Default I think Sulu saved Enterprise!

Maybe? Since he messed up and couldn't warp off with all of the other ships? They arrived a bit late to where the Narada apparently biatch slapped the rest of the ships that got there first. (Including Farragut! I was in love with green woman!)

Yes, that's exactly what happened. A lucky break.

Yeah...I would say it's obvious that the Enterprise lucked into surviving. It's one of the happy little conveniences that make critics of the movie roll their eyes.

Of course. There was a deck scrubber named Riker on board. Q wouldn't want to miss the chances to insult his great great great grandson.

So you are saying Sulu is the "new" JarJar?

I think even if the Enterprise did warp with the rest of the fleet, Nero would've held fire once he say the name on the hull plating. And his focus would've shifted to Spock sooner. It could've saved lives maybe.

Except for the fact, that that future, and possibly Will Riker will never come into being now with major changes in the timeline.

Q will make SURE the ENT-D crew exist just so he CAN mess with them!

You know, I am a pretty big critic about this movie, but I didn't find anything wrong with the Enterprise showing up a little later, thus surviving the onslaught. What bugged me was the fact such a "green" helmsman was at the controls of the flagship, NOT the same Sulu we knew could fly just about anything. Sure, they made sure to throw in a scene making it clear he could pull off maneuvers that were difficult, but that didn't take the bad taste out of my mouth from the parking brake thing.

All in all... I'm used to the Enterprise showing up a little lat and saving the day!!
