Why would such a meaningless line of dialogue be cut from the film? It doesn't save more than a few seconds of time.

There are examples of small meaningless cuts from films all the time.

It's fun watching people shit themselves whenever someone suggests a scene of this nature that they didn't see themselves.

It couldn't possibly have happened!

^I don't really care either way. I just think it's funny that the direction of the thread has completely changed because of it.

Eh, I'm pretty sure nobody is shitting themselves so far...

Memories are a really tricky thing, especially 20-something year old ones, and these kinds of claims are actually ridiculously common.

Of course it's possible that some random guy on the internet got to see this secret extra scene that mysteriously nobody else in the world remembers... but I wouldn't put money on it.

The fact that FormerLurker refuses to even acknowledge the possibility of his memory being faulty makes the whole thing even more suspect.

My problem with his anecdote is that the scene he is so sure that he remembers seeing onscreen had already been altered in later versions of the script (ie. with Val'eris, as it was originally spelt).

Re: ST VI deleted scene (not really, but )

I've seen vintage prints of this movie and there were no splices at this moment in either 35mm or 70mm prints, and I know that Paramount is not going to make new 70mm prints, suggesting the line was never there.

Also, and I hate to pull out the big guns, I edited the expanded soundtrack album and had access to all sorts of paperwork and nothing indicated this line. On top of that, the music composed for the scene (which by your account would have been at the end of "Clear All Moorings") lines up perfectly with the scene as it is presented on home video. If something had been cut, this wouldn't be the case.
