Re: Why are the TOS movies better then the TNG movies?
While I love those comic stories(except Bearclaw is a too over the top jerk who wouldn't have lasted a day in Starfleet) I'm not sure they're a good indication of how movies without Spock would have worked.
I think it does show that the right people can tell compelling Star Trek
stories regardless of who is on the crew roster.
