The problem is with how the scene was written and how it played out. It's that simple. I don't know if you are not getting my point or if you are just choosing not to, but it is a valid point nonetheless.
No. They get your point. They're trying to show how it has zero merit.
It does not have "zero merit." And "trying" would be the operative word.

Pretty much this.

It was obvious that Khan was playing possum on the bridge of the Vengeance as he pops his eye open almost immediately after Scott stuns him.

But taking that into account would nullify the point about Uhura needing help and we can't have that. Can we?
Well, she did need help. You saw the film. That's how the scene played out.
