Re: Which Star Trek movie has got the most plot holes? And the least?

TMP has a HUGE plot hole. A near-god-like living machine, which can digitize entire worlds and star systems and created a near-perfect android duplicate of Illia, never thought to wipe the muck off it's name plate?
Why would it ?

Wrath of Khan's entire "two dimensional thinking" thing made zero sense, especially if Khan is the genius he's repeatedly said to be.
Intelligence doesn't give you extra knowledge out of nothing, though.

And why didn't Khan just beam Kirk up for torture and execution when he took the entirely magical Genesis device?
He didn't have coordinates, and couldn't see through the rock. When they beamed down from Regula I, they didn't see where the coordinates were leading.

Which somehow despite being designed to convert the surface of a barren world into a living planet, managed to build an entire world (and star!) out of a nebula?
Genesis Magic aside, the star was already there.

Also, Excelsior spluttering to a halt totally ignoring the laws of physics.
I... never noticed that.
And that's my opinion.
