Huh...if that were the case, it must have taken awhile for the E-D to figure it out since just one or two hits from a BoP wouldn't be enough to damage the ship that much.
We're talking about the E-D. That ship's Warp core goes critical if somebody insults it. And this is 24th century Starfleet engineering we're talking about. a hit anywhere
on the ship can cause damage anywhere else.
Like that huge explosion on the bridge that happens when they trigger the "ionic pulse", even though every hit was to the engineering section.
To be fair that's explained in-universe by the Klingons aiming to destroy, and by the time they decide to target the bridge it's too late. Though why they didn't do that with the first shot is also questionable
It also makes the saucer landing scenes easier to film since they didn't have to use a visibly damaged model.
I'm assuming that the "magnetic interlocks" that were ruptured regulated the flow of M/AM into the reaction chamber, which might explain why they couldn't simply eject the core. What didn't make sense is why there was no similar mechanism to eject/vent the antimatter into space as a backup. And it's not like there'd be no Ent-E afterwards; the Ent-A was decommissioned after getting shot up in the previous film to make way for the Enterprise-B so there exists a precedent.
It's no use debating a moron; they drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.
Your claim of using a scientific equation is laughable when all you have done is butcher science to the point it makes 'The Core' look like a fucking documentary. Just because you have the attention span of a fruit fly doesn't mean the rest of us are so encumbered.
