When they introduced Saavik in TWOK it seemed like they intended her to be a core member of the cast.
Yes. The idea, at least tentatively, was to gradually phase out the original, aging cast and phase in a "next generation," so to speak, of younger leads. But instead nostalgia won out, every change the movies tried to make was undone within two movies, and the TOS cast was stuck in a rut for the rest of their careers rather than having any kind of plausible career or personal advancement.
Yeah. The DC comics assumption that she would take over Spock's old position was actually a pretty good one, I thought.
