Select Historical Data — This is kind of all over the place focusing on props, actors and everything in between. The first half of season is good but still far from perfect. I think the writing has reached a remarkably high standard in the third season, one that the rest of the series has to measure up to.

Last in Archives is Props, a collection of photographs depicting some of the props seen throughout Star Trek: Nemesis. Beating out even First Contact for sheer action, Nemesis delivers a consistently strong flow of excitement that comes just often enough to reinforce the slower, more dramatic elements of the film, and it is wonderfully juxtaposed with the culmination of the Picard-Shinzon drama in the final act.

However, I don't think it was a good idea to introduce new family members of the crew in several episodes, as if the writers were working up a list of relatives to be shown. The Chase succeeds were so many episodes during season 1 and 2 failed. Main Title 480p, 3:32 takes a close look at the title sequence and special effect that opens the film.
