I'm wondering if the guy who talked about all the Star Trek plot holes has ever done any research on supplamental ST lore? Let's learn a lesson from EVE on this one: Just because someone happens to be flying a mining barge, doesn't mean they don't know how to kick your sorry little ***. (Have had this happen a few times to me. I really, REALLY hate drones.) Also, the Vulcans may have had a fleet in ST: Enterprise, but it was probably either disolved when the Federation had a strong, working navy, or were just elsewhere. Or were part of the debris field. I think I saw a ring from a D'Kyr class in in debris feild scene, but I'm not sure. Also, as long as the Kelvin had engines, it could've rammed the Nerada. Even in the debris field above Vulcan, many of the ships still had mostly intact hulls, certainly enough mass to do damage to a ship, even the Nerada, especially if Nerada's sheilds were down.
Also, the Nerada used BORG tech, which would explain how it was easily able to take out so many ships. They could have been using Borg jamming tech. Also... How do you even WORRY about three guys shooting towards a planet from low orbit? (Unless they're ODSTs, with ACTUAL GUNS) ((Pardon me, I'm just a really big fan of Halo, and I use that as my primary future tech reference. It just boggles my mind how we could've gone from Phasers to Lead in a little over a hundred years.))
Now, the plot hole I want explained: In the only DS9 episode I've ever watched, Trials and Tribbleations, the main thing the Defiant crew want to do in the end is to disaible a tricobalt bomb hidden in a tribble before it explodes. They found it in the middle of a tribble pile near a far corner of the quadrotridicali storage bin. My question is, how could have it killed anyone if it was that far away? My guess is that a small tricobalt device holds nowhere near the power of a torp, so explain why a small bomb would have more power than, say, conventional explosives. Especially if the Quantum Bombs we have in the game don't have a wide area of effect either. Nor do they do that much damage, actually.
