Re: News about early 2014 schedule
So I guess Saavik would've been qualified to run the sciences station in STII.
Not necessarily. More than twelve years passed between TMP and TWOK. The Enterprise
design was new in 2273, but other ships used similar systems by 2285. It's likely she'd have been able to use the station properly. After all, we see Chekov there in TSFS. And he was stupid.
