Star Trek: Nemesis is a 2002 American science fiction film released by Paramount Pictures.
It is the tenth feature film in the Star Trek franchise and the last of the Star Trek films to include the entire main cast of the Star Trek: The Next Generation television series.
It was directed by Stuart Baird and written by John Logan (from a story developed by Logan, Brent Spiner, and producer Rick Berman).
The crew of the USS Enterprise-E are forced to deal with a threat to the United Federation of Planets from a Reman clone of Captain Picard named Shinzon who has taken control of the Romulan Star Empire in a coup d’état.
Principal photography took place from November 2001 to March 2002.
Jerry Goldsmith composed the film’s score.
The film was released in North America on December 13, 2002.
The film received generally mixed reviews, with publications criticizing the film for being the least successful in the Star Trek franchise.
The film went on to earn $67,312,826 worldwide, making it a box office disappointment.
Following the failure of the film and the cancellation of Star Trek: Enterprise, Berman and Erik Jendresen began development on the unproduced Star Trek: The Beginning.
Three years later, Viacom split from CBS Corporation and Paramount eventually rebooted the film series in 2009 with Star Trek by J. J. Abrams.
