Re: What happened to the rest of Vengeance's Section 31 crew?

Part of Khan's work with Section 31 was to come up with technology that protected the warp core.

As for the rest of Vengeance' crew, two words:

TOS style warp cores didn't go pop every time someone sneezed at them No rolling on a dropping blast door for Scotty; just fix the damn engine and move on with your day.
There was a definite lack of quality in the 24th century warp cores. Damn things were threatening to blow up all the time.
TOS engines were more like muscle cars: Something breaks, you grab a toolkit, pop the hood, fix it while downing a beer.

TNG engines: Is like more modern cars. Something breaks, you might be able to fix it, more likely you just going to fuck something up that's more expensive to fix and the engine will blow on you going down the road.

What happened to the rest of Vengeance's Section 31 crew?

They fell into that portal called 'not needed for the plot'.

Isn't this the reason that they added the "Are you starfleet or private security" line? So that we wouldn't be worrying about them when they explode.

I thought this was to further emphasize the sneakiness of Marcus' plan. That he couldn't bring on star fleet regulars... he needed paid muscle that didn't need to think, just obey.

who's to say there was any one else aboard besides those that we saw on film. the ship was designed so that if need be just one person could fly it. those that engaged in hand to hand combat with khan and friends were knocked out. obviously we all saw those aboard the bridge get stunned.

Under the circumstances I think it's a minor miracle the warp core apparently didn't breach.

Then again, maybe Khan ejected it beforehand because he wasn't feeling completely suicidal.
Warp cores don't breach in this universe unless you really want them to. Even with the torpedoes: Scotty wasn't worried about them causing a warp core breach so much as the torpedoes affecting the containment field and allowing the reactor to irradiate the entire crew.

In TOS, it seemed that the danger was always the hull breaking apart at high speed or the nacelles blowing off the pylons, or vague mentions of "blowing up" in general.

So their core could take a fair beating apparently, so it's just the 24th century lava lamps that were so fragile. I'm surprised it was safe to sneeze near the things.

A lost scene from TNG: Ensign Crusher Sneezes as he walks past engineering; containment alarm sounds; computer starts countdown to warp core breech; blast door begins to drop; Geordi rolls under at the last second.

Geordi: Damn it, that's the third time today.

Perhaps they should have installed a sneeze guard.

Re: What happened to the rest of Vengeance's Section 31 crew?

All killed I imagine. I feel like Khan's survival was a bit incredulous, particularly given the instantaneous detonation of 75 torpedoes INSIDE the ship and then crashing on Earth. I would've preferred to have had him beam out of ship at the last second or hit an escape pod. Having him just hop off the ship afterwards just seemed a bit hokey but I gave the film some leeway because Khan is an augment after all. OTOH of course, most of the TNG crew were able to survive the crash of the NCC-1701-D, so...............

I love the scene where he hops off the ship. I always wonder if that expression on Khan's face is a fear of heights.
