The previous film's (''[[Film/StarTrekInsurrection Star Trek: Insurrection]]'') 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.

It ultimately became the swan song for the Next Generation crew and became a temporary FranchiseKiller, until Creator/JJAbrams' ''Star Trek'' rebooted the franchise with new actors playing new versions of the ''StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' crew.

Since Abrams' [[Film/StarTrek 2009 reboot]] explicitly takes place in an [[AlternateTimeline alternate reality]], ''Nemesis'' is also the last ''Star Trek'' film to take place in the "Prime" continuity started by Creator/GeneRoddenberry with ''StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' in 1966.

''[[Film/StarTrekInsurrection Insurrection's]]'' poor reception indicated a downward spiral for ''Star Trek'' film franchise, and ''Nemesis'' was supposed to be a good sendoff for the TNG crew, much like how ''[[Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry The Undiscovered Country]]'' was to the [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries TOS]] cast.

* ViewersAreMorons: The shooting script actually did specify that Shinzon was supposed to have hair, as did the younger Picard seen in a photograph. However, Rick Berman and Stuart Baird decided that the viewers would not accept Shinzon as being like a young version of Picard unless he was also bald.[[note]]Despite it being shown multiple times in the series that Picard had hair when he was younger.[[/note]]
