Robau staging his death for no particular reason.

That and the brewery. Specifically that room where Kirk found Uhura,with the beer taps coming out of the walls. I guess Starfleet likes to keep the women folk liquored up.

I think the Kobayashi Maru wins for me too. But a close second is the Uhura-unwittingly-strips-to-her-very-21st-century-underwear-in-front-of-Kirk scene. It wasn't classic Trek sexy, it was like cringemaking fourteen-year old boy fanservice.

Sulu's sword fight was a bit cringe-inducing too, but I forgive it because Cho's so darn cute.

I truly loathed the Kobayashi Maru scene - not the way he won, but the twerp-like way he acted as he was winning. Almost everybody else seems to have loved it, and I don't mean any disrespect to them (or to Chris Pine) when I say how much I hate it, but I thought it made Kirk look like an arrogant and immature jerk, not at all like somebody who ought to be made captain anytime soon.

I liked the movie a lot, but that scene just made me want to smack that apple out of his hands (yes, yes, I know the apple was one of those nods to canon - I don't care) and say, "Behave yourself! You want to be a Starfleet officer, you should stop acting like a smart-alecky teenager."
I have to agree with you on this choice.

That THING that follows Scotty round. Why do we need a Jar Jar Binks in Star Trek?

Why do you see him as a Jar Jar Binks type? I didn't get that impression at all.

Yep. We don't need no Star Wars muppets mucking up our Star Trek!

I wasn't too happy about the portrayal of Nero and Romulans in general since I was expecting this move to finally move them beyond stock-villain status. But it didn't make me cringe, exactly.

He was obviously a character that belonged in the Star Wars universe. To me, he was more Ewok, but that's not much better than Jar-Jar.

And really, he looks more like an Ewok. Or possibly the offspring of an Ewok who mated with a cabbage.

Spock stranding Kirk. Just wrong. They have brigs-that would have done nicely. Or even beaming him down to a holding facility on the planet would have made more sense.

Now, I've got that image running around inside my head.
