Without question Kirstie Alley, I absolutely Hated Robin Curtis' Saavik.
One line, "Captain, David is dead." Ice cold bitch.
Heck, that's why I like her. It's how I'd imagine a Vulcan would react.

Re: The best Saavik?

As a portrayal of a Vulcan, Curtis' performance is light years ahead of the annoyingly emotive Vulcans from Enterprise. I prefer Alley because she was doing a half-Romulan and that's what I wanted to see at the time. Emotional Vulcans are a dime-a-dozen these days, I'd certainly prefer Curtis to them. I rather like Blalock's brittle performance because at least she looked like she was trying to remain in control but all the other Vulcans seemed irritated, enraged, or panicky much of the time as if it was normal.

In 1991 Robin Curtis played, Carol Pulaki on the day time soap General Hospital. Robin Curtis is best know for playing Lt. Saavik in Star Trek.

Yes, the line is chilling, but I also voted for Robin Curtis, I thought she really did that character well, and the contrast of having a stark Vulcan in some of those scenes added to their intensity.
