But spock prime does! He has a time ship!

He can go back in time right before nero's planet was destroyed, fix the problem and thus never necessitate the rest of the events of the film!

Oh right, I keep forgetting that JJ and company like to insult peoples intelligence with useless plot devices.
No, he doesn't. He has a ship that is really fast and carries Red Matter.
It makes no sense at all that they can travel back and forth in time using all kinds of techniques (slingshot effect for example) but spock prime would not take this option to effect the time line in nero and spock primes future, thus arbitrarily creating a series of useless plot devices!

How the hell can red matter cause planets to explode at the same time as creating a black hole that is really a time portal? Makes no sense at all. There is zero attempt at explanation of this.
Then this is true of every single episode and movie of Trek: solve the problem by time travel. Why didn't Picard use time travel to stop Shinzon? Why didn't Kirk use time travel to stop Khan?

The Red matter creates black holes not explosions. Black holes ( more specifically wormholes) have been theorized as being able to create "time portals" and gateways to other Universes. Its also a common SF trope.
