BTW: Isn't it great that the bridge has that big ass window instead of a view-screen
What's the worst that can happen? It's not like it can... dunno... crack or something. Just a completely random example of the top of my head

Actually, I find it great that I was right about the 'window-theory'

Not Nero's snowballs, but I think the gravitational pull might be enough to crack a wee bit the **transparent aluminum**...

If you had seen the movie, you'd know that what you just said is total BS.
Of course it is (and I'm sure he's well aware that it's little more than his own fanfic, having little or nothing to do with the story told in the movie) but, for some odd reason, people keep quoting and responding to his comments as if they're in some way pertinent to the topic of discussion (that being the movie April keeps saying he hasn't seen yet.) Stop taking the bait, and let's get on with talking about the movie which is being shown, eh?

Pike explicitly told them not to scratch the paint and everything!

That scene looked great dramatically, but it didn't make all that much sense. Still, nothing says "we're in trouble" now quite like it.

Okay.
Robau's death... well, let's just say: bad-ass, my ass
J/K.
That was one incredible beginning.

Random thought:

At least the Enterprise wasn't "the only ship in the quadrant" in this movie.

Just a holographic pic of the Romulan lady and no gruesome death that I can recall.
