Re: If VI had featured Saavik instead of Valeris as the traitor
^Yeah, great points. It's a shame Saavik's Romulan heritage never made it into the film, because it does help to show why she was Spock's protege. They were alike, both aspiring to live and be treated as Vulcans, yet struggling with their own self-identity and heritage.
She bought her first new car and you hit her with a drunk driver. What, is that supposed to be funny?
