Yes, and are you going to bust Trek's nuts over every single one of them over the last ~50 years?
Can you imagine what a clusterfuck this board would be if every scientific inaccuracy throughout Trek was treated with as much venom as Into Darkness?
Not enough Excedrin in the world for that.
Put it always amuses me the amount of bullshit science and "speculative fiction" ST fans will buy into, and only to flip out over equally as bad speculative bullshit fiction when they don't like an episode or movie.
Then again, it isn't just ST fans, sci-fi and fantasy fans in general are fickle creatures.
