While this may be included under the obvious nod to TWOK, I almost died when the nuSPOCK asked the old spock if he ever encountered a kahn in his travels. I dont know why, but that part just made my hair stand up even tho i knew what old spock was going to say. And he said " something something something.. he will not hesitate to kill you and everyone on that ship" or something to that affect.. either way.. that little part was one of my favorites
I thought that bit was really odd. Surely Spock is constantly coming up against tough situations while serving on the Enterprise- does he really call up his alternate universe self every time to get advice? Talk about prejudicing the jury. Young Spock shouldn't have asked and Old Spock shouldn't have answered.
You have a good point, but I went into the movie with an open mind, and with the intent to enjoy it. So what ever JJ threw at me I took it as new Trek Fact. Of course, once the euphoria passes I will critique the movie for its flaws and start asking "why" but for now I am going to just go ahead and plan my next trip for a second veiwing of the movie.
