Maybe it was the last order given by Kirk (maybe the last time that Spock saw him 'alive' before going onto the Enterprise B?)

Re: "Thrusters on full" ~Spock

I must admit, it felt weird to me, too.

It just felt wrong for Spock because, as a science officer, he had nothing to do with propulsion and maneuvering. I would have preferred silence or the hint of a wry smile.


Or, how about a Kosh line,


"And so it begins...."


Yeah.

That'd be PERFECT.

I liked it. And snickered as I gave it a dirty interpretation. But I liked it just fine before that, too.

It was Spock basically admiring the ability of Kirk to get the job done by throwing the rule book out the airlock and giving it few phaser blasts.

Throughout the whole movie it had been bugging him what Pike could have said other than "punch it" that the fans wouldn't have considered too 'Star Warsy'. In the closing moments it finally came to him.

I thought it was perfect. He was very quietly noting to himself that this Kirk ~is~ his Kirk. And the grand adventure is just beginning.

All out effort, pedel to the metal, balls to the wall, that was and is Kirk.

I said it in another thread: somehow I thought the line was a mirror of McCoy's line in TVH: "I don't know if you got the whole picture but he's not exactly working on all thrusters."
As did I. If not an actual reference to that line, but a reference to the fact that is the sort of thing that these future space people have been shown to say in the past.

"second star to the right, and straight on 'till morning."

*Shrug* Kirk's last command line... maybe?

This made me think that of all the hell the black-hole brought Spock, one bright spot must have been seeing Kirk again, as he knew him as a young man.

yep, and Nimoy struck just the right note. he showed the effect the meeting with young Kirk had on Prime Spock to great effect. he almost gave an emotional scene that would have brought the house down

Well, there's not much that can beat thinking he killed him, I guess.
