I thought that was a very powerful scene, from one of the absolute best Star Trek films.
In the commentary track of Larry Nemecek and Ira Steven Behr I have with my DVD pack of all six original films, It was Behr I think that mentioned that the way Leonard Nimoy used his hands on Kim Cattrall's face really pulled off the invasive aspect of it.
Reminds me of Spinal Tap, "You should have seen
the cover they wanted to do. It wasn't a glove
, believe me!"
is out of character in TUC.
I'd say they're more out of character in The Voyage Home. Scotty is mentally ill and Kirk is some type of gameshow host.
I love the TOS movies (All of 'em!) but the crew are out of character a lot of the time. Only II and III really get their personalities dead on.
Three is a really underrated film, in my opinion of course. I have no problem with The Final Frontier either mainly because of the humor. However The Search for Spock" had more genuine humor without having to resort to Scotty banging his head on a pipe. "How many fingers am I holding up?" is one of my favorite lines in any of the moviesl
