Wrath of Khan is actually a bit cheesy
They should have kept the title Star Trek: The Vengeance of Khan. Personally I think it sounds better.

I always thought TFF was a cheesy title because it's just quoting from the opening narration.
What's your opinion of titling an episode These Are The Voyages?

Re: about the IV title

As a show finale I find it a decent enough title...but I wish it hadn't been applied to the episode in particular, especially since Archer never actually used that line. I could see it working better as a replacement title for AGT. Not so much WYLB and certainly not Endgame. It might have been perfect if TOS had had a proper finale.

I suppose as an agnostic I may also be offended that "God" is "The Final Frontier"...and it probably doesn't help that "God" is in fact nothing of the kind in the course of the film.

Not to mention "Strange New World," "Civilization," "Where No Man Has Gone Before," and "Where No One Has Gone Before."

Clearly we need movies titled "Seek Out New Life" and "Boldly Go."

Re: about the IV title

everytime someone says zombie I think of Spock. And that theory of him ponfarring Saavik. And that cut scene of her pregnant in IV.

V should have been about the zombie's child.

Or something.

Re: about the IV title

Don't forget about Spock's kid with Zarabeth on Sarpedon. He has lots of kids that don't exist. Leila Kalomi probably had a bundle of Vulcan joy we don't know about, too.

That could explain Spock's upcoming appearance on the Maury Show.

Err, probably not...

LEILA: I love you. I said that six years ago, and I can't seem to stop repeating myself. On Earth, you couldn't give anything of yourself. You couldn't even put your arms around me. We couldn't have anything together there.
(emphasis added)

Oh, wait... unless you mean that something happened while Spock was under the spores' influence. Hmm, in that case it's possible they got more intimately involved than '60s TV was allowed to admit. However, Enterprise suggested that Vulcan-human hybridization would require some medical/genetic intervention (which is in keeping with what was claimed in Roddenberry's Inside Star Trek record album from the '70s). Not to mention that there is such a thing as birth control.

Oh, Christopher, you're being much too serious with my flip little post. You are correct, of course, but I was thinking of the "spores" influence and Capt. Kirk's little jab about having the gall to make love to that girl. He was probably thinking, damn you Spock, that's my job!

Which reflects how language has evolved since the '60s. At the time, and going back to the 19th century, "making love" had a broader meaning than it does today; it could be used as a euphemism for sex, but it referred more broadly to the overall process of courting and romancing someone -- even just flirting with or sweet-talking someone. (Cf. Danny Kaye's The Court Jester, for example.) You often hear characters in old TV shows and movies talk about "making love" even when any mention of sex was absolutely banned by the censors (for instance, in I Love Lucy, where they weren't even allowed to say the word "pregnant").

http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/...p/t-63110.html

So Kirk's line wasn't meant to indicate that Spock had had sex with Leila -- there's no way NBC's censors would've allowed such an assertion to get on the air. It just meant that he was being generally romantic and affectionate toward her.
