Abramsverse Inconsistencies

Star Trek (2009)


"Star Trek (2009)" takes place in a new continuity for the most part. From the moment that the USS Kelvin runs into the Narada, galactic history, personal histories and technical developments may diverge from what we know of the TOS era. There is no problem with young Kirk knowing how to drive a stick shift car, which Spock had to show Captain Kirk in TOS: "A Piece of the Action". Several altered basic principles of the Star Trek Universe and real-world facts, as well as the plot holes of the movie constitute inconsistencies though. A few of them are explained either in the Countdown comic or in deleted scenes, but they do not make sense in the movie itself.
