Re: "The Three Saaviks"

From what I've always understood, Kirstie Alley was the first choice to play Saavik in STVI:TUC. There are two different stories on this, one is she was too involved with "Cheers" to meet the STVI production schedule and she had to decline, the other is she asked for more than what Paramount was willing to pay for her to do the movie, and the offer was withdrawn.

Robin Curtis, as noted, was never approached for the part.

I never knew Cattrall refused to take the part as "Saavik #3"...a shame, because if you tune out the name Valeris and pretend she's Saavik, the part works so much better and has so much more impact, especially Spock's almost uncontrolled anger toward her.
