It would've been awesome if Kirk had said, "...because I am allowing it, so SHUT THE F**K up."
Trek's first F-bomb would've been epic right there, the passion and drama behind it would've knocked me on my behind.
That would have been awesome
I watched the clip finally and it was good. I really liked Pine's take on seething rage. And Ben is always good so no need to comment.
Pine is bringing strong emotion to the scene, but scenes with great dialogue with the villain like these make me nostalgic for Shatner's Kirk - he had an intensity when confronting villains in dialogue - like when he confronted Kodos the Executioner, that was so intense... it would be perfect for a scene like this!
