Re: Star Trek VI: Valeris gets away with murder?

If you're interested, there's a good novel, Cast No Shadow by James Swallow, that deals with what happened to Valeris afterwards. And, yes, they locked her up and threw away the key.

Until . . . .

What the folks above said. After that bridge meld interrogation, nobody on the bridge was worried about Valeris.
Victims of mind rape are surprisingly docile afterward.

Re: Star Trek VI: Valeris gets away with murder?

Guys, Bones was making a funny. It's supposed to be a wiseass sarcastic answer, not a serious comment about being let off the hook for anything. It's pretty much understood they saved the galaxy and nobody's gonna punish them for anything they did on the way to winning.

De Kelley delivered it as he would a punchline. "We saved civilization (again) and we got away with it." Sarcasm. His follow up line was also said by Kelley as a joke:

McCOY (looking at Spock)
Well, they don't arrest people for having feelings.


When he said the "prosecute" line, people in the audience laughed. Not much, it ain't that funny, but it's in keeping with Star Trek 6's "give Bones a wisecrack every 5 minutes" scripting. Honestly, I think you guys are looking too deeply into it.

After her trial and conviction, being mindraped by Spock might be considered a form of "time served" and Valeris just walks out free.

Once again, we've saved civilization
as we know it.

BONES
And the good news is they're not
going to prosecute.

UHURA
They might as well have arrested me;
I felt like Lieutenant Saavik.
BTW. This dialog was a reference to ST:IV Voyage Home, where they saved the quadrant, but got prosecuted.
