If they were going to do homages to back films, one of the things that I thought today was the very end scene when they get the New Enterprise. One of the reasons I love TUC was because of the ending scene where they beam down to Kitomere (SP?) to the end where Kirk says Second Star to the Right, and straight on till morning. I would have loved it if that line was here in this movie, after Spock asks where they want to go.
I had the same thought, actually. I was hoping for "Out there...thataway."
Instead, we got...uh, actually I don't remember. Kinda speaks to how I feel about this film in general.
Bring on the next one!
