Nemesis is going to follow the normal Star Trek movie mold by having an important sub-plot involving Spock/Data. Of course, since Brent Spiner helped write the story, it's not surprising that Data is getting a major storyline here. What is surprising is that it's a play upon the popular Data/Lore arc from the television series. Data will again discover a brother he didn't know he had. The difference this time is that his new sibling, B9, is the Forrest Gump of androids. He's gentle and sweet by nature (B9 is going to run away with the title of Corniest Character Name of 2002) but dumb as a stick, so Data feels compelled to nurture his less-fortunate brother.
