    As an actual Star Wars quote, it's the most on-topic this thread has been in some time.

    Ah.. the 'true fan' gambit where you get to define what a 'normal fan' is or like as long as that fan likes what you like? :guffaw:

    It's all good. :techman:

    But I'm just really confused how someone who got an 'A' on a Hitchcock dissertation could miss the incredibly obvious clues in regards to Spock's character?

    I've already been called a "prick" by 2 militant Spock/Uhura shippers for giving my views so I can't be bothered any more. Nothing I say will satisfy you so it is best to just leave it and get back to Star Wars.

    I haven't missed anything. I've said that I find Spock more interesting when he isn't a traditionally romantic hero, but an asexual man of logic and science as those are rarer in TV/film. You then bought up rare examples of him acting romantic on the old show, which I don't like either. Then you called me a prick.

    What is the definition of a 'normal fan', Captain Mike?

    Eh? How can you get an A on a dissertation? I can't think of any UK Universities that use the A-F standard because of AQA guidance.

    Well the normal movie goer gave much more of a shit about this film, compared to any previous ones.

    Didn't take long to drive that stake through the thread's heart.
