Re: Orci, Kurtzman and Lindelof should not Return.
Whose to say Scotty didn't know about the Vengeance program prior to its subversion by Marcus? Seeing something on paper and up-close and in person are two distinct things. Plus, since the Vengeance wasn't yet in service, its schematics may require security clearances that our crew simply don't have.
So much of this stuff is common sense I'm not sure why anyone would need it spelled out in the movie itself?
And we're forgetting: Carol knew the basics of what Marcus was developing, that he had been designing a super ship.
