That's interesting, thanks for that!

However, an oversight by the writers of the latest "Star Trek" film is a line by Scotty at the end of the film when he says "Dilithium chambers at maximum!". The film was set between 2255-2258 (from when Kirk first enrols into Starfleet through to the film's climactic events). Unless one can argue that the Enterprise was a flagship and thus equipped with the very latest innovations of the time?

James T. Kirk becomes a brilliant yet cynical misfit who is finally convinced to join Starfleet by Captain Christopher Pike in 2255. Three years later, Kirk, Spock, and the young crew of the USS Enterprise, with guidance from Spock's future self, must figure out a way to work together to prevent the one responsible for the death of Kirk's father, the future Romulan known as Nero, from wreaking destruction throughout the Federation in a mad quest for vengeance, using a powerful new weapon. For some, their help comes too late.

Sure, on topic i can't think what the hell the crystals are used for at all. nor why the engine would need them since magnetic fields would be doing all the work.

Here's what the wiki says:

Dilithium, also known as radan is an element, a member of the hypersonic series, mostly occurring as crystalline mineral. It was used to power the warp drive systems of many starships. Dilithium regulated the matter/antimatter reaction in a ship's warp core because of its ability to be rendered porous to light-element antimatter when exposed to high temperatures and electro-magnetic pressures. It controls the amount of power generated in the reaction chamber, channeling the energy released by mutual annihilation into a stream of electro-plasma.
