That's one of the scenes I hated in the film. Logan, Berman and Baird completely whitewashed that whole galactic milestone. The Enterprise went to Romulus! That's more important for the Federation's foreign relations than what happened in TUC (there the Enterprise just met the Chancellor's ship, it didn't actually go to Qo'noS). Such a let-down.
In fairness, how else could it have been handled? Long drawn out scenes of politicians back slapping each other whilst discussing the historical significance and political ramifications?
Isn't the the kind of thing that essentially 'killed' Star Trek and led to whizz-bang-million-mile-an-hour-ADD-explosion-fest of Trek XI?
As someone with a Trek XI avatar, you can't have your cake and eat it.
That's the stupidest argument I've ever read anywhere. You're dismissing my opinions of one film because I have an avatar from a completely different film that you don't like? What does that have to do with anything?
And FYI, despite the so-called "whizz-bang-million-mile-an-hour-ADD-explosion-fest" of XI, Karl Urban still delivered an exceptional performance that honoured both McCoy and DeForest Kelley. Thus my avatar.
