Loved the film but a few things that irked me (ja spoilers)

1. Kirk gets winded after throwing a few punches at Khan
-James t Kirk does NOT get winded throwing a few punches

2. Bones standing next to Spock during Nimoy scene and no quip?
- How bout heaven help me there are two of you, nimoy raises brow and smirks. Would have made me cry

3. In the first film the warp cores were in the big aluminum beer silo tanks. This film we got one main warp core
- beer silos still very much there, why not activate one of those warp cores if cores removed why are the beer silos still there?

4. Khan announces my name is... Khan
- how bout saying my name is Khan Noonian Sing and Spock and or Kirk recognizing and saying something like one of earths most brutal tyrants

5. Impulse deck refit sorry hate it
- secondary hull needs more belly and pushed back along connecting dorsal, main thing that needed tweaking impulse deck was awesome

6. Torpedoes
- how bout Marcus wanted them fired at qonos to have them infiltrate the Klingon home world still hokey but would have made more sense

Loved just about everything else. Saw it twice and may go once more

Kirk was injured after almost being knocked unconscious by a Klingon. Spock and Uhura drag him to safety because he can't stand up on his own. He was probably dizzy and in a lot of pain but his rage overtook him.

Yeah, Kirk had just survived a fight with Klingons and was operating on adrenalin.

Don't matter
Shatner would have had the juice to still perform four flawless shoulder rolls and at least five drop kicks

Actually it'd be a guy who looks nothing like Shatner dressed as Shatner

Whew. Good to hear you liked it. 'Cos I noticed the other day on the poll that there's another Lord Garth here, and he rated the movie an "F":

Like this?





Pretty apt image, and it's not Montalban either.

You know what, I wasn't really irked by anything to be fair.

I try not to over analyse things that will ruin my enjoyment.


However...

In the back of every trek fan, there is a disgruntled voice banging away about silly things. Can't help it. It comes pre installed in all of us.

Which is one of the things I hated about TOS.

Re: Loved the film but a few things that irked me (ja spoilers)

And ANOTHER THING:!!!Z!!!!@11

In Star Trek 6 Uhura didn't know Klingon, but here she's rusty but fluent.. stupid writers.Why would a linguist and communications specialist alluva sudden know the language of the Federation's primary advesary?

Woman just needs to open and close the hailing frequencies


/sarcastic nerd rage.

I was upset that she didn't make even ONE sandwich for those hardworking men. They must have been starving.
