Maybe not, but I sure wish they would!

I haven't read this whole thread but this looks like as good a place as any to post my opinion on Nemesis. My opinion is full of Nemesis spoilers so.....
I don't remember films 1-5 well enough to have an educated opinion on them but I know the rest of them well. VI, The Undiscovered Country is my favorite, it's the only story driven Star Trek film that I've seen. Generations, First Contact, and Insurrection were all moderately entertaining but they were no better than your average TNG episode. Nemesis had lots of potential but it felt like they started a few plots but the only one they did justice to was the Riker/Troi marriage which was nice. Data/B4 was a huge waste, it's not like this is the first time we've seen a Data clone and the fact that there are an unknown number of them just waiting for The Enterprise to pick up their positronic signals from half way across the galaxy lessens the impact of Data's death. The cloaked ship that has the power to destroy all life on a planet was weak too, any war where one side has a weapon so much more powerful than anything that the other side has built isn't even worth fighting. The Romulans having grown a Picard clone could have been better had there not been so many holes in his story (they give birth to him, give up on the project, dump him on some remote planet where he's a slave and a few years later he's got his own starship????) but even a solid clone story has a been there done that feel to it too. Riker has one, Data has a couple of them, I think Troi had one and now it's Picard's turn.
I think this movie would have been much better with a simpler story. On their way to drop Riker and Troi off on their honeymoon the Enterprise gets called away on a priority mission. They interrupt some alien conspiracy to take over the galaxy and Data sacrifices his life to save humanity.
While I agree with most of the plot holes mentioned above, I think this was still the best TNG film by far. It's sad that it did so poorly at the box office and Paramount clearly indicated through the DVD that it would be the last. Ah well...
Saw it tonite... Anyone besides me notice some prominent EE, "haloing" if you prefer in some scenes. The wedding to be exact...????
