just about every aspect of this film has been nit-picked around here (funfun!) but this is something that bothered me the first time i saw it and every subsequent viewing: the girl on the bridge who, during the scene where vulcan is imploded, says the above line, then they continue to hang around for several more minutes. long enough, if memory serves, for kirk and sulu to be beamed back aboard and spock to go down to rescue his parents and return.
what is this? bad editing? bad writing? and anyway, most people understand on some level that this would be the case. why was this line even in there? seems like a cheap attempt to elevate the tension where this wasn't really necessary.
