I did like this movie, but there were some "really bad science" moments. One scene in particular really took the cake, and that was when the Enterprise came out of warp 237,000 kilometers from Earth and right next to the moon - which is 384,000 miles from Earth.
And then it got worse with the Enterprise getting "caught in the Earth's gravity" - from over halfway to the moon (or right next to it as we saw).
These filmmakers have science advisers, do they not? Boy, and I thought the 2009 film screwed up in not realizing that Spock could have just gone back in time further to stop Nero if he wanted.
