And to get back on topic, I want to quote Chekov's announcement:
May I have your attention please. At 2200 hours telemetry detected an anomaly in the Neutral Zone, what appeared to be a lightning storm in space. Soon after, Starfleet received a distress signal from the Vulcan High Command that their planet was experiencing seismic activity. Our mission is to assess the condition of Vulcan, and assist in evacuations if necessary. We should be arriving at Vulcan in within 3 minutes. Thank you for your time.
Apparently, they linked the lightning storm in space in the Neutral Zone somehow to the seismic activity on Vulcan (otherwise, why do you mention it, Chekov?). But they didn't link the destruction of 47 Klingon ships by one Romulan ship in the Neutral Zone to the Lightning Storm or to the activity on Vulcan? LOL, yeah right.
