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.

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. (0) Comments
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. (0) Comments
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. (0) Comments
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? (0) Comments
It is Star Date 2260 in the movie. 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. (1) Comments
Not to mention that 1960's Khan couldn't possible be of any advice to create a Dreadnought-Class Starship. His knowledge of technology would based around electricity, radar and relais but nothing about trans-warp or photon-torpedos.
There's nothing suspicious about having a hero's ship blown to pieces. Especially when it's done in near-earth orbit. No one would ever wonder why there's a debris field from one of Earth's most advanced starships. (0) Comments
When two of your senior officers and close friends protest and even quit your team over a mission that has poor documentation and is against every protocol you've sworn to uphold... go ahead and continue on with that mission. What could possibly go wrong? (0) Comments
Rather than question whether you should be allowing yourself to obey a villain who you have just taken prisoner for trial on Earth, do exactly what he says. Since he is a vengeful terrorist who has just killed people in order to fulfill his motives, let him go with you completely unguarded, or more specifically, guarded without armed personnel, onto another ship with which he will wreak more havoc and get more revenge once he has escaped.

After believing a vengeful terrorist who is extremely skilled at fighting, your red shirted guards won't question this fact and walk with him completely unarmed, which doesn't help the fact that he might decide to flip out. (0) Comments
After getting the crap blown out of it by the bigger ship all of the hallways Spock in running through to get to Kirk are in pristine condition with no battle damage what so ever. And engineering should basically be on fire.
When looking for someone to bribe into blowing up a secret Starfleet military installation always hang out at a hospital and wait for a Starfleet employee to show up. You'll be able to pick them out even without their uniform. (0) Comments
