The point of the future setting and its technology is either to show how we’ve lost touch with our humanity or to show how nothing about technology can change basic human nature. Based loosely on the book by Stanislaw Lem and the Russian film directed by Andrei Tarkovsky in 1972, “Solaris” is a collaboration between Academy Award winners Steven Soderbergh and James Cameron. It tells the tale of Chris Kelvin (George Clooney), who is asked to go to a space station orbiting the planet Solaris, where a friend of his (Ulrich Tukur) informs him that strange occurrences have the crew spooked.

Those worlds took shape in his mind, but they were very real all the same. At least, they were real in the world that was then known. The author used the real world as a steppingstone and branched out into unknown realms such as the center of the earth, the moon, and beneath the vast oceans, based on what current science knew of those areas. One of Verne’s most compelling characters was Captain Nemo. The mysterious and moody captain first appeared in Verne’s novel “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” in 1870.

"Nemesis" performed spectacularly badly at the box office in comparison to its nine predecessors, and unfortunately sends the "Star Trek: The Next Generation" cast out on a whimper rather than the bang they no doubt intended with this action-packed final installment of the popular SF series of films.
