10. Star Trek (2009) - bad science/Vulcan destruction/Kirk's leapfrog promotion
12. STID - characterization/plot/bad science/Khan?!?
So you're saying the other ten Star Trek films have good science?
Not necessarily, there are flaws in each film - especially TFF, but the most recent seem particularly egregious. I had hoped our progress in scientific understanding would be reflected in the newer movies. One example: it's perfectly logical to expect that in the future any massive vessels would be constructed in space. A movie made in the 70's respected its audience enough to incorporate this concept. So I was absolutely flabbergasted that a 21st-century Trek movie would show the Enterprise being constructed amidst the cornfields of Iowa! Ugh!!!
