i still think part of this could go back to the narada had just come from the singularity as i noted earlier.
they might not have had warp drive for instance.
or had been up to full power.
a ship that massive might not be that nimble on partially powered thrusters.
plus wasnt nero's crew like him miners.
their anger and thrist for revenge isnt the greatest combination for making quick military decisions.
nero and his crew represent passion unbridled and made form through revenge.
they lack not just logic but disciplined thinking.
