Re: What does everyone know about Spock Prime? [probably spoilers]

In TOS getting information out of a computer was a cool sci fi thing. Now everyone does it and watching it is like watching electricity.

Re: What does everyone know about Spock Prime? [probably spoilers]

actually kahn and admiral Marcus already told kirk all about who kahn was. so spock was contacting spock prime just to ask how dangerous khan was and if he could be trusted.

I was surprised that no one did historical research using the ship's computers. I think this was particularly important for this film where there was a character about whom we had two conflicting accounts of his history and his motivations.
"Space Seed" made it pretty clear that records from that era were sketchy at best.
Still Space Seed does feature a picture of Khan from the 1990s. Presumably such a picture must still be in the database, or did Nero's arrival erase photographs from the 1990s?
It's possible that Section 31 suppressed information about Khan once Marcus defrosted and recruited him, to prevent anyone recognizing him or researching his weaknesses.

Re: What does everyone know about Spock Prime? [probably spoilers]

They kept people from recognizing him by bleaching, dying and body modding him out the wazoo. I think his bone structure is similar to Montalban's though, it's definitely not a reach.

The writers chose to do the Spock Prime phone call instead. Good choice.
Absolutely, the right choice.

Yeah,I'd rather see Nimoy than see someone read off a computer screen.

I can't wait until they consult him again in another movie.

Kirk: "Hey, Spock! Did you ever have your brain stolen at one point in your life? How did we get you out of THAT one?"

Why would they consult the historic library?

They know the frozen guy is 300 years old but that's it.

They don't have the Botany Bay to clue them in nor have a history buff on board who obsesses about Khan .

nuSpock: "During the course of your voyages did your Enterprise ever encounter a gigantic energy cloud that headed straight towards Earth at high warp and destroyed every vessel that tried to intercept and study it?"

Spock Prime: "Uh, yeah....amusing thing about all that.

Ummm....

Good luck! Let me know how it all turns out!"

Re: What does everyone know about Spock Prime? [probably spoilers]

I'm thinking NuSpock used up his world saving favours with Prime Spock and he knows it. But I'm also thinking he may consult him on his DRAMATIC PON FARR DRAMA THINGIE which threatens to challenge and detonate his loooove.

Problem is, it'll get a bit silly after a while. "I made a solemn vow never to tell you of future events which I will break just this once." It loses its significance the second time he does it.

I was assuming this as I was watching the film. Marcus wouldn't want anyone finding out anything about Khan once he had him on board as an operative.

teacake's new avatar is bound to induce the pon farr and more than a few blood fevers over in the Voyager forum.

Re: What does everyone know about Spock Prime? [probably spoilers]

I would think that with Starfleet knowing of his existence, he would be considered classified, and possibly held deep within a Section 31 facility being questioned for years on end.
