Re: Spoilers - Distance to Qo'Nos (Kronos), a math question

Interestingly, for me that is, is that Gamma Hydra is later shown in proximity to the Romulan Neutral Zone. Now, working in three dimensional space, the Neutral Zone for the Klingons could be above or below that for the Romulans.

Re: Spoilers - Distance to Qo'Nos (Kronos), a math question

It's like starships are weapons of mass destruction. You could reach the Klingon homeworld in less than 12 hours. We know that Starfleet sends its main fleet out of communication range and relies on automated defences. We know that Starfleet doesn't challenge Federation ships in its territory, even at top secret bases. Earth is doomedwhen all the Klingons need to do is commandeer a starships and do enough damage to the defences before Starfleet command uses the prefix code to shut you down, which takes ages apparently...

Unless they beam a Genesis Device straight to Qo'onos.

Re: Spoilers - Distance to Qo'Nos (Kronos), a math question

Distances in both of these films doesn't really make sense. But then again finding a way to travel at light speeds is basically impossible anyway. So traveling at faster than light and getting from earth to Q'onoS in a few minutes and back, it's not that bad compared to other things.

Impossible for our civilization, at its current level of technological development - yes.
Impossible for what is out there - maybe.

Why does everyone who talks about "minutes to reach Kronos" seem to be totally unaware of what film editing is?

This has been an issue before in Trek. Remember when the Enterprise E got from the Romulan Neutral Zone back to Earth very fast in First Contact?
We don't know how long the trip took. Of course, the Romulan Neutral Zone is pretty close to Earth since the war occured early during space exploration. Maybe Starfleet parked the Enterprise close by just in case.

Even if it's hours, that's still not much time considering in the past it's taken days to reach both. But again I see this stuff as minor because traveling through space at faster than light speeds is itself impossible and if you somehow could do so you would be traveling through time.
