Red Holes

Ok. Ya got me there. There is no such thing as a "redhole." And while the "new' Star Trek movie utilizes the illusory "red matter" (taken from the 21st Century TV show "Alias")as a creative device, obviously even the director doesn't know how to use it. The biggest (and reddest) whole in the Star Trek movie is the unswerving stupidity of both Vulcans and Romulans as they have been written of late. Sad.

Nero blames Spock for the death of his world. But it getting sucked through the black hole created by red matter, he creates a new reality---an alternate reality. Excuse me folks, but where are the Time Police when you need them. Doesn't Starfleet have a future organization (circa the 29th Century) to stop just this kind of stupidity from happening?

Nero has red matter aboard his ship. That being the case, why didn't some brilliant pointy-eared person in the 24th Century just use the damned red matter in the first place when the supernova first occurred? Oh, I'm sorry. Then Mr. Abrams would have had to write a REAL Star Trek story. Just like Nemesis. Poor use of a great race, namely the Romulans, once again. This is as plausible as a human clone rising to power and becoming the Praetor of the Romulan Star Empire. Oops did I say that out loud?

Oh and Nero, it doesn't matter if you destroy the Federation. It's an alternate reality you dumb Romulan miner! NOTHING you do will change a damned thing, including bring your wife back! Why cry in your milk when you could have used your seven mile long phallus symbol---er---starship---to take over Romulus and make yourself praetor? Is there NO ambition left in the Empire? DUMB MINER!

But for the sake of argument, let's just say that the Star Trek movie was a Q-induced fantasy. Maybe next movie they will finally succeed in blowing up Earth (in some alternate reality) as well.

Oh and did anyone ever stop to think that, as has been postulated many times in canon, that wormholes are unstable? Neither Spock nor Nero should have ever arrived where they did.
