Re: ST VI:TUC Out of character for McCoy?

-Spock graphically mind rapes Valaris in the middle of the bridge, and everyone just watches.
It wasn't rape it was the telepathic equivalent of a body cavity search to acquire important information. If Valaris had to be forcibly restrained and strip searched to get that information you wouldn't be calling that rape. If Spock was digging around inside her mind for his own perverse gratification like in the TNG episode "Violations" then you could be justified in calling it rape.

I understand why some would've liked the Valeris character to have actually been Saavik (I always thought this was simply because the actress wasn't available, or is that not the case?)
Kirstie Alley was asked, but declined.

Nicholas Meyer did not want to pursue Robin Curtis and her agent was never contacted.

Meyer went with his original choice for Saavik: Kim Cattrall. She didn't want to be the third actress to play that character, so they created a new one. She suggested Eris as a name and designed the hairstyle and the hairband. Meyer added the Val' prefix to the character's name. The apostrophe was gone by the final draft.

The thing with Alley was that she had become a star on Cheers, and with Star Trek VI already being on a ludicrously tight budget, they just couldn't afford her.
