    Unfortunately, if you look at any plot in ST:E, it loses all sense of continuity (and, dare I say, plausibility) before they cue the title sequence.

    In this case, they have a communications device which can communicate with the Enterprise and yet they need to send the entire bridge crew to rescue it. Of course, earlier in the series they've successfully demonstrated the use of the transporter to send and receive inorganic equipment. (Oh, and they did rescue the Captain with the transporter once.)

    I'll grant that it's necessary to suspend some disbelief to follow what's going on in Gene Rodenberry's universe. But when even those farsical rules aren't being followed, the whole show gets to be tedious. It's not fun anymore to watch for its car wreck potential.

      That's just to dull your senses for when the theme song comes on.
