Apparently the Rockman Universe version of Roll does not handle stress well. But then, I suppose Dr. Right's usually around to tell her what to do.
Star Trek: Nemesis, the last Star Trek: The Next Generation movie, was due to come out soon, and I was super excited. After the incredible disappointment that was Star Trek: Insurrection, I was really looking forward to this one. After all, the odd-number rule said this one was going to be good.
I was incredibly disappointed.
For starters, the entire concept of Remans is fucking stupid. Why would you need to create an entirely new race of sub-"human" evil Romulans? Why not just have it be another faction of Romulans? And where in the hell did the idea of a psychic Picard clone come from? Who thought that would be a good idea? I don't understand why you couldn't have gone with something already established, like Sela and her group of Romulans. Sure, maybe Denise Crosby is getting on in years, but you could've recast her or something. Or, hell, get her a personal trainer and get her back in shape. You did it for Jonathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis. And B4? Seriously? I know Brent Spiner was getting on in years, but the entire idea of B4 is self-defeating. Why not just come up with some BS like Data decided to let himself age so he could see what it was like for humans? They could even have him experience aches and pains for some laughs. I mean, I liked the idea of a Romulan supership going to destroy the Earth, but the rest of it was just stupid. Oh, and the fucking stupid dirt buggy race on the planet? How does that fit with Star Trek at all, much less the enlightened nature of the Federation? I read that the writer was supposed to be a big Star Trek fan, but after seeing that movie, I just don't believe it.
