But any competant Klingon commander that could capture the whole bag of them would likely shoot all but a few officers who would spend much time in the brain sifter. There would be two hundred armed Klingon Warriors along with the technicians ripping Naranda apart, there would be a dozen cobalt bombs installed ready to blow the ship to bits if it were in danger of falling out of Klingon hands, and the prisoners would NEVER be allowed near their ship again. Near as in even in the same system.
Nero getting captured and then eventually freed by his crew is plausible.
Nero, the ship, and the crew getting captured and THEN escaping requires a level of incompetance that would simply be unbelievable from the Klingons.
IDK, and I guess.
I was told the ship repaired itself (being Borg based). I was also informed that you might be right about the shuttle, and that the ship was repaired enough to cloak prior to Nero and a few crew leaving (prior to being captured). Then during the events of the movie, as Kirk & crew are at Star Fleet, the ship assists in Nero's break out, resulting in the 30+ Klingon ship losses.
Until I read it, I'm not sure, but it does sound like in interesting back story.
