    Starfleet HQ really has no aerial defense system? Seems like one of those places that should have the MOST in defensive technology.

      When dealing with a pre-warp civilization that has barely invented the wheel, the best way for Enterprise to stay undetected is to dive and hide at the bottom of the ocean, 'cause you know, Stone Age people might spot her orbiting the far side of the planet and rising from the ocean looks awesome in 3D.

        Let's unthaw a guy 200 years behind in technology to design advanced weapons for us.

            Admiral Marcus awakens Khan, who lived nearly 300 years ago, to build weapons for Starfleet. That's like awakening Napoleon Bonaparte to build weapons for today's military.

              Despite having access to the remnant of an extremely advanced and powerful starship, go ahead and rebuild the Enterprise using her original design.

                Spock will never reveal any details about his timeline. That being said, Spock will reveal details about his timeline.

                  When a terrorist strike occurs in a Starfleet facility, it's perfectly okay to meet in a predictable location.

                      Lets take one of the coolest vilians of all time played by Mr. Suave himself, Ricardo Montaban and replace him with a stuffy British dude.

                        I agree, Benedict Cumberbatch should have played Mr. Spock in the first place since Zachary Quinto is too "emo" for the role.

                        they left out his mental flaws as well - 2D thinking.

                      "You should have let me sleep." So essentially Khan was just a really cranky guy because he didn't get his ni-ni time?

                        The Enterprise also doubles as a submarine.

                            Even though your shiny new ship has a bajillion phase cannons, when it comes to a killing blow, pull out your unnecessary rails rather than just continue to use the weapons that have successfully blown the snot out of the Enterprise.

                              The Enterprise's designers apparently not only made the engine room something like Willy Wonka's factory, but make the critical component that needs to remain aligned something that is hard to reach and hard to fix.

                                  Nibiru is still around? I thought we'd deep six that planet, with all the conspiracy theorists running around.

                                    When it comes to a need for advanced weapon and starship design, rather than develop a think tank from the best and brightest scientists and military officers, it's a better idea to just revive an uncontrollable super enhanced maniac and let him design it for you.

                                      Kirk's body is very resistant to radiation-caused burns. Most skin would bleed from critically damaged skin cells to the point of skin falling apart. But not Kirk. Screen perfect.

                                          Rather than do whatever you can to save a dying person, just mind meld with them so that you can experience their last moments. Because that's a better way to go about things.

                                            At least in this reboot they had the decency to kill Pike instead of making him live out his life in that thing with beeping lights to talk.

                                              Never mind that you could just transport a bunch if tactical nukes from Earth to kill Kahn, you know since trans warp beaming has clearly been established. Instead send one of your most irrational and hotheaded former Captains to the edge of enemy territory to fire a bunch of untested weapons at him. How did Kirk not think of this?

So if Khan is 300 years old then we had the ability for advanced Genetic Manipulation in the 1960's. We also had the ability for deep space transport and cryo-sleep. Plus I don't recall any big planet threatening wars in the 1960's.

His knowledge of technology would based around electricity, radar and relais but nothing about trans-warp or photon-torpedos.

And engineering should basically be on fire.

You'll be able to pick them out even without their uniform.
