Question: With all of the Federation's extraordinarily advanced knowledge, science, medicine and technology, why is it that they can't seem to repair Captain Pike's physical injuries? In the original series, Pike was crippled and hideously disfigured by Delta Rays; but the best they could offer him was a motorized wheelchair with a couple of "yes" or "no" flashing communication lights. In the rebooted franchise, Pike suffered much less severe injuries; yet, once more, all they could offer him was a simple wheelchair in the first movie, and then a walking cane in the second. In Star Trek canon, we know that they have performed brain and spinal transplants, regenerated damaged organs, healed mortal wounds (in a matter of seconds), cured horrible diseases with a single hypo-injection, and even resuscitated the dead on more than one occasion. In Star Trek novels, there is mentioned even the possibility of cycling an injured individual through a previously-stored Transporter Pattern and completely removing injuries altogether. Yet the best they ever did for Captain Christopher Pike onscreen was a wheelchair and a cane?Charles Austin Miller
Question: What happened to all of the Enterprise's Shuttles and the ship Kirk's team took to Qo'nos? Did they all become disabled that only Kirk and Khan would jump out an airlock and shoot through a dangerous debris field to board the Vengeance? Rather than taking an entire strike team to take out the minimal crew on the other ship, just the two of them go. Makes no sense, given the situation. Also, consider that even the escape pods have propulsion capabilities as shown in the previous movie when they ejected Kirk off the ship.
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?aamovielover
