Re: Bad Trek You Just Can't Stop Talking About

TAtV riles me up something fierce. But that's only in describing it to people, because no one who's seen it ever defends it.

Whenever someone brings up STVI, I'm compelled to point out how horribly it treats the characters (Uhura doesn't know Klingon, Bones doesn't know Klingon anatomy, Kirk is suddenly a racist and they play the mind meld scene as if Spock is mind-raping a helpless, screaming Valaris in the middle of the bridge while the crew just stands around watching). Oops, I did it again...
To be fair, the idea that Uhura is supposed to be some sort of super-linguist who has mastered multiple alien languages appears nowhere in the original series--where she seemed to be relying on the Universal Translator just as much as anybody else.

I don't recall her ever speaking fluent Klingon or Romulan on TOS . . .
