Not too long ago, at the Destination Star Trek event in London, Star Trek Nemesis earned a great deal of attention. Jeri Ryan revealed the interesting fact that the character of Seven of Nine was initially considered for an extensive role in Nemesis. Denise Crosby spoke about her idea at the time that Sela could also have had a role in the film. Nemesis was a topic of conversation at the special reunion of the Next Generation cast, too. With all that attention on Nemesis, we thought it would be fun to time travel back to December 13, 2002, and look at some of our favorite merchandise available at time of the film’s premiere.
