with needless insertions (sorry, Majel) of a character called simply "Chapel" saying lines anyone could have said.
The missing scene, of course, was Chapel escorting Sarek to the Council Meeting. "You're not too late, Ambassador". It was in the comic adaptation. A nice little acknowledgement of the Spock/Chapel encounters in TOS, and that Chapel had been missing from ST II and III.
Cameos by Kyle (ST II), Rand (STs III and IV) and Chapel aren't "needless insertions" for fans of those characters.
