81 (who?)
A monument to all our sins by thefirstfleet A monument to all our sins by thefirstfleet
Okay, now we're threading on shaky ground, but why not? Let me give you my recipe on how JJ Trek should have been made:

The beginning: In the far future, Romulan navy veteran Nierruwh (his name should be spelled like this) witnesses his homeworld being destroyed. Behind the tragedy is the Federation's negligence, or even malignance, in letting the Hobus supernova grow out of control and not doing anything to pervent the impending disaster. Nierruwh, one of the few survivors of the RSN (he's not a miner. How could a miner get a dreadnought and could conduct such elaborate strategies?), blames Ambassador Spock, a kindred soul, now a mortal enemy of his. In the wake of Hobus' wormhole solution, both Spock's ship and Nierruwh's IRW Narada (Why a Scimitar? Because 1, we know it as the pinaccle of Romulan tech 2, we are familiar with it 3, it makes much more sense than an upside-down Christmas tree) get sucked in the wormhole. The Narada arrives to the past to meet the USS Kelvin NCC-514 (no zero at the front of the registry number and looking like a proper TOS ship). The doomed crew of the Klevin look with terror upon the monster their Federation has created: a monument to their sins...

Well, you can say the Romulan Star Empire conscripts troops- all able bodied Romulans must go through military service('Service guarantees Citizenship!') and can be called up in times of war. So Nero and his crew will have had military training and/or combat experience. Nero himself, judging by his tactics, is an RSN veteran. But cashiered out of service for injury/contract expired etc etc. So many reasons.

So he just happens to be on the other side of the Galaxy on mining operations when Romulus is blown to hell. He has this massive mining vessel (don't diss mining vessels, they're incredibly hard to destroy things because they have to function in the harshest environments, and probably because they're Romulans, would be heavily armed  and armoredanyway. Refitted with RSN weaponry, they would have outclassed anything in TOS), it can take a lot of hits, it has a planetary core drill which makes it easier to deliver red matter directly to a planet's core(!)
Modern day super tankers are bigger and heavier than even the largest naval vessels. They have double hulls, which makes them that much harder to sink than even a warship (seriously).
But yeah, the Narada does things that would put a TOS warship to shame.

Hmm, it makes much more sense now...

Just saying, in a warrior culture like the Romulans, even the tea lady has military training and experience, what more a bunch of roughnecks operating in the deep wilderness of space where anything can happen. With a ship designed to crack open planetoids.

It really just goes to show that the old Trek designs could have worked just fine on the big screen had they given them the right attention. Light them properly, throw a little flare on the hull, and it'll work.

Look at that Kelvin, if someone who's just a hobbyist (no offense intended by that tff) can get the TOS stuff looking that good. Imagine what paid, trained professionals could do?

Thank you very much.

And no offense taken, I am a hobbyist :D
