Some of the themes within the action are just starting to sink in for me. I especially like the Kirk/Pike exchange over what happened on Nibiru. It's a Prime Directive issue and for the first time I can think of, I can see where each side is coming from even if I don't entirely agree with Pike. I also liked what Spock said about why he chooses not to feel anything. It got me thinking a bit about how the Vulcans as well as a lot of eastern philosophies relate attachment to suffering.
