    I'll say it. Spock's interpretation of the Prime Directive is dumb. I'm assuming that these people are not member states of the Federation. Why does the Federation have any obligation to stop a natural disaster on this planet and risking crew and ship, besides emphasizing the fact that these people are the "good guys". Spock's there spouting off not revealing themselves at all, even preparing to sacrifice himself for the Prime Directive (after they've already seen Kirk and Bones, by the way), and yet at the same time Spock seems to think Starfleet and the Federation are the Galactic FEMA.

    They better have a good reason why they're protecting this culture, like some politics or something, or I'll be really disappointed. The Enterprise being there doesn't make any sense with the Prime Directive in place, and right now it seems like it's there simply to set up the first action scene in the movie.

    EDIT: And why can't this device be activated remotely anyway?

    So what would be the "personal score" for Kirk?

    I've no idea, really. I mainly posted it because the suggestion that the red vegetation planet of volcanoes and chalky-looking aliens served more as a starting place from which Our Heroes will be called away as the Real Story begins seemed to fit that portion of the synopsis.

    It is also possible that the fact that the Enterprise is under the water, may be called back when another starship falls into the ocean, to foreshadow the fact it is not lost.

    Two starships in the ocean? Such awesomeness is too much to contemplate!

    Good Grief, that's thing that annoyed me the most. It's like Abrams can't stand the fact that the Enterprise is you know a frakking STARSHIP and needs to be in space. No, that's been done to death so we need put her in the middle of the desert or underwater. In the next movie Abrams will be making it swim through jello because its Kewl. Bah!

    I've long predicted jello as the logical next step.

    I knew it was coming as soon as I saw they went with those short TOS dresses.

    First off, the Prime Directive in instances of a genocidal nature is probably the most insanely assinine, stupid thing ever written. I totally get it and agree with the idea behind it for non-interference in developing cultures, but stopping a culture from dying is nowhere near a crime in my book. Though it makes it cool that they try to do it surreptitiously.

    Also, the device can't be remotely activated because then we wouldn't have a cool scene of Spock trying to survive in an exploding volcano.

    Nah, that's already been done with the space amoeba.

    Unfortunately the new dresses are nowhere near as short as the TOS ones.

    Judging by our own asinine intervention in our own time, I don't think the Prime Directive is so bad. Cruel maybe but sometimes the natural course of civilization is to die. Remember the Klingons were result of an advance race interfering and look at the mess they made.

    That's true, you really need a tasty fruity flavor. You need what ever is stuck all over the starship or the Communications officer to be edible.
