one thing that irks me about STIII, why is it that the enterprise can "detect" a cloaked bird of prey on a short range scan but cant see that grissom is no where to be found?
I don't think they detected it on scan while it was cloaked, Chekov merely caught a glimpse of it before it cloaked.

They identified it visually due to the distortion the cloak gave off.

Re: Everytime I watch TWOK/TSFS...

I'm reminded of something else too. In the space of a few hours, Spock learned how to walk, have sex, and even overpower a Klingon officer - with little or no reference and a completely blank mind.

Sure, people can pick things up pretty fast, but this is verging on ridiculous!

Re: Everytime I watch TWOK/TSFS...

With all the talk of "continuity errors", why has nobody mentioned Saavik's COMPLETELY (not to mention better) different appearance from one film to the next??

That's called recasting.

I know, but we're nitpicking continuity errors here, so....

You would have thought that Starfleet would have maintained a heavy military presence in the sector, to prevent people who "shouldn't be there", being there...

I swear that it's going to get to the point where I re-write the entire 2285 trilogy, just to factor in common sense.

I reckon I could tell a better overall story, hell I reckon everybody posting in this thread could tell a better overall story. Think about it as modding a video game...

Consult the Project Rho Web site, and begin with the page on "cloaking devices."

After that, there is excellent material on radiation, weapons, FTL, etc, but sadly nothing about McGuffin Casket Latches. For that, one must turn to the TV Tropes Wiki.

While I don't agree that Robin Curtis was better than Kirstie Alley, here is my explanation for the change:

With a little surgical help, Saavik underwent the ancient "Ponn-Face" ritual.
