Don't forget Kirk's obvious glee at being able to blow Nero's shit to hell.

It's for the ADD generation of course. We're too stupid to understand anything else.

I guess I like having heroes who have human emotions. I'm sure Kirk and Spock got a bit of satisfaction accelerating Nero's trip to the next life. I'm sure Picard got a bit of satisfaction snapping the neck of the remnants of the Borg Queen.

Neither action was likely necessary but very, very human.

I'm pretty sure there is a Bwahahahahaha Kirk and Spock bit in the deleted scenes. They also rub their hands together and cackle.

Too bad it didn't make it into the film, some people's heads would've exploded.

I've got to say, not giving a shit about the morality of Kirk blowing up the Narada.

People finding the Enterprise blowing up the bad guys and saving the day to be a bad aspect of the movie are strange and weird.

Fuck Nero. I'm glad Kirk blew him into tiny particles of Romulan ash.

They had already saved the day and didn't need to blow the bad up. He was done anyway and seemed like saving Nero would have pissed him off more.

You don't save the day until the bad guy is in cuffs or dead.
