** In Harve Bennett's first draft for ''Film/StarTrekIIITheSearchForSpock'', the villains were supposed to be Romulans. Spock's role remained relatively the same, except he goes feral and kills several Romulan miners when they were drilling for dilithium on the Genesis planet.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: ''Film/StarTrekNemesis'' was supposed to be the first Trek film to truly feature the Romulans, after being in the background through previous films ([[WhatCouldHaveBeen they almost were]] the Big Bad of [[Film/StarTrekIIITheSearchForSpock Star Trek III]]), but they were barely in it. In this film, Nero and his crew show what fearsome foes the Romulans are.

* JustHereForGodzilla: Many of the original fans only turned up to see [[spoiler:Nimoy as Spock for one last time. Not really the last time until Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness.

** Near the end of the film, Nero yells Spock's name as a reference to ''[[Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan Wrath of Khan]]''. [[spoiler: In ''[[Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness Into Darknesss]]'', ''Spock'' gets to yells the iconic '''KHHHAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNN!''' himself near the end of that film.]]

%%* StrangledByTheRedString: Spock and Uhura. Neither of them show any indication that they are in a relationship with anyone and none of their interactions with each other have any romantic overtones at all until TheReveal.

** Towards the end of the DVD commentary, Creator/JJAbrams mentions he talked to Creator/GeorgeLucas during filming, asking what would make this film better, and Lucas answered more lightsabers. In 2013, Abrams got named director of the ''Franchise/StarWars'' sequel trilogy. In general, the film draws [[SpiritualLicensee many comparisons]] to ''Star Wars'', making it even funnier.
** In ''Film/TheFinestHours'', Chris Pine plays a complete stickler for the rules who has to learn when it's okay to bend them.
** In an episode of ''Series/{{Spaced}}'', Simon Pegg's character, referencing the StarTrekMovieCurse, says it's a well-known fact that every odd-numbered ''Star Trek'' film has sucked. This episode aired in 1999, between ''[[Film/StarTrekInsurrection Insurrection]]'' (number 9 in the series) and ''[[Film/StarTrekNemesis Nemesis]]'' (number 10), neither of which is considered particularly good. Now look at a list of the films in the series and see which number the movie Pegg was in has...

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Is Nero an angry and vengeful man blinded by rage at the people who could have saved his home planet, or is he simply ''insane'', and driven off the deep end by grief and rage? A lot depends on whether you see his mission in this film (killing Spock and destroying the Federation [[FishOutOfTemporalWater in the past]] to take revenge on them for failing to save Romulus in the future) as an act of righteous anger or just the irrational death throes of a broken man with nothing left to live for. A common observation about the story is that Nero could presumably have warned his people about their planet's destruction if he ''really'' wanted to save it; depending on how you interpret his actions, either he didn't do that because [[CassandraTruth he didn't think anyone would believe him]], because [[RevengeBeforeReason he cared more about punishing the people he held responsible]], or because [[AxCrazy his traumatic experiences drove him crazy]].

** Apparently Captain Robau, who, in spite of appearing for a few minutes [[spoiler:[[SacrificialLamb before dying]]]], is [[AFatherToHisMen a]] [[TheCaptain total badass]].
** Lieutenant George Kirk himself, thanks in no small part to Creator/ChrisHemsworth's eventual superstardom, to the point that producers are actually considering bringing him back in ''Star Trek XIV''.
