# 1 Star trek 2009
02-14-2012, 04:35 PM
I'm watching this on fx.

I was wondering why uhura and the rest of the starfleet cadets would happen to be in Iowa. And why the enterprise just happened to be being built in Iowa. And why the shuttle for new recruits would be lifting off from Iowa. What's so special about iowa? And were uhura and the rest of the red-uniformed cadets already a year into the academy? They were already dressed in uniforms. So, if the shuttle is for new recruits, why were they already dressed but Kirk and bones weren't? At first I thought uhura and the other red shirts were already a year in, and Kirk graduated in years, hence everyone graduating at the same time. But this doesn't explain bones in 3 years. Was this all for plot convenience?

Different universe. 2009 has about nothing to do with Star Trek other than names and certain characters.

This is all plot convenience if that's what you want to call it.

thats because star trek 2009 had absolutly nothing to do with... wait for it... Star Trek. Not sure what it was but it wasnt star trek.

As far as im concerned JJ Abrams owes me money for watching that garbage.

Of course it is star trek. That's a huge overstatement.

And:

If Vulcan was destroyed, whatever planet or moon Spock and Kirk ended up on, which was close enough to view Vulcan disappear, it doesn't seem to have suffered any effects from the gravitational forces that would've been thrown out of wack in that system.

I believe there is something in the Star Trek lore about an earthquake that opens up some chasm in Iowa. Times change.

The fact that they built the Enterprise on ground is a huge plot hole. Such a waste of resources to build that sort of spaceframe on the ground then have to launch it into orbit (it's not even remotely aerodynamic or feasible even with technobabble enhanced space tech)
