And will he do that for every villain?
He won't because it won't make for an interesting movie. With PrimeSpock solving every problem.
How did Spock Prime solve the problem in this film?

Re: Do you like the Spock Prime "Phone a friend" scene?

Even if you accept that there was no "logical" reason for NewSpock to contact PrimeSpock...and I think it was logical for no other reason than that it couldn't possibly make anything worse...this would hardly be the first time something was done in Trek that didn't hold up under scrutiny, and at least I and others found it entertaining in any case.

He didn't solve 'the problem'. Kirk and Spock and Scotty and Chekov did because they were there. He just reassured nuSpock was he was doing the right thing IMO - which helps.

Because this is the film world and not the real world I don't think they're going to get hints from PrimeSpock and save Nancy Crater pr the miners from the Horta or the guys from the Gorgon settlement for example.
Its just not going to be interesting enough for a movie when we know whats going to happen.

Too extreme? Good thing I didn't ask "Love it" or "Hate it" or you'd be reporting me to a mod.
Er, what ? I simply mean there is no middle ground.
