Mission to the Planet of the Plot Devices

We went to see the new Star Trek movie last night.  It was a lot of fun.  It ran through the continuity with a large doomsday weapon, of course, but once you got over that it was great.  The casting was brilliant.  Somehow, the smaller plot holes were more noticeable than the ones large enough to drive a spaceship through (Why do we know the Romulans even exist?  What exactly is a heavily pregnant woman doing on a quasi-military vessel far from home space?)  I am looking forward to the sequels, though I hope they manage to fit in more character development.  It’s harder to do that in movie format than in episodic TV.
