Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood.

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]
