Finally, I would have also loved to see McCoy acknowledge that Rand is in the transporter room instead of just waking about complaining about engineers. He probably hasn't seen her in years!
Very good observation!
If there is one major issue I'm having with TMP it's that our protagonists act rather like automatons than living human beings.
Yes, it has been years.
Maybe he doesn't recognize her.
Well, assuming she was only around for 6 months in year 2 of the 5 year mission, it would have been 6 years. Plus they didn't put soft-glow on the transporter booth perspex.
I wish they'd done more to underscore that Janice was back. Maybe a little scene like her cameo in STIII with her and Kirk or something. I was happy with DiFalco, and I understand that Shatner was probably keen to get his wife in the movie, but giving Janice another scene would have been better IMO.
I'll admit, I'm a fan and I didn't even realise it was her until my second viewing (albeit I was only about 10 when I saw it).
