Re: Deleted scene where Spock explains how the timeline "healed itself
It would have been nice for this dialogue to have been included on the DVDs and BluRay discs, but oh well. A lot like the ommitted dialogue between Luke and Spirit Obi-Wan in RETURN OF THE JEDI where Ben tells Luke how and why he and his sister Leia were hidden from their father and the Emperor and he mentions Bail Organa and others we don't meet until the prequels years later. More exposition than anything else and just takes up time.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
