Format: Hardcover
I am a long-time Star Trek fan and naturally I was happy with the announcement of this new film, the film disappointed (I won't go into why here) me but the book was simply stunning, through the last several novels JM Dillard has written she has constantly proved to be one of the finest authors, her novelisation of First Contact still stands as one of the finest Trek-books ever, and she does the same for Nemesis. Dillard goes into more detail of the characters and their motivations than the film had time to do, and includes a better story for the Nemesis of the title Shinzon. Naturally anyone who was upset by the film's lacklustre approach would enjoy this book as it shows you just why Star Trek was so good in the first place, rush out and buy it now

As you can probably guess from my rating of this, I have mixed feelings about this book.

On the plus side, it's well written (I would guess for a mid-teen audience) and is a fairly faithful adaptation of the film. It's certainly more comprehensible than the film, which on first viewing I found to leave a lot of unanswered questions. Some of these are explored - Shinzon and Donatra are given some more backstory, for example. And the main cast, especially Picard and Troi, are well handled.

But for me it's failings are that these are not fleshed out further. The book follows the film perhaps a bit too closely. "Tell me more about the Remans," I thought more than once. They, and other characters, seemed no more than cannon-fodder at times.

As a straight novelisation of the film you won't be disappointed. If you want to delve into the world of Star Trek and learn something new, you probably will be.

Star Trek: Nemesis 23 Dec 2002
By Joe Zika - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Star Trek: Nemesis novelization by J.M. Dillard and the story written by John Logan, Rick Berman, and Brent Spiner is an action-adventure book steeped in Romulan intrigue. This is a Jean-Luc Picard and Data book with an advisary that is very personal to Captain Picard.
We've been reading a lot in the Trek genre about the Romulans, but what about their sister planet Remus? This is the binary twin of Romulus, but with a very different and mysterious inhabitants. Remus is like our moon as it does NOT rotate and life only exists on the border of light and dark, but for generations Remus was nothing but a mining colony for dilithium crystals. Remus as a planet with a voice in the Romulan politics was never considered, but that is about to change.
The book opens with the Senate chamber on Romulus as it is taken over by the arch villian through proxy. Back on Earth under the pure blue skies of the Alaskan day Will Riker and Deanna Troi are about to tie the knot in a wedding ceremony. In attendance are all the major characters in the Next Generation Crew. Will Riker is soon to be Captain Will Riker and his wife ships Counselor,Deanna Troi, will be on a ship of their own, while Captain Picard will carry-on with Data as Number One. So, this is the last time that all of these principles will be together for a long time.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-E are abruptly diverted for a rather unexpected diplomatic mission, to none other than Romulus. The Romulan Star Empire is the last major power in the Alpha Quadrant... a longtime sworen enemy of the Federation has now expressed their desire to initiate negotiations for unity in the Alpha Quaddrant.
As Captain Jean-Luc Picard enters in negotiations, the Enterprise and her crew are faced with a threat that could jeopardise everything... even the destruction of Earth itself.
If you saw the movie, you must read the book as it fills in a lot of the gaps and leaps in logic that they left on the cutting room floor. There is action, intrigue, mystery and adventure that is non-stop as the book gives you emotions as the characters play out the story. I must say the movie does do
justice to the novel and the movie is true to the book.
There is a section within the pages of the book that has pictures from the movie and a section that is called "A First Look" that has stills from the making of the movie. This is one of the better TREK books with a believeable storyline.

Star Trek At It's Finest! 10 Jan 2003
By Kevin Spoering - Published on
Format: Hardcover
In this story the Enterprise finds a prototype of the android Data near the Romulan neutral zone, and soon after the Enterprise is called upon to visit the planet Romulus at the request of Shinzon, the new Praeter of the Romulan Empire. Shinzon has a mysterious origin, soon to be revealed, and he professes peace between Romulus and the Federation, but can he be trusted? This novel is full of intrigue and action, and becomes philosophical at times, in a well concieved plot, with good character development, a joy to read even after first seeing the movie. Much of this novel centers around Data and what it means to be human, including friendships perhaps worth dying for, very well executed.
I have seen the movie also, I consider it to be one of the two top films for 2002, no exceptions, and about as good as THE WRATH OF KHAN. The screenplay was written by John Logan, Rick Berman, and Brent Spiner, with the novelization by J.M. Dillard, all Star Trek fans in their own right and also great talent. John Logan gives a moving introduction here in this book. This is great page-turning science fiction.

First-rate 12 Jan 2003
By "sheryden" - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Thank God for book versions of movies. So many integral things were missing from the film; it was good to have a book to turn to fill the gaps. Overall, the book and film match. Don't get me wrong. But certain scenes that were apparently left out of the movie, but included in the book, lend crediblility to the plot. This is well worth your time.

The Last Movie? 22 April 2003
By Paul - Published on
Format: Hardcover
After having read the book and have seen the movie, I must say that the book is deffinately worth reading. I also thought that the plot of the book was a combination of Star Trek 2 and Star Trek 6. Questionable as to whether this is the true end for this crew or not. The story is left so open for another, but that is also to be expected. I liked the end scenes in the book better than in the movie. All in all I would highly recomend this book.
