exactly what i thought, too. how can it be that a few years in the future, starfleet forgot one of its most important rules and changes back its policy to the days of good ol' James T. Kirk?
even more, how can you justify beaming down 5 (!!!) captains of different ships for a highly dangerous away mission that quite definitely contains heavy fighting and the probability of casualties?
