It's a toss up between the corvette chase, the bloated hands nonsense or the Hoth creature on the planet that looks like Hoth.

*sigh* The Corvette chase. Even as a newcomer to Trek at the time I hated that scene. Hated it I tell you!

It just didn't work at all IMO. The 'retro' car and music took me completely out of the film, and the Robo-Cop looked totally cheesy.

And kiddie-Kirk was an unbearable brat that I just wanted to clip round the ears.

The Vulcan mind meld "flashback". It was too vague. Where did this supernova come from? Why must Spock and only Spock stop it? And yet more questions.
I just have alot of questions surrounding the supernova event that kicked off everything.

(And yes, I read the Countdown comic which TRIES to fill in these answers, but they were missing from the film itself. Missing from canon.)

Yeah, you can't just take out the baller-ness of Captain Kirk by making him an awkward little kid.  :angry:

Agreed. It simply comes down to this.

Either you believe that Kirk, could go from a top level graduate who as the TOS stated was a staunch stiff at the academy to a slobbering, Uhura groping drunk, because of the loss of his father or you can't.

For me, that premise is hard to buy. No one else in his life was able to guide him besides his dad?

Kirk was a thinker first, and fighter second.

I hate to defend the movie (I really do not like it), but this is an alternate reality.

Only the names are the same. The characters are completely different.

NO $#!+!! REALLY, Storma? Based on your 100 posts-a-day on the same exact topic...I NEVER would have guessed where you stand on this movie.

Thanks for clarifying for everyone.

Trust me, I get it. Kirk has the same soul, just living through a different set of circumstances.

The question is do you believe THESE circumstances, can alter a person that much. I will not answer that, just put it out there.

Actually that was quite good.

It's the "Parking Brake" scene, simply because 250 years in the future they wont even know what a parking break is since the terminology would changed drastically in 250 years. Let's not forget the fact it just didn't feel right.

I kinda have to agree here.  The script/screen play was fine for the most part but I think they jumbled up a couple of places including the distress call (as in where was the turbulant activity coming from before the Narada was even drilling) and the mind meld.  Though, it isn't the mindmeld itself I had a problem with, just what was explained in it.

Personally, I would have gone with a Gamma Ray burst taking out Romulus.  Much more plausible and, as someone pointed out, would have been a much cooler SFX.
