Added DiffLines:

* ActivationSequence: After the ''Enterprise'' rams the ''Scimitar'', rendering their weapons inoperable, Shinzon activates the thalaron weapon, a process that takes about seven minutes as the targeting emitters on the wings are moved into position prior to firing.

* KingArthur: Arthurian legend is referenced especially in the last scene between Picard and Shinzon. [[spoiler:Shinzon pulling himself down the beam to make his final verbal attack all the more poignant is a parallel to Mordred hauling himself down the spear to aim a final attack at his father Arthur.]]



* PunnyName: [=B4=], Data's prototype. The name was planned to be [=B9=] but got changed.
** Picard [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this after learning B4's name:
--> "[[ContinuityNod Dr. Soong's penchant for whimsical names seems to have no end!]]"
* RammingAlwaysWorks: Subverted. While it did seemingly succeed in disabling the ''Scimitar'''s primary weapons (hence why the ''Enterprise'' wasn't reduced to space dust for its failure), it also disabled the ''Enterprise'' completely while the ''Scimitar'' still had impulse and warp capability. In the long run, howere, the ''Scimitar'' also had a damaged cloak, which would have rendered it a lot more vulnerable to the Federation fleet.

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.
