We are ditched! You are aware that the ion pod advocates will now tell us that once the pod has been jettisoned there's a blinking light that visually signals repair personnel that a new ion pod needs to be installed.

And the rationalization that we see this blinking light in every shot of he original footage with the post-Pike Enterprise will be that they lost another ion pod but hadn't yet the time to replace it...
