For one, it could have still been molten.

Besides, we know that Ceti Alpha V had been stable long enough for life to evolve. We actually even know what star this is, and it is an old star — a red giant! Astronomers name stars after the constellation they are in. Cetus is a sea monster, sometimes called a whale. The stars in each constellation are named after the Greek alphabet in decreasing order of brightness. So Alpha Ceti is the brightest star in Cetus, also known as Menkar though due to a technically it is actually the second brightest.

People have been known to just blow them up. Or maybe they had to make room for an intergalactic freeway. There is another possibility though. Since such intense heat makes light gasses like hydrogen evaporate, these giant planets could not have formed there. They must have formed farther out in their solar system and migrated inward. Eventually, due to interactions between comets and the outer planets, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune started to drift outward.
Then, when Jupiter and Saturn got into a certain configuration, their orbits became more elliptical and all hell broke loose. Saturn got driven outwards, and then started having gravitational encounters with Neptune and Uranus. They got thrown farther outward, and started scattering comets everywhere. In fact, Uranus and Neptune might even have swapped orbits, and there might have been a fifth gas giant planet that was flung out of the Solar System.
This may sound nuts, but simulations show that this is what happens if you start the planets off with a more compact configuration. So maybe something similar happened in the Ceti Alpha system, causing the planets in that system to shift their orbits, and Khan just made up all that hoo-ha about a planet exploding. Khan was in effect cast out of paradise by Kirk when he was banished. I like that his planet then literally followed suit. It was a brilliant move to have it accomplished with Ceti eels — creatures that burrow into your ears and wrap themselves around your cerebral cortex.
Take toxoplasma gondii. When rats are infected with this protozoan, they stop fearing cat urine and become bolder, even becoming attracted to it. This makes them get eaten more, allowing the parasite to be transferred to the cat, the only place where it can sexually reproduce.
In fact, a large fraction of humans are infected. Their larvae infect grasshoppers. When they mature, they make the grasshoppers jump to their death in water, where the parasite can escape and breed. Of course for a species to become a parasite, it must evolve along with its host. But if there is one thing we know about the Star Trek universe it is that almost all life is humanoid, and they are everywhere. Maybe Ceti Alpha V had humanoids or other creatures that were close enough in the past. Kirk knows that the nebula will interfere with sensors and shields, at least leveling the playing field, and maybe giving him the advantage.
Nebulae in space are unbelievably rarefied by Earth standards. In fact, in most of the pretty nebulae you see pictures of have between and 10, particles per cubic centimeter. Nebulae actually have a density somewhere between a pretty good vacuum and the best vacuum we can make on Earth.

Why then can we see nebulae at all? The main reason is because they are huge — many lightyears in diameter. When you add up all that volume, it turns out there is a lot of stuff in there. Since they just entered the nebula, you should be able to see empty space in one direction, and a diffuse glow in the other.
And the ships were so close that you should be able to easily see the other ship. Even if the sensors were screwed up — just put spotters on the windows! But hey, they had to take some artistic license to show depth and to make things more visually interesting. So I actually have no problem with how the final battle looked visually.

Your standard, run-of-the-mill nebula is called an HII pronounced H-two region. These clouds glow because some electrons are still bound to atoms sometimes only fleetingly , and they change energy levels, emitting a photon in the process. But when a gas cloud gets really dense, we call it a molecular cloud. The gas is densest in the cores of these clouds, where it can reach a million or perhaps even a billion particles per cubic centimeter.
As a result, they look like dark patches in the sky. Molecular cloud cores are so different than interstellar space, I can image that they built starships for general cruising and not to go into really dense areas.
After all, you are running into stuff at really high speeds in a spaceship. Even impulse power is a quarter the speed of light. Kwan as "The Wrath of Kwan. Spock's sacrifice in that film is also referenced with Data's sacrifice here. While the rest of the crew is trying to get the engines started before disaster strikes, both Jean and Spock slip away unnoticed and sacrifice themselves to save their companions many of the shots, facial expressions and reactions of characters in both movies are the same.
Both movies end with a voice over by the character who died and a long panning shot over an idyllic scene that shows the final resting place of Jean and Spock with a hint that they might not be dead at all. Even the score played over the final scene in X2 sounds closely related to Khan's familiar theme. Train Episode 1. Kill Bill: Vol.
