Re: What's Up with the Warp Core (SPOILERS Into Darkness)
I kind of liked Kirk having to use brute force to realign the warp core injectors. It doesn't make the most sense in terms of design as The Keeper
said, but too much Trek tech consists of people waving a blinking spanner or tricorder over a piece of equipment, pulling a few processing chips out and shouting technobabble. It's fun for a while but can get tiresome.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
