The plot of TSFS hinges not on one or two moments when someone acts unaccountably dullwitted for a moment - nothing significant in the movie can move forward as it does except for the fact that every character other than the continuing cast of Star Trek (counting Sarek, I suppose) - behaves stupidly at just about every turn. The movie is a nearly flawless example of an Idiot Plot
turned on its head - the heroes succeed at the end only because their competition and antagonists are too foolish to see and do the obvious.
Nice to know I wasn't the only one thinking that. God, that movie was awful.
