Re: If VI had featured Saavik instead of Valeris as the traitor

Since Kirstie Alley was out of the film's price range, Nick Meyer should have just had Robin Curtis reprise the role and been done with it.
From what I recall Meyer didn't care for Curtis as Saavik at all. So that was never an option for him.
That's a shame. He probably could have gotten a better performance out of Curtis, perhaps had her play it a little more emotional. And the audience's familiarity with her would have made her betrayal even stronger.

The road not taken and all that...
