    Where did they come up with the 73rd cryotube, the one they put Khan in at the end? :bigthink:



    And no, they didn't fabricate one...they didn't even know how to turn one off without killing the nigga inside it.

    Douche-Baggy-Bag, if you couldn't figure out there may be a spoiler or two before entering a "major plot flaw" thread, nothing else I could say would help your dumb ass.

    Other plot flaw...Why even bother using starships anymore if you can teleport instantly from San Francisco to the Klingon homeworld? The big war time opponents were Klingons and Romulans, why not just end things quickly by teleporting a planet buster on their respective doorsteps?

    There is no plot flaw. Remember when Robocop told Kirk that he thawed out Khan to get advice on military strategy? That's where the last cryotube came from.

    or they opened up the 73rd tube, dumped the corpsicle into space, and used it for Khan

    Or they just reverse engineered the fucking thing and made another. Not enough of a plot glitch to be concerned with......not major at all IMO. :toptip:

    Also, you don't have to put a SPOILER ALERT for a movie that came out in May and is already on DVD. I saw some other website where a guy was yelled at for not putting a SPOILER ALERT when he said that Fredo was killed in Godfather II. This was a bunch of 20something idiots.

    More interesting flaw: Why does Admiral Marcus growl like Patton, yet his daughter (that he raised) sounds like Princess Diana?


    BTW: Did anyone catch the fact that Sulu tells the shuttle bay to ready the trading ship they captured during the "Mudd incident"? I guess that's where Bones got the tribble.

    Is the "Mudd Incident" a euphemism for Bones doing German scat porn ?

    It's on the bonus disc if you buy the Blu Ray.

    That's one thing I liked about this movie; the little nods and references to the original series and to Wrath of Khan.
