Re: Is J.J. Abams "Star Trek" Sustainable?
But if you wanna know, yes, ST09 did have an untolerable and inexcusable cynical moment; when Spock basically said that he wanted revenge for mummy. Orci took so mnay ingredients from TWOK but missed the key idea about the futility or rather self-harming nature of revenge.
Spock was expressing his grief. We often say things that we have no intention of carrying out in moments of grief. Spock is half-human.
