Distracting Plot Holes
on May 30, 2003
As I watched the movie I couldn't help but obsess on all the unexplained questions. This movie has some of the laziest scripting I've ever seen.
The Enterprise crew seems baffled as to how a human could end up in charge of the Romulan empire. Guess what. So was I and it's never really explained. Are we to just assume the Picard's genes are so superior that if placed on Romulus he would naturally take over the whole planet.
Why would the Romulan's help Shinzon with his coup, urge him to follow through with his bizaare plan and then turn on him the moment he starts putting his plan in motion?
Shinzon spent his childhood being tortured by the Romulan's so naturally he holds a deep hatred for... EARTH????
What do the Romulan's hope to gain by destroying the Earth?
Who built the Scimitar? Was it the Romulans or the Remians and how did they suddenly make this technological leap to build the most powerful starship ever? Why would the Romulan's give Shinzon charge of this ship since he seems to have no experience as a starship commander.
Who designed the Phazon generator to sit on the Scimitar's bridge? Doesn't that seem like an accident just waiting to happen.
How in the world did the Remian's think they were going to capture the Enterprise by beaming a half dozen soldiers aboard?
Why would the Romulan's build such a massive space cruiser and then fill it with no defense forces? Picard had little difficulty storming the ship SINGLE HANDEDLY.
Why did the Romulan's attack their OWN SHIP knowing it's power after giving it to Shinzon? Naturally they got their butts handed to them but it makes no sense.
If the Romulans can just start beeming people off the Enterprise at will why not just keep doing it until you capture the whole crew?
I give the movie a three because I have a soft heart. The Final Frontier would have received a one.
