That's how the constitution was.
crew quarters in the saucer.
engineering and cargo in the secondary.

Only after the Narada is crippled by the red Matter and Kirk offers a peaceful end, (which nero refuses) does the enterprise launch everything she has at her. When Nero yells fire everything, it's when young Spock is piloting the Jellyfish to ram the Narada.

I didnt see any shield impacts, and I think that was explained, 1 hit took out the shields pretty much. The Narada's borg enhanced weapons went through the shields like it was nothing. Hence the shields were never really visable after the first strike. After the encounter with the Narada, the Enterprise pretty much avoids direct contact with it, even going as far as to hide in saturn's orbit to mask her from the Naradas sensors.

I'm amazed the Kelvin survived that long for 800 people to get off board asap!

One thing that did kinda stand out... the transporter...... When could you beam at such long distances. Star Trek 6.... The enterprise nearly had to be in orbit around the planet were the Kit. Accord was to be signed to transport down and save the president. Remember spock counting down till they were with in transporter range? Or did Scotty come up with his special formula after star trek 6????

The only time my eyebrow wrinkled just a tiny bit was with Scotty's cabbage-faced friend. Somehow, Pegg managed to pull off the scenes without them getting too Jar Jar Binks-ish... but it was a close call! Kudos to Pegg's comedic timing.

Remember Relics? Since Scotty is still alive in TNG maybe he came up with it after Nemesis?

I don't recall seeing any shield effect, but i do remember the scene when young Spock lured Narada away from earth. You can see the enemie missiles going right through the Enterprise neck, and near the end of the movie, when young Spock destroyed red Matter , Kirk ordered the crew to finish off the Narada, while it was trapped in the portal. Right after Nero refused to surrender.

Nero last words are: "I have been waiting for this day. This day of reckoning."

There were crew quarters, a back-up sick bay, another secondary bridge (in case the ship was operating with the saucer separated) and recreation facilities in the secondary hull if you go by the old Franz Joseph blueprints...which of course can be seen many times in Trek movies on bridge schematics...does that make them canon?

You also wish to make all the Okudagram in-jokes just as legitimate?
Or is this another pick and choose situation?

Weren't the large windows at the base of the hull from TMP onwards supposed to be the Arboraetum?
