** 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.

* {{Novelization}}: The film's novelization stays mostly true to the finished film, with several small scenes deleted from the film, but notably expands on Shinzon's motivations: Having bonded so much with the Remans after his years of slavery, he honestly wants the best for them, and intends to lead a galactic war to make them the dominant species in the universe, and it's made clear that with the ''Scimitar'', and the Thalaron radiation, ''he could have pulled it off''. The book also expands Worf's role during the final battle, and actually gives Beverly something to do: [[spoiler: Worf battles a few more Remans, and chases one into a cargo bay that's been converted into a makeshift hospital, only to be near-fatally wounded. Beverly stuns said Reman soldier, and with the help of Romulan doctor, manages to save Worf's life]].

''[[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%--the largest such drop in history. [[note]] until the notorious train wreck ''Film/{{Gigli}}'' trumped it with a 89% drop [[/note]] It also had the dubious distinction of breaking the StarTrekMovieCurse by becoming the first even-numbered film to be considered "bad" among fans.

** So to be clear: the series has established that quite a few members of the ''Enterprise'' are geniuses, and they know, by this point, that Shinzon is literally out for Captain Picard's blood. And yet, it doesn't occur to any of them that flying the ship into a gas cloud which prevents them from calling for help is a really, ''really'' bad idea.

* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: The ''Scimitar''. It breaks suspension of disbelief that the Remans could build, almost literally under the Romulans' noses, a starship custom-designed for their kind (it's noted that the controls are in Reman) and with the equivalent firepower of what has to be at least a few dozen top-of-the-line warships, not to mention its perfect cloak and primary weapon system.
