Well exactly - that's what I said.
It has a dramatic point (like many points in many of the Trek films) but if you scratch a little deeper it may not make a lot of sense (also like many a moment of the Trek films). So, as long as you don't ask any questions about it, it works perfectly well in the moment of the film.
But really, Horatio, you know fine well fans do eventually scratch a little deeper and ask 'wait a minute.............' and these kinds of little discussions are ten a penny. There's nothing wrong with having them when it suits.
