OK since we've gone off track here, has anyone worked out the pip rank thing in STID?
I'm still confused.
In regards to the Pine Kirk and Shatner Kirk, if I had looked at Scotty in STVI and none of the other movies I probably would have guessed that they had recast him from TOS. I think he looks quite different from his younger days.
All the other member of the cast are readily recognisable though.
