Awesome! I love that era! Is Saavik aboard ship?
I'm afraid not. We don't see Saavik in the movies after that brief bit in TVH and I didn't really want to have to explain where she's been or why she's back--and I didn't want to step on the toes of whatever books or comics might have already dealt with these issues.
Saavik seemed like a distraction to the story I wanted to tell, which is more about an older, more mature Kirk. (My other agenda, btw, the way is to focus on Chekov a bit, since I've never really done much with him before.)
