Anyone else think that Shatner's Kirk got better lines?
From the article:
In a low, menacing voice, he says, “I was authorized to end you. And the only reason why you are still alive is because I am allowing it.”
His quiet fury here is reminiscent of a previous encounter between the original versions of Kirk and Khan:
“Kirk … You’re still alive, my old friend.”
“Still … old … ‘friend.’ You’ve managed to kill everyone else, but like a poor marksman, you keep missing the target!”
