stabbed.jpg having hair]], or even [[http://memory-alpha.org/wiki/File:Jean-Luc_Picard,_2350s.jpg thinning hair]]. ''Nemesis'' presents a [[http://memory-alpha.org/wiki/File:Jean-LucPicardCadet.jpg bald Picard in his cadet days]] and correspondingly a bald Shinzon. Note that the shooting script actually specified that Shinzon ''did'' have hair at first, only for it to start falling out as his condition deteriorates ending with him being bald by his climatic fight with Picard, but the director apparently decided that Tom Hardy with hair didn't resemble Patrick Stewart strongly enough.
