Yeah they line "They killed your son" would've been really strong coming from Saavik.
Agreed. The depth of the whole plot would have been aided. I never really liked Curtis as Saavik either. She was much better cast in her role on TNG. I actually agree with Meyer. Cattrail would have been an excellent Saavik from the get go.
Ultimately, I don't think of Saavik as beloved at all, mainly due to the recast. Had one actress played it throughout, she could have been, & then to use a character like that, in a situation like the Valeris story, would have been fantastic drama
An unfortunate loss that it didn't work out that way
