Re: Spock: "Thrusters on full..."?

"Warp Speed" had been used to death in the original timeline. Or, it's Spock's way of saying 'slow down and enjoy the ride over warping past and missing it'.
Warp Speed, Mister Nimoy.

Apparently (he said, desperately trying to make the bump of this thread relevant by using new information), given what Pike said in ST09 and what Kirk says in the trailer, Spock Prime should've nodded and said, "Punch it."

I think "Warp speed ahead" or "Second star to the right" would have been better. Who goes on an adventure using thrusters?

I assumed it was Spock's Bendii syndrome / dementia kicking in.

It's a terrible line in an emotional moment.

Pulls you right out of the scene. Makes me snicker uncomfortably every time.
