When it was released on December 13, 2002, the TNG crew's fourth and final cinematic endeavor, Nemesis, was pretty much an insta-flop, both critically and commercially, and killed the franchise's big screen aspirations for several years. However, in this week's special Film Flashback episode, hosts Cam Smith and Tyler Orton, along with returning guest Tony Geluch, place the Enterprise E's climactic voyage under the movie microscope, and strive to determine the project's redeeming qualities and whether it deserves all of the hate so often hurled it's sorry way. Where does Tom Hardy's Shinzon rank in the realm of Starfleet-loathing villains? How does Stuart Baird fare as a series newbie director? Are the actors given intriguing and fresh material to play? And how satisfyingly does the flick bid adieu to this beloved cast? We answer all of these questions, and so many more, in this, our swan song spin across the silver screen with Picard, Riker, B-4 and all of your beloved Trek faves!
