Re: STID's plot holes unrivaled?
Interesting note about Enterprise falling to earth:
Right before, Spock warns the crew to brace for a shock wave from the exploding torpedoes he beamed over to Vengeance.
Could it be, perhaps, it was that shock wave that pushed Enterprise into earth's gravity well causing her into free fall?
Also, did Vengeance crash, or did Khan directly aim Vengeance into earth's atmosphere? It wasn't careening out of control when we see it fly past Enterprise on it's way toward SF. It was taking a straight shot down.
Now that I've seen it, and have also had time to mellow, to really think about it, I now find it absolutely, unbearably repulsive in every way except for some of the acting. - about The Wrath of Khan. Interstat, Issue 62: 1982
