    Help Me Trekkies...

    Star Trek: Nemesis... I enjoyed the movie, but didn't understand one thing. Why did Picard's cloned pal have such a hard on for destroying Earth and the Federation? The Romulans cloned him, aborted the mission and then put him on that Godforsaken mining colony to die, not Terrans. So why did the plot have them coming after us????

    We couldn't figure it out. That's just too DEEP. :lol: I even questioned my ultimate Trekkie friend in AZ. He didn't know either. He said, however, that he will consult with his buddies at the Star Trek Experience in Las Vegas, the next time he's there, and let us know.

    He wanted to kill Pickard because he knew he was a clone, and he could not stand the idea of there being another human like him.

    The reason he wanted to kill the other humans was that the Romulans made him, and they instilled in him a hate for humans.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    The Star Trek Experience at the Hilton? Great place! Drank some Romulan Ale (highly illegal blue beer) and tried to pick up a Klingon wench! If any of you get to Lost Wages, check it out. Great fun.

    Okay, y'all are way more Trekkie than I can ever dream of being. But...

    I remember reading one thing criticizing the screenplay for Nemesis. It was under a lot of scrutiny because they let the guy who wrote "Gladiator", which was a very visual movie without a whole lotta plot, write this movie without a lot of backstory or knowedge of the Star Trek Universe.

    So, there were a lot of inconsistencies, and from what I hear, the Klingons at the Vegas thing were really upset about it.
    Have you ever seen a race of turtles, and they all go the wrong way instead of towards the finish line?

    The movie did seem like there was "something" missing in the plot. But then again, I am mentally stunted 8) The Star Trek thing at the Hilton is very cool. Museum, a couple of great interactive rides, a great bar/restaraunt (Quark's) and a shopping area where you can buy about anything imaginable about Star Trek. Including cases of Romulan Ale! I have a photo of me working my magic with the Klingon babe, but I won't post it. Inferior00BarFly is lurking and waiting to get back at me...

    I don't believe he was banned. He posts occasionally if someone hits his button, or when he has an opinion. I don't always agree with him, but he backs up his opinions with well reasoned logic... for a Cheesehead!!! :P Where are you Inferior??????
