Re: Why Nimoy NEEDED to be in STID

I disagree, I think it would have been way better if Spock didn't get to ask his future self "Hey, this Khan guy, is he evil or something?"

They should have just done a clean reboot instead of trying to connect it with the original Trek universe. Since the two timelines have nothing thematically in common besides what things are named and how they look.

Agreed, as cool as he is there was no reason to have him in the second movie.
Yea, but, if he hadn't been in the film, there would've been at least as big an outcry about "Why didn't they deal with Spock having all that foreknowledge in his head. Does he spill everything, does he keep quiet and tell them nothing? This is so such a stupid missed opportunity, why didn't they bring him back to answer that"?

Re: Why Nimoy NEEDED to be in STID

The thing is we know that Khan was some serious badassery, a dangerous man. We know his history before he was defrosted. But to the ENT crew it's a crisis, a big one, but they have no historical context. Are they going to skype Prime Spock every times some shit goes down? Doomsday machine, Tholians, Trelane steals the ship?

A .50 cal Desert Eagle slug to the gonads would have put a stop to Khan's mischief, straightaway.

Nah, Spock already had a great death scene, and nothing would have topped that. I, too, would have liked a clean break, which is why I wish they'd just done a clear unapologetic reboot from the start.
