** Which makes his entire plan to destroy Vulcan pointless, as by extension it is not the Vulcan, Spock knows, and thus not one he has reason to care about.

* IntelligibleUnintelligible: The other characters have no trouble understanding a word Chekov says, despite him having a [[FakeRussian "Russian" accent]] thicker than ''borscht''. This is inverted, however, when the computer has no idea what a "nuclear wessel" is. And when the computer can't understand his passcode, because of his mangling of "Vwictor Vwictor". (Incidentally, AntonYelchin really is Russian-born. The accent is still very, very fake, especially being that the quirks of it are actually Slovakian, and not Russian, as commented on in the DVD behind the scenes extras.)

* PairTheSmartOnes: Spock and Uhura. Uhura is one of the top cadets in her class, was once Spock's teaching assistant, and earned her spot on the Enterprise by knowing more Klingon and Romulan than the sitting communication officer. Spock is one of the Academy's most smartest and esteemed graduates and is first officer of the ship. The fact that she was once his teaching assistant definitely underlines that she's smart enough to keep up with him.

This is a bad case of AllInTheManual, as reading the prequel comic reveals that Nero witnessed the beginning of the supernova, but the Romulan senate [[IgnoredExpert refused to listen to him even with concrete evidence]]. So once he goes back in time, he figures that if that senate wouldn't listen to him, the one he would now face sure as hell wouldn't. In the comic he also works closely with Spock on the Federation science project to prevent the disaster, hearing promises that everything will end up all right... only for it to [[GoneHorriblyWrong go horribly wrong]]. That in turn makes Nero's desire to destroy Vulcan and the Federation more understandable. Spending a decade inside a Klingon Prison after going back into the past didn't help his sanity either.

* AWizardDidIt:
** WordOfGod says that Future Spock seeing the planet Vulcan in the sky was actually a psychic vision similar to how Spock can sense large numbers of vulcans dying over long distances in ''TheOriginalSeries''.
** The {{Novelization}} and ComicBookAdaptation say that Kirk's escape pod landed so conveniently near Spock's cave because the timeline was trying to repair itself by bringing Kirk and Spock together.
** Abrams says that the reason why technology is more advanced in the past than in the future is because the shuttles evacuating the Kelvin scanned Nero's ship and then studied the futuristic technology.
** A tie-in comic about Nero says that a stellar cartographer on Rura Pente and [[StarTrekTheMotionPicture Vejur]] helped him work out where and when Future Spock would emerge from the [[UnrealisticBlackHole black hole]].

The first theatrical Trek film to feature any of the original characters in 15 years. Released 7 years after ''[[Film/StarTrekNemesis Star Trek Nemesis]]'' (the biggest gap between Trek films to date) from which it takes a major ToneShift and, believe it or not, to which it is also a loose StealthSequel.

* RippleEffectProofMemory: Played with. One may think Spock Prime would have new memories of what his ''younger self just experienced''. Then again, he's the [[http://orangejuiceinbishopsgarden.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/mmwithemma.blogspot.com_.jpg Prime Reality version of Spock]] (hence his nickname), separate from the [[http://www.scificool.com/images/2012/04/Zachary-Quinto-in-Star-Trek-2009-Movie-Image.jpg New Alternate One]] formed by a new spacetime continuum branching off the original universe. Despite being a younger incarnation, whatever happens to New Spock would most likely not, in any way, ''physically'' affect Spock Prime whose only affected by the [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100220194739/startrek/images/d/d5/STO_timeline_diagram.jpg original timestream]] (anything in the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' franchise before the 2009 reboot).

* CallForward: Commander Spock explains that the ''Kobayashi Maru'' test was a SecretTestOfCharacter to find out how a captain would act in the face of certain death. Captain Kirk faces near certain death in ''StarTrekIntoDarkness''. [[spoiler: Only Scotty rebooting the ''Vengeance'' saved Kirk and the ''Enterprise''.]]

* PlayingGertrude: Winona Ryder plays Spock's mother. She is six years older than ZacharyQuinto. Conversely, Ben Cross, who plays his father, is 30 years older, just to uphold the DoubleStandard.
