I just call it as I see it. Why couldn't GIANT SHIP squash the little, slow shuttlecraft? Why couldn't GIANT SHIP destroy the Kelvin before it hit. And if the answer is that it didn't matter if the Kelvin hit or not, why couldn't the GIANT SHIP squash the little, slow shuttlecraft?
The Kelvin shot down those torpedoes.
She was breaking apart as she made her way to the Narada.
It's all very clear in the high resolution version shown on a cinema screen. That low res pirated version though...

And Captain Robau, genius that he is, why didn't he order "WARP AWAY" before "ARM WEAPONS"?
That first salvo crippled the Kelvin's warp drive.

For that matter, why didn't Pike?
Remember? After she de-warped the Enterprise had a near-collision with the debris of another ship, which damaged one of her warp-nacelles. Hence the Enterprise only traveling only at warp 3 and 4 for the rest of the film.

Actually, I think I know the reason why. Federation ships in NuTrek can't actually *move*. This is why, after the six ships crewed by cadets (!) were destroyed, their hulks were all still in one damned place for the Enterprise to dodge around when it got out of hyperspace.
