All posters have about five minutes to edit a post without the need to identify it's been edited. The time lag is longer than that so I guess I started answering before reading the whole paragraph.

Perhaps you didn't recognize the significance of the "certain ancestor of Mr. Spock" line.
Yeah, and Tellarites might fly. OF COURSE I know who Sherlock Holmes is.

^Gee, don't get so defensive. I was just trying to figure out why you might have missed his allusion.

That deleted scene doesn't make a lot of sense. Kirk Prime is congratulating Spock Prime on being appointed ambassador....but Spock Prime was never an ambassador within Kirk Prime's lifetime.

Though never mentioned on screen, it's generally assumed (and supported in various novels), that Spock retired from Starfleet at the same time as Kirk, and became an ambassador shortly thereafter. Some folks point to the activities Spock conducted prior to the events of Star Trek VI as the beginnings of his post-Starfleet diplomatic career.

Dayton's right. There are at least several months between the end of TUC and the start of GEN, and Spock isn't seen in GEN, so it is possible Spock could've begun his formal diplomatic career in the interim.

Although nicely written, I think the Shatner scene would have undermined the new Trek crew in the same way that Riker and Troi did the NX01 crew in the Enterprise finale.
Because Nimoy's appearence didn't?

The whole point of that scene was to have the old guard "wink" at the audience one last time, while TOS was being revamped... It'd have been the perfect finale for the movie, and a good "apology" from TPTB that allowed Kirk's death in GEN in the first place.

Alas, it wasn't to be... Too bad.
