Trek Geeks #106: Star Trek Nemesis


Can you learn to see in the dark, Captain?” – Shinzon

It was a dark movie. Literally and figuratively.  It ended up being the last of the Star Trek movies with the TNG cast.  But was it a worthy finale??

This week, the Trek Geeks will give their take on Star Trek: Nemesis.  Their memories of the 2002 film are not as positive as other feature films, and they will jump right into the reasons why this was a less than stellar big screen exit for Picard and his crew.

Prime Directive violations, dark sets, “tired” acting.  This list goes on and on.  But fear not, there are plenty of things that the Geeks liked, and they will get into those too!

Plus, perhaps the biggest announcement ever from our good friends at Star Trek Continues dropped this week!  Also, a familiar face recently got to test out the new Star Trek Bridge Crew virtual reality game.  What did she have to say?

In addition, if you are attending San Diego ComicCon or STLV, you may want to make some room for a new con exclusive Holiday Keepsake ornament!  Finally, QMx is releasing a replica of a classic TOS piece of furniture and we have all the details for you!

It’s all in Episode 106 of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast! We hope you’ll join us as we raise a glass of Chateau Picard!
