Re: STID's plot holes unrivaled?

TWOK is filled with plot holes and character stupidity. A sampling would include, but not be limited to:
-Ceti Alpha 5 or 6? And no, a planet does NOT take the orbit of another destroyed planet.
-Kirk, the 'seasoned' captain, failed to raise shields - contra regulations - despite having ample warning as to the Reliant's suspicious behaviour. Who cares about regulations when you have a gigantic ego that just got a few of your crew killed, yes?
-the eel leaving Chekov's head. Because it was bored due to a lack of brain to consume?
-Khan, the so-called 'super-man' is not smart enough to realise space has 3 spatial dimensions, as opposed to 2. I've seen shows with monkeys who realised this just fine.

By comparison with these, STID is the peak of logical consistency.
Unrivaled plot holes? Not even close.
