Well I cant pretend to have read 90 plus pages of this thread but I skimmed a few.
I loved this film, miles better than the last one.
I was watching with glee when they did the reveresed TWOK scenes imagining the fan angst it would cause.
Wrath of Khan isn't just my favourite Trek film it's my favourite film full stop.
I thought they pulled the homage off brilliantly and enjoyed every minute of it, I 'll be going again soon.
