Re: Are we forgetting why Spock is a great character?
Thank you. I suppose you say his cameo in this movie was good writing too.
I complained loudly about this when I saw the movie the first four times and that Spock would attempt to contact New Vulcan instead of Earth. The fifth-time I was watching and complaining, my wife looked at me and said, "there is probably no one on Earth that he feels he can trust".
And you know what? She was fucking right. Just because you think something is bad, doesn't mean it actually is bad.
