The one deleted scene I miss from TUC is one that not very many people remember.

It was in the theatrical release in Dec. '91-whenever, but Berman had it dropped from all home video releases. As the Enterprise pulls away from Spacedock, there is a brief, second or two shot of Kirk saying "I'm still the Captain" and smiling. I want to see this scene again.
Is this a joke I'm not getting?

He said something like that in "The Trouble With Tribbles" after a bunch of them fell on him, but there's nothing in the TUC scripts indicating a line like that.

Not to mention that Rick Berman had nothing to do with "The Undiscovered Country"... so he'd have hard time getting a line pulled from it.

But - but - Berman is responsible for everything that has ever gone wrong in the world!! His evil powers know no bounds!

Re: ST VI deleted scene (not really, but )

Ridicule me all you like. It doesn't change the fact that I saw TUC in theaters twice in '91-'92, and the line was there both times. Yet, there is no evidence of it ever existing in published scripts of the film, or in any video release, all of which would have been overseen by Rick Berman in his position of Head of All Things Star Trek during that era.

You dreamed it.

Can you imagine the expense and red tape required to recall all prints of the film to remove said line... not to mention getting Dr Pulaski to erase our memories?

There were lines about being a captain towards the end, but they were about Sulu:

BONES
By God, that's a big ship.

SCOTTY
Not so big as her Captain, I think.
The fifth draft, still with Saavik instead of Valeris, has this early scene:

LT. SAAVIK
Aye, sir.

KIRK
Plot a course for Kronos, Lieutenant.

LT. SAAVIK
(startled)

Kronos, sir?

KIRK
I'm still in the chair, Lieutenant.

LT. SAAVIK
Aye, sir.

Other reactions. Kirk has taken command.

Calm down. No one is ridiculing you. The Tal Shiar would like to have word, however.

None of that would have been overseen by Rick Berman, or even involved with him at all in any way. Of course you don't have to take my word for it, you could actually investigate this for yourself.

But then again this is an internet message board, don't let pesky little things like facts get in the way of your opinion!

Re: ST VI deleted scene (not really, but )

In the film I saw, both times I saw it, this scene:

30 INT. BRIDGE, USS ENTERPRISE - NIGHT 30

Kirk sits comfortably with a smile on his face.

KIRK
(continuing)
Lieutenant...

Saavik faces him.

KIRK
(continuing)
... I don't care if I'm senile. If I sit in this
chair and give the word you jump.

Spock watches.

LT. SAAVIK
Aye, sir.

KIRK
Plot a course for Kronos, Lieutenant.

LT. SAAVIK
(startled)
Kronos, sir?

KIRK
I'm still in the chair, Lieutenant.

LT. SAAVIK
Aye, sir.

--was replaced with Kirk giving his little smile and saying "I'm still the Captain." And I'm not the only one to remember it. I've spoken with others who remember the same sequence.

You saw Saavik? Or Valeris? (Or Val'eris, as she was scripted)?

Don't be disingenuous, it's unbecoming. If you would care to read the last part of my post, I said the scene was replaced with a two-second shot of Kirk, saying "I'm still the Captain." That's all. Nothing else. No other part of the shot, or scene. And Indysolo, where this scene is in Therin's posted link, scene 30, is where I saw it. And I'm not the only one that did. I just seem to be the only one that remembers it anymore.
