Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan - Genesis Created a Planet???
The Genesis project was designed to transform a dead moon or planet into a liveable planet. Yet at the end of The Wrath Of Khan, in a nebula with only gases and such, when it is activated it has suddenly created a planet to transform. Sorta like using spray paint that creates the car it's painting. Also sorta makes the whole "bringing Spock back to life" thing unlikely, since there should have been no Genesis planet to begin with.

Genesis worked by rearranging the molecular (maybe even atomic?) structure of the planet it was activated on. Since it ultimately got activated inside a nebular rather than on a planet, it used the gasses in the nebula for its matter & rearranged the molecular/atomic structure, gathering the matter together into a planet. You'll notice that once the planet is formed, the nebula is gone.

Or, we just overlook things to be convenient to the plot. Though, I guess officially, the OP has a point.
