    UHD Review Star Trek: Nemesis UHD Review

    Interestingly, I’ve heard Meyer speak in person before and read his autobiography, and he’s actually very emphatic on the point that in order for him to do what he does and make a good film, he feels it’s necessary not to be beholden to the history of the franchise and to focus solely on making...

    FWIW, I don’t think that’s what happened. Shinzon acquired the B4 parts. (Shinzon himself was a product of the Romulan secret police and it wouldn’t be a stretch that either the Romulans had already come into possession of the B4 parts as part of a similar project to them coming into...
