In this episode Mark talks about the tenth film in the "Star Trek" film franchise: the 2002 American science fiction film "Star Trek: Nemesis". The fourth film, as well as the final film, to feature the cast of "Star Trek: The Next Generation", sees Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) and the crew of the USS Enterprise-E be sent on a mission of peace to the planet Romulus - the homeworld of the Romulan Star Empire, a longstanding enemy of the United Federation of Planets - after the Romulan senate is overthrown by a clone of Captain Picard, called Shinzon (played by Tom Hardy), who is the leader of the Remans - a slave race from the neighbouring planet Remus - and who along with some Romulan senators plotted to engineer a coup d'etat to seize power. However, Shinzon - whose body is slowly degeneating - urgently requires a blood transfusion from Captain Jean-Luc Picard in order to stay alive, which leads him to conspire to draw the Enterprise-E to Romulus so that he can capture Captain Picard and use his genetic material, and then wage war against the United Federation of Planets aboard an advanced warship, known as the Scimitar, equipped with a deadly biological weapon capable of exterminating the humanoid crew of a ship or the population of a entire planet. And the film also bids a sad farewell to a beloved character - who choses to sacrifice themselves instead of watching their captain, their crew, their friends perish. The film also stars Jonathan Frakes, Michael Dorn, Levar Burton, Brent Spiner, Gates McFadden, Marina Sirtis, and Ron Perlman. And the soundtrack of the film was composed by the late great Jerry Goldsmith.
