Answer: she was delayed.

The answer needn't be more complex than that. The same...

I dunno, like others I'd still prefer to see some 'exploring strange new worlds' rather than a re-tread of an earlier episode. Khan's a human villain - part of this world, rather than anything...

His name's Robau, not Kelvin.

Anyway - considering the Narada's vast size, blowing up his shuttle would've done about as much damage as if he'd bent over and farted at it.
