Thank you Jeyl!!!
Holy (profanity in profusion)!
What the (more profanity) were they thinking?!?!
This isn't TWOK... this is a new movie. Nimoy states in an interview or commentary at some point that TWOK is about strong emotions, particularly friendship and anger. It is supposed to be a 'hot' film. Now it appears to have been whitewashed, or soaked in cool ranch dressing.
So one last bit of reactionary melodrama... is that space lab regula one or V'Ger? Didn't we just have a grey and blue movie in TMP?
