How did they ever think they were at Ceti Alpha VI if the fifth planet blew up leaving the system without six worlds??
Because the fifth planet didn't blow up. That would have killed Khan and his followers. The sixth planet blew up and shifted the orbit of the fifth, laying everything on it to waste. Kirk and the rest of Starfleet had no idea what happened because no one bothered to check up on the colony until Reliant
visited the system.
Sorry, I got a little mixed up. But the point was - how did Reliant ever set course for Ceti Alpha VI when the system now only has five planets?
