Another unsettling aspect of the that Saavik is really presented as pretty much an adopted daughter of Sarek and Amanda. Which makes her more of a sister to Spock...which makes what happened on Genesis more than a bit disturbing...
Yeah, but this I think was disturbing in a good way. Saavik was clearly disturbed by what happened on Genesis; it was one of the main issues of the book. One of the reasons she was so disturbed was because of her relationship with Spock, her mentor, and the son of her adopted parents.

not even mentioning that in other books Saavik and Spock later married!
Yeah, well, those books I just ignore.

I really liked the Amanda-Saavik dynamic of this book.
there is no other wisdom
and no other hope for us
but that we grow wise.
