Head of the Star Trek franchise Rick Berman has spoken about the uncertainty facing future Trek films.

"There's a theory that there was too much time [between 'Insurrection' and 'Nemesis']," Berman told SCI FI Wire, addressing the poor box office performance of 'Nemesis'. "There's another theory that there wasn't too much time. I, along with the people at Paramount, need a few months of perspective and thinking about it to then decide what's the best thing to do next."

Despite the poor takings, Berman is adamant that it wasn't a problem with the quality of the film. "I'm convinced that we made a very good movie, and I'm also convinced that the movie was promoted properly.

"I thought the trailers and the television spots were all excellent. It's easy to blame that sort of thing, but I don't think we can in this situation. I think that the competition of other films may have played some part in it, but I can't be certain of that, either. It's very, very hard to tell."
