Trivia: On the artwork for the widescreen DVD disc and the insert, Picard is shown wearing his old uniform from "The Next Generation," instead of the uniform he wore in this movie.

Trivia: In the scene towards the end where Picard toasts Data he says "to absent friends." This is the same toast that Kirk used in Star Trek 3 in reference to Spock.

Star Trek: Nemesis mistake picture

Trivia: Director Bryan Singer (X-Men among others) makes a cameo appearance on the bridge of the Enterprise. He's a non-speaking extra. When the Reman boarding party has beamed aboard and Riker and Worf leaves the Bridge to take care of the boarding party Singer is the officer who takes over Worf's tactical station. In the audio commentary on the DVD release Nemesis director Stuart Baird points out Bryan Singer's appearance and continues 'apparently he's a big fan of Star Trek'. (01:23:25)

Trivia: At the end of the movie, B-4 starts singing, causing Picard to smile because he knows Data's memories are surfacing. This is almost identical to a scene in Voyager when the Doctor was copied onto the matrix of Dr. Zimmerman to restore his program. It ended with Kes having the identical reaction that Picard had to B-4.

Trivia: A nice nod to history. Just after Shinzon orders attack plan 'Shinzon Theta', Riker orders defence pattern 'Kirk Epsilon'.

Trivia: At the end of the movie, where Capt. Picard is toasting friends and family with the wine, watch when they show the bottle. The wine brand is Chateau Picard. Picard's family has a vineyard in France, he visits it in one TNG Episode.

Trivia: In the scene where Picard and Data are reviewing a tactical display that shows the location of five Federation vessels near enough to render assistance, the last ship on the list is the USS Archer, likely named after Capt. Jonathan Archer, commander of the USS Enterprise NX-01 in the current TV series 'Enterprise'.

Trivia: At the end of the movie, when Riker is remembering his first meeting with Data, he talks about Data trying to whistle a song on the Holodeck. This actually refers to the Next Generation pilot episode Encounter at Farpoint. While Riker can't remember the song, fans probably can - it was 'Pop Goes The Weasel.'

Trivia: Other than the "absent friends" toast to Data at the end of the film, Dr. Crusher is nowhere to be seen in the final 40 minutes of the film after Picard orders battlestations.

Continuity mistake: In the latter half of the movie, Picard looks at a picture of himself from his days as a Starfleet Academy cadet while Beverly looks on too. This picture is actually the actor Tom Hardy (Shinzon, Picard's clone) and he appears with a completely bald/shaved head. Showing Picard bald as a cadet completely contradicts the TNG series. In the TNG episode 'Tapestry', a flashback set in 2327 (the year Picard graduated from the Academy), Picard is shown with a full head of hair. Also, in the TNG episode 'Violations', a flashback set in 2354 shows Picard with a partial head of hair when he takes Beverly to see her dead husband Jack's body. (00:46:25)

Suggested correction: It's entirely reasonable that he might have shaved his head for a time. People don't necessarily keep the same hairstyle their entire life.

Captain Picard: In his quest to be more like us, he helped show us what it means to be human.

More quotes from Star Trek: Nemesis

Question: If Shinzon is Picard's clone, wouldn't it have been easier to have Patrick Stewart play both parts? Tom Hardy doesn't even look like Stewart.

Answer: Shinzon was always intended to be much younger than Picard - the whole point is that he's a Romulan project that was ultimately abandoned - he hasn't gone through the accelerated aging process. Patrick Stewart could not have convincingly played a version of his character who was that young. And Tom Hardy does bear a distinct resemblance to a young Patrick Stewart if you look properly.
