Re: Which Star Trek movie has got the most plot holes? And the least?
I rather like that the TWOK novelization mentions something of this nature, and also states that CA6 was a moon of CA5, rather than a distinct planet in its own right.
This explanation keeps Terrell, Chekov and the Reliant
crew from looking like complete idiots.
