If I was his crew, I'd have said "erm....Mr Nero....why blame the Vulcans for Romulus being destroyed by a natural event? I didn't see YOU coming up with any ideas to develop red matter....let's just go to Alternate Romulus and live there"

I feel sorry for them. I'm sure they would have liked to have been saved
Well, as you remember they swore to abide by his every word in the Countdown comic. Heck, I'm sure they would have wanted help, but I'm sure most of them died and if they didn't were seriously injured than to relay a message to the Enterprise for rescue. But, nonetheless that is a good point that you brought up JR585.

I don't remember that. I didn't read "Countdown". And I don't plan to. If you watch the final scenes of the Narada in its death throes, you'll notice a bunch of the Tatoomulans running around and some look like they are fleeing their stations trying to find a way out. That may not be what's happening, but that's what it looks like.

On reflection if the Narada was truly trapped in a singularity they would not have been able to send a communications signal out. There must have been a significant risk of the ship surviving such weak gravity and falling through another wormhole in a damaged state.

I think that was the implied logic being ensuring it's destruction...........to avoid that (and the attendant risks of him surviving who knows where).

The problem is that by the end of that scene, the entire Narada had been consumed by the black hole thingy. And as the singularity (and I use that term loosely) opened inside the ship, it was being crunched up into little tiny bite-size morsels. You could see that in the entire scene. Little pieces of the tentacles breaking off and floating around and such. The ship and all aboard were doomed as soon as the Jellyfish crashed into it. The "arm phasers. Fire everything we've got" was overkill on NuKirk-the-jerk's part, in my opinion. And to add to his incompetence, he stayed around and watched the destruction instead of moving the fuglyprise to a safe distance. Now that was truely stupid. And they promoted that moron to captain! AbramsTrek's version of Starfleet is apparently run by idiots. And that's my opinion.

Yeah, but being an idiot in Starfleet is a fairly transferable skill between universes.

We are talking about a Prime timeline Starfleet that in that era sent the three most senior officers on the ship on every away mission leading to them usually being captured, the ship put at risk by aliens or being taken overand/or death looming for someone until the final rescue or 'save the day' moment..............well just about every episode!!! And yet they never learned................

Starfleet and idiocy go hand in hand in ANY timeline.
