It was brilliant. Personally I wasn't keen on the reboot idea, but they did it brilliantly. Maybe Star Trek will be cool now. :P

One thing I didn't like though, the skirts were longer. :(

OMG I JUST CAME BACK FROM WATCHING IT!

It was awesome! But you know, all the ... you knows, on the you know, when did they equip those? How, given the... storyline?

And they destroyed Earth yet they were standing on it!!! ARG! *cough* That's not a spoiler.

Annother non-spoiler, the stuff souldn't have been in a sphere.

I still think it's awesome! :D :D :D :D :D

Yah, uh... no more weed for you. :P But this does prove that Star Trek is so good that you'll even like it stoned...

Maybe I was stoned then, because I don't remember some of that stuff, besides the sphere...

Ah, much better now. :P

The Mining vessel equipped with weapons was a little odd, too. I can see it having some light weaponry for defense, and the use of re-purposed mining equipment once the went back in time (Like the drill), and it would make sense that, a hundred years in the future, these weapons would be significantly stronger, but missiles/torpedoes? Not what you'd expect, but I kinda let it slide.

The whole matter of the supernova was, if you ask me, the biggest blunder of the movie. A supernova that would threaten the galaxy? Spock, are you high? Supernovas have been known to not even totally destroy planets in close vicinity, barely bother ones a few lightyears away. Yet is splits a planet in half, and apparently is a threat to 'all life as we know it.' And, as you said, they would have known about an event like that for beyond centuries. I mean, we already know about when the sun should burn out, and how, and it's billions of years off, but in Star Trek, it's like, "By the way...". Next, a black hole would do shit to a supernova. In fact, they usually already have a black hole inside them. The violently exploding outside would still go off.

Also, to destroy a planet with a black hole, they wouldn't need to drill. They could just detonate the damn thing in the atmosphere and be on their way. If they wanted to use the drill, they could have just drilled to the core of the planet, and that would have made it's own fair amount of hell.

The black hole actually works in the sense your saying. If you noticed, they jumped away from Earth, out of the system, presumably, before the whole black-hole stunt. After that, it wouldn't last long, considering that the only matter it had to consume would be the comparatively puny mining vessel, which is nothing compared to the mass it's used to having to survive (Aka, stars and planets). However, the problem lies in that it didn't have anything start on-it was conceived in flat out space. Next, Nero would have been crushed, flattened, and thrown into a billion tiny particles very fast, not in the drawn out movie fashion. In fact, even his transmission wouldn't have escaped. For that matter, the Enterprise probably should have been crushed once the black hole had been created, too.

On a similar note, detonating the warp drive would have done nothing to move the Enterprise, as almost all the energy had been transferred to light and such, and the few remaining fast moving particles would have probably just ripped through the Enterprise instead of moving it, but they played it out like they were in the atmosphere. Oh well. Still looked cool.

And where did you hear about the red-matter repealing? It's pretty hard to have a magic goop that makes a black hole via condensing that's matter-shy.

I didn't notice the moon one, but now that you mention it, that's a big oops on there part. Nice find. :P

Anyhow, beside those, and a few other fairly blatant errors that I don't feel like writing about, it was pretty damn cool.
