And then the red matter makes a black hole and they have to go to full wartime emergency power to outrun it and Scotty says the line and they jettison the Warp Cores or whatevs and everything explodes? God what a great movie that was.
I hate that part...
1. Why did Kirk stick around to blow up the Narada after they refused help? They were in a a FRIGGIN BLACK HOLE! The ship was being torn apart from the inside out, they were screwed either way, why waste the time and risk the Enterprise getting pulled in too?
2. Detonating the warp core is the absolute STUPIDEST idea ever in that situation. It would be like you car was being dragged backward no matter how hard you hit the accelerator, so the best solution you can come up with is THROWING OUT THE ENGINE.
3. I hate that stupid red matter, it's lazy writing when your plot device is literally just a giant red ball of goo that reacts to PLOT.
Let me be clear, I actually rather like the '09 movie. Does it beat First Contact and Wrath of Khan? No, but compared to the others it's still a solid "average", and even a bad Star Trek movie is better than a general bad movie. There's just a few parts of it that really piss me off and they just so happen to be the parts other people seem to like, for reasons I can't comprehend.
