Well, one thing about writing credits, the credit doesn't always go the people who do the most work on it. It wouldn't surprise me if it was his idea for the 1st one though, that's one of my most hated lines in that movie. Breaking the 4th wall has it's place in comedies sometimes, but that line was just shameless and was only missing a wink at the camera after it was said.
Also, Braga was really into the concept of the Borg Queen which was the single worst thing to come out of First Contact. He managed to turn a terrifying hive mind race from TNG into a group of henchmen following a twirling mustache villain complete with one liner quips as they were portrayed in Voyager.
The real problem is Braga needs to have heavy moderating influences on him. He can be a decent writer from time to time, but he needs to be kept in check. He absolutely cannot be a showrunner.
