Factual error: At one point Khan threatens to target the Enterprise's life support systems which are located behind her "aft nacelle". The Enterprise doesn't have an aft nacelle; as the many exterior shots show, it has a port nacelle and a starboard nacelle. Khan a) is familiar enough with Starfleet ships to know this basic fact about the Enterprise, and b) can see its nacelles for himself on his own viewscreen while he's delivering this line. There is no "nacelle" housing the impulse engines. They are enclosed by the hull of the saucer section. (01:37:25)

Christopher Pike: Are you giving me attitude, Spock?
Spock: I'm expressing multiple attitudes simultaneously, Sir. To which are you referring?
Question: When The Enterprise reaches Kronos, we see one of Krono's moons was half blown away long before the events of Into Darkness Take Place. In Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, one of Kronos' moons blows half away in an "incident." That incident takes place later on in the lives of the characters when they come close to retirement in the previous reality before it was altered. Are we to assume that either: A different Kronos moon blew long before Star Trek VI in a similar fashion, or that the change of events from the previous film had such a strong butterfly effect that the Kronos moon suffered an incident much sooner than it originally had?

Chosen answer: The explosion of the Moon Praxis in the original Universe was due to extensive over mining and energy production. In the first movie that took place in the alternate reality, an entire Klingon armada was destroyed by the Narada. It is logical to assume that the Klingons began to over-mine the moon in order to obtain the resources necessary to replace so many lost ships, causing the moon to explode several decades before it happened in the Prime timeline.
