I don't like the humor in it. From Yosemite to "Please, Captain, not infront of the Klingons." I like the idea of someone seeing God in their own image, especially around the time of the rise of the televangelist. I the scene reviewing Spock and Bones' pain. I like hearing about who Sybok is, how somber Spock is in that scene. I don't like all the humor, especially on Nimbus III. It just makes it seem like Sybok isn't all that threatening. It makes fun of trying to make peace, instead of simply showing its failure to do so on Nimbus III. There's a levity to the performance of Sybok, he's not obsessed. He's at peace. That's good for portions of his performance, but I think it would've been better if we saw a bit of the dark side of him as well. He's too likable.
