I saw a clip from TSFS this morning and something occured to me that I thought I'd share, I'm sure others have noticed it too.
Kruge beams down to Genesis and, at gunpoint, tells everyone except Kirk
to move away from the immediate area. Why did the others leave Spock at that point? Kruge was clear, 'everyone except Kirk' was to move away for beam-out. Why go all that way, with all that danger, to leave the person they came for when there was nothing forbidding them moving him?
Arrggghhh!!! Plot devices!!!!!
