I'll take advantage of this thread to bring up a couple of things I hadn't thought of before (on second thought), and I don't remember being posted here that occurred to me when I recently re-watched STID.
1. Just an observation. The stuff floating in the air like confetti in the scene where Khan attacks Starfleet HQ and in the scene on Kronos. Nice touch. Added visual texture to the scenes. Real weather.
2. What happened to the two "undercover" redshirts with Kirk, Spock, and Uhura on Kronos? Were they killed in the fire fight? Have I still missed the moment where they're shot or stabbed by a Klingon? If they died, this is historically important for the new universe, because it would mark Kirk's first two redshirt deaths.
