route to a wedding celebration, the Enterprise is redirected
to the Romulan homeworld. A civil war there has opened the
possibility of a peace treaty with the Federation. And the
Romulan Praetor has arranged to have the Federation brought
in to discuss the future of the galaxy. No more Neutral Zone?
An end to centuries of hostilities dating back to the first
encounter with the Romulans? Is this too good to be true?...
Trek: Nemesis tries to recapture the magic that was evident
in The Wrath of Kahn. Sadly, the movie never quite
manages to live up to its expectations.
junior edition of the movie novelisation, however, will help
young adults to understand a little better what the original
script had in mind. In the novel there is less emphasis on
large ship battles and lots of flashing lights and eardrum
bursting sound effects and more information on what is going
through the Praetor's mind. I felt much more sympathetic towards
his plight than I did during the movie.
there are a number of scenes included here which are absent
from the movie. There is a brief scene with Wesley Crusher
(only a few sentences) and an interesting plot development,
which wasn't even hinted at in the movies, which gives Worf
a slightly larger role. Did anyone else think it was strange
that Worf never mentioned the fact that Romulans were responsible
for his parents death? Well the novelisation goes into this
with some detail.
£4 this book is great value for money and even has a
number of colour pages featuring images from the movie.
