  • Shields seemed to be sub-par. In TOS, they were tough SOB’s that were hard to knock out. Here, seems like even a screw or nut could take them down easily.
To be fair, they are fighting a ship from 150 years in the future. I'd like to see a ship from 1858 take on a fully equipped, modern-day aircraft carrier. And not get its every defensive measure blown through like a lightsaber through butter. In the Kelvin scenes, the crewmembers are freaked out and comment that it's as if their shields aren't even there.
