I haven't read the comics yet, but am I right that April's code is a massive plot hole? He installed it on the old Enterprise and it magically worked on the new one too? And THAT is the thing Harrison steals, that's important to the film?
Or it's just the report on what happened that makes him mad. We do know he believes Kirks superiors committed some sort of unforgivable crime, it could be that they left the Phaedians to the Klingons. I'd guess Harrisson has some sort of connection to either April or the planet in question.
The access thing can't be that important to the film, since any sane person would make sure the security hole is fixed as soon as possible. Star Fleet is not stupid enough to let it sit there to be used later.
