When Kirk and Khan are blown out of the Enterprise garbage chute, it's done by the ~14.7psi air pressure in the hull rushing through the large port carrying them out. When they arrive at the Vengeance, the port is roughly the same size, and the ship's air pressure would be the same. So as they meet this air stream blowing opposite their motion, they should have slowed at the same rate as they were accelerated before, and fallen to the floor at roughly the same distance inside as when they crouched in the Enterprise. If Scotty left the port open any longer, they'd have been blown back out into space, but they certainly wouldn't glide along like paper airplanes in the Vengeance's artificial gravity, which would affect them the instant they passed into its hull. And someone in the Vengeance a hundred feet from the port in a cavernous room wouldn't feel nearly as much wind as there was in the Enterprise's tube. See more »
That's what this one is all about and that is unfortunate because throughout its history the franchise was always more about the story, thoughtful and thought provoking, with meaningful dialog, well developed characters and a great plot. Sure, there was always some action but the action was there with the purpose of advancing the plot and it was never the central tenant of the whole structure.
This installment is all about endless, spectacular action, the plot is nearly non-existent and the skull is numb after wards making you wonder what exactly is it now about the Star Trak that makes it unique, makes it stand out from all the other action packed movies and franchises? What? As it is, absolutely nothing...
In short, JJ Abrams managed to destroy something good and I'm sure he'll be remembered for, something I'm sure he'll be proud of.
