Interesting that Sarek managed to break tradition to marry Amanda, a human woman he clearly loved. And yet Sarek is pissed for decades because his son didn't follow his wishes and adhere to expectations. I'm quite sure Sarek raised a few eyebrows when he chose to marry an Earth woman.
Never thought of it but again you're right, Warped9. Astute observation!
Everything worked right in that episode. Yeah, you really did feel the heat on Vulcan when you watched that didn't you? I did!
The writing was beyond excellent and plotting was was good. Pacing did slow down a little prior to and during the battle scene...my guess was to make it last the full 25 minutes.
The actors did seem a bit confused during the Vulcan scenes...maybe the action was a bit too alien for them, but Nimoy was on his game and definately in the zone.
The look on Nimoy's (and Maj's) face were priceless.
I can watch it over and over and over and over...
