Was this a weird line for anyone else? At the very end of the movie, when Kirk is promoted to Captain, we see Old Spock up in the rafters and he mutters this line.
I mean, I get what he's saying, but really? Thrusters on full? You don't have anything better? Maybe something about warp?
The flash back I had at that scene was to the final scene of the final episode of Enterprise. Deanna and Will in the rafters watching the formation of the federation...I almost expected Spock to say, "Computer, end program."
