He can't do anything to save Romulus til he has Red Matter, and he doesn't have Red Matter til he has the Jellyfish. I think that's relatively straightforward from the film.

Plus it's actually not in any danger for another 129 years, so he has a bit of time on his hands.

It is a thread told by idiots, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

It's not the least bit 'unlikely' considering what we know TNG-era ships to be capable of...

I agree that it's totally straightforward, but if you listen to the average pleb it's TEH UBER POLT HLOE OF TEH DOOM.

Yeah, plot holes vary according to mileage - for some it's how Spock got off Delta Vega and over to Earth.

Who knows!
