Re: STID's plot holes unrivaled?

Look, I loved STXI even with it's flaws, but we're talking about a movie whose plot literally wouldn't happen if a) Admiral Marcus and Section 31 were competent enough to put a bomb in Khan's body or b) Khan simply beamed himself on to the Vengeance's bridge, killed everyone there, vented the ship's atmosphere, and taken it to Earth to get his vengeance.

These are horrifically obvious options that are being missed, not subtle points that require much analysis and thought to find.
Khan could have completely pulverized every bit of the Enterprise except for the bridge before making contact with Kirk during the first Reliant attack, but didn't.

Khan could have beamed up Kirk along with Genesis, killed him and been on his merry way, with his WMD in hand.

These are horrifically obvious options that are being missed, not subtle points that require much analysis and thought to find.
