! I'm not really out to learn everything
about the movie before the 17th, but I was really curious about that particular item. Be interesting to see whether or not ADF works that into his novelization or not (which I'm hoping will be available from the Sony Store on the 21st for my E-reader).
Although I'm a self-admitted spoiler-whore, I'll agree with you that knowing too
much can diminish the impact of seeing a film for the first time. Then again, reading the novelization of ST:TMP a month before seeing the movie didn't stop me from loving every minute of it.
