Star Trek: Nemesis script leaked?

This

claims to have the script for Star
Trek: Nemesis
. If you don’t want to be

(I haven’t read it yet, and I can’t guarantee its
authenticity, but I’m sure anyone faking a script
at this stage would be sure to make it consistent
with every spoiler they can find.)

    After reading…

    Well, it could be legit. I have a few questions/qualms (the dialog doesn’t seem right and the characters are a little off), but the fact that it looks OCRed and does match all the spoilers we’ve gotten to date. The only way to confirm is to just wait until December.

      I’m not very far into it yet, but it rubs me the wrong
      way. “Old chum” doesn’t seem like something Geordi
      would say, and in the early scenes Data seems to be
      written with his emotion chip turned off, which
      strikes me as very unlikely. Still, as you say, we’ll
      have to wait and see. We may know before December,
      though, if the trailers contradict what we see here.
      Or if it stays on that website very long without
      Paramount trying to quash it. (It was announced on
      the IMDB after all.)

    I don’t buy it.
    The following is a not-comprehensive list of things that just rub me the wrong way…

    “Old chum?” Or, for that matter, Worf not knowing that Romulan ale is illegal in the Federation?

    Data asking about the complexity of emotions in the wedding scene… or, for that matter, acting like he has no familiarity with emotions. He got that emotion chip three movies ago.

    “Is that your final answer?” Sheesh. Not only is it anachronistic, but also it’s just plain not-funny.

    “Astrometry.” I thought it was “Astrometrics.” I also thought that Voyager was the only ship that had one, thanks to Seven’s Borg upgrades. (Then again, the script doesn’t seem to have any dates listed, so it’s hard to be sure just how far ahead of the “Voyager” finale this movie is set.)

    “Move your ass!” “Savage them!” That just doesn’t sound like Picard.

    Assuming this is the Enterprise-E, it doesn’t have 29 decks.

    Overall, there’s just a bit more comedy than seems appropriate (unless they’re trying to recreate “The Voyage Home,” in which case they failed miserably).

    I’d believe this to be an early draft, but not the final shooting script.

      Actually, there were a couple of scenes in Generations that were set in an Astrometrics lab on the Enterprise-D. It was where they figured out that blowing up a star would change the course of the Nexus.

        That was Stellar Cartogrophy.

          Good eyes (or ears). That was a brand new set for the Enterprise, sadly it was the last we saw of it. I could easily see more galactic-range starships actually using these.

    Looks like an early draft
    According to AICN\’s Moriarty in this article, this is, in fact, an early draft of the script. Let\’s hope the points we were sticking on have been cleared up. This this reads like a script written by someone with a passing interest in the show who didn\’t watch the other movies.

    Wesley?
    We know there are certain cameos, including that of Wil Wheaton. So, before I invested time in reading the whole thing, I did a quick search for the word “wesley”. No results. Tells me what I need to know.

      Wesley Crusher\’s appearance was an afterthought that happened when Wil Wheaton heard some spoilers and contacted the producers, saying that his character would fit into a certain scene. I think this is a legitimate draft that predates that phone call. Let\’s hope his insertion wasn\’t the only modification.

    I’ve only glanced at the script — I don’t want to spoil too much of the movie for myself — but it looks dismal. I can’t believe that this is what passes for Trek material these days.

    I really hope this is either a fake, or a very, very early draft, destined to be almost wholly thrown out.

    Where is Nicholas Meyer when you need him? That’s what I want to know!

      Well, I have just spend a the last hour and a half with a complete read through.

      • I think it\’s real.
      • I quite enjoyed it, and I think it will make a reasonable movie that won\’t be considered a failure. Maybe not the greatest ST movie, but I think I’ll like this better than the last two.
      • They do spend time with a bit of character development, humor, include all major castmembers, space wars and hand to hand typical of what they like to shell out in every movie. It also has a pretty good flow to it, something a lot of spoofers suck at. Though some of the ‘beats’ seem a little over the top.
      • The \’spoilers\’ are covered or I think they could be — though I\’m not sure about Guinan. Wesley could either be in the opening party scenes or the closing one being the ensign who installs the new seats. I buy the just a draft idea.
      • I was surpised they kill Data, though it does suggest the his copy will evolve if they want to drag that up for the next movie.

      • My understanding is that Brent Spiner wanted Data to be killed off. He was having issues with playing an ageless character as he got older.

      • Well, I don\’t know about anyone else, but I really wish you had put up some sort of indication that you were gonna be spoilering a major, major plot point… I would much prefer not to have known this.

          Hear hear! As a huge STNG and Data fan, thanks alot for the spoiler! (insert sarcastic tone) I know Brent said this is probably the last time he’ll play Data due to aging, but I really didn’t need to know they were going to kill him off. Oh and clone him, thanks for that too. (walks off sobbing into a corner)

          Sorry. Seriously. I think I just got a little carried away when writing the review…

    Check your caches, people!
    The page in question now returns a \”404 File Not Found\” page. I\’ll not speculate on what that means — that\’s your job, folks — but anyone who still has a copy of that page around is encouraged to mail me a copy, so I can add it to our files section.

    • Dave says:

      Re: Check your caches, people!
      You may now knock it off — and thanks to the nine of you who sent that script to me.

        Oh Yeah, the file’s up in the downloads section. It’s a direct copy, right down to the ad code, so if it chokes on some imaginary banner ad (for me, it’s trying to look for the fictitious host “ads.bureau42.com”) I apologize.

      It probably means that it ate too much bandwidth and the server owner killed it. I wonder if Paramount even cares enough to comment on this…
