A bit off subject, but the size of the ship vs the size of the crew...in a more real situation...how could a ship of that size be properly maintained over the amount of time Nero was waiting on Spock? Systems should have been quite degraded by the time they attacked Vulcan.

I just took that as a reason that the ship was so "dirty" and ships systems seemingly strung together. Albeit the ship was originally a mining ship and we can't really count the ship being Borg-enhanced as in the pre-story in the prime universe.

Which gets back to the fact that how could the movie have properly explained a mining vessel being converted into a poorly maintained weapon of war and still kick most of Star Fleet's butt? I could have understood a better transition to the movie version if Nero had just "taken" an advanced Romulian ship while he was in the prime universe.

I'll post in another thread for anyones reply!

If Nero has human-looking feet, why does he wear split-toe boots?

His hands were "normal": Four fingers and an oppositional thumb, as "humanoid" peoples usually are. Then to say, that his feet should be similar in design. (except for the oppositional thumb)

Then again.............................How do we even know that he had "feet"? Could have just as easily been another set of "hands" disguised as "feet". (Picked his nose with his "toes" then?)

I just thought of that guy in "Quantum of Solace" who sliced his foot open with an axe. (e-youch!) I bet he could have then worn a set of those boots! (or one boot for that foot!)

Then there was that crewman in STVI who (Chekov?) tried to place at the scene of the murder of the Klingon Chancellor based on the "boots" found. Turned out that the dude's feet were not at all what one would expect!

Is that a non-sequitur?
