Actually, Pike must have given Nero the way through Earth's defences. That was why there was no response. Wasn't as though he had a choice.
I don't have a problem with people not liking the film. As mentioned above, Jim Steele
says he doesn't like it and explains why, and that's cool.
It's the others (I name no names) who don't like it and say, either directly or by implication, "and anyone that does is an idiot/traitor/noob (in a perjorative way)/ADHD sufferer". That's what gets my back up, though I try to temper my responses. Because it could so easy go the other way, and that's really
stupid, flaming back and forth.
So if you don't like it, that's fine. Just don't think those who do are idiots. Okay?
