Star Trek (2009 reboot) Plot Holes and a Correction to Star Wars
Major Plot Hole
In the Star Trek reboot Nero needs his laser drill platforms to complete his mission. Said platforms are completely unshielded in the movie and can be destroyed with handheld weaponry with ease. They are also only protected by a handfull of people at best. It is completely possible for an entourage of current day lumberjacks to destroy the things, yet both Vulcan and Earth don't seem to mind the enormous drill that is racing for the core, despite that a few soldiers, one remote controlled drone, a kamikaze ship or a single shuttle could have easily destroyed the things.
Regarding Star Wars
- The original Death Star could only fire once every 24 hours, firing on the gas giant obscuring the way would have led to them to wait 144 times longer than just going around it.

Hm, the Nero thing could almost be a super plot hole, the entire story hangs on the assumption that no one can be assed to shoot down a clearly hostile, incredibly vulnerable piece of machinery which is not capable of evasive maneuvers. It requires literally every single person in Starfleet to be a complete and utter moron.
