Re: What I Don't Like About the USS Kelvin
I suppose that depends. I don't have much of a problem with the image itself, but how does myspace.roflposter.com feel about people hotlinking directly to their images?

Just as an idea, something to toss back and forth: we know George Kirk saved 800 lives. Is it possible that the Kelvin was transporting people at the time she encountered the Narada?
It's own standard crew might be a lot less than that. And if the Kelvin were carrying passengers, perhaps she had a greater than usual number of shuttles too? Perhaps larger ones with increased cargo capacity.
A very good possibility. I'm also rather fond of the idea that there were one or two less armed ships following a bit behind the Kelvin
off screen, and that their complement, combined with the Kelvin
's, was 800. The Kelvin
's sacrifice would be the only thing that allowed them to escape.
This reminds me of an old rumor(?) which surfaced at AICN months ago about some supposed footage which showed a convoy of some sort. Not sure whether that was ever verified, debunked or simply went away on its own.
