I watched star trek 09 last night on blu ray on my new 60 inch and I noticed something I hadn't before. during the mind meld between kirk and spock, and during the scene in which we first see the star that seconds later goes supernova, we pass a planet quite quickly. now, when I rewound the scene and paused on the planet, it is in fact the exact planet that is shown being obliterated. AKA Romulus. I know this because of the color and look of Romulus in the scene. feel free to rewatch scene and look for yourselves. this gives me cause to believe that maybe the writers did intend for the hobus star to be THE star of Romulus and not some star lightyears away, thus creating quite a large plot hole: no planet can be saved when its star is no longer present. thoughts? p.s. sorry if this has been mentioned in the past.
