    Carol Marcus said advanced warp capabilities. Also when Khan was telling Kirk about the Vengeance he said that it has 3x the speed of the Enterprise. Given that the Enterprise of this universe has a maximum speed of warp 8. The only thing i can think of is the Vengeance has a transwarp drive.

    Warp 8 max... and yet they caught up with Nero at warp 4...

    I don't remember that they ever "caught up" to Nero. He was at his destination every time they chased him (i.e. he got there well before the Enterprise).

    Well, what was he waiting for to drill Earth, then ?

    Probably looking for the best place to do it.

    I don't know. One thing in the 2009 movie that bugged me was how slow Nero was getting on with his plan.

    That could be it. I hear an "m" sound in there somewhere. Each time I've seen the film, I thought she said "multiple warp capability".

    In the movie you don't even need Warp or Transwarp Drive, when you can use a transporter to beam yourself from Earth to Qonos on the spot!
