Re: I hope for more traditional space battles
I have uh, mixed feelings on JJ Abrams Trek to say the fucking least but it never bothered me that Kirk blows up Nero. Kirk is the gung-ho captain and was never much of a goodie-goodie. Also, having Nero Prime around would be dangerous to the timeline.
The timeline? How would he be dangerous to "the timeline"? He doesn't really have time travel powers.
