Synopsis: The promise of peace with Romulus brings the Enterprise to talks with the new praetor.

"Do you think this is a wise course of action, sir?"

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Denise Crosby discussed with executive producer Rick Berman the possibility of using her [Star Trek: The Next Generation] character Sela in the film, but they could not work out a way to properly fit the character into the movie.
  • Every previous [Star Trek] series gets some sort of mention or reference. There's a maneuver named for Captain Kirk from [Star Trek]. There is mention of the Dominion War from [Star Trek: Deep Space Nine]. Captain Janeway from [Star Trek: Voyager] has a cameo. And one of the ships that the Enterprise was to rendezvous with is the USS Archer, named for the captain in [Enterprise].
  • Jude Law was originally considered for the role of Shinzon
  • Instead of choreographing actors throwing themselves across the sets to simulate impacts, sets like the Enterprise-E bridge were built on gimbals to provide the shudder.
  • The four year interval between this film and Star Trek: Insurrection was the longest between [Star Trek] films. That record got smashed when Paramount didn't release Star Trek until 2009, seven years after this one.
  • Riker comments that he first saw Data on the Holodeck trying to whistle a tune, but cannot remember which tune. This refers to the [Star Trek: The Next Generation] episode, {"Encounter at Farpoint"}, and the tune was {Pop Goes the Weasel}.
  • Shinzon means "heart" in Chinese (Manderin).
  • The farewell scene in Picard's ready room, near the end of the movie, had to be re-shot after Patrick Stewart unintentionally started crying.
  • The Enterprise's Sickbay in Star Trek: First Contact and Star Trek: Insurrection is a redressed sickbay from [Voyager]. After [Star Trek: Voyager] stopped filming, the Enterprise suddenly got a different sickbay.
  • Patrick Stewart was paid nearly as much for this movie as he made in the entire run of [Star Trek: The Next Generation]
