    Why would you want this to happen?
    The've just been on the ship 5 minutes and you want them dead or on other ships? We've seen the crew on 2 missions and that needs a shakeup?
    You know I saw Chekov in Engineering and Scotty gone and I didn't like it one bit.

    He's not writing Star Wars, nor are Orci, Kurtzman or Lindelof.

    :techman: Exactly.

    Now, I don't know this (have to browse through the TNG sections to find out), but is it yet equally controversial and being similarly commented and viewed as Pike's line?

    That's nothing. No gravitas. The word "punch" is just another word like the word "clear". You have to end your command with "punch it" not squash it into the middle of a sentence. You don't even want any bits of sentence in front of it, "punch it" should be a stand alone.

    I think Khan showed plenty of madness at the end, trying to aim the falling Vengeance at Starfleet HQ, and in what we were told of his backstory (goals including the extermination of those not genetically enhanced).

    My thought was Kirk going insane, a la the other captains in TOS, no doubt culminating in an "Amok Time" style fight with Spock...

    I can get over the villian being kahn. but what if they make a directors cut of the film that cuts off at least where spock screams kahhn. To me that would make the film so much better.

    Would the film have lost anything valuable had the villain been John Harrison, and NOT Khan?

    No.

    Glad to see that other folk are catching on, though. No sense wasting time and energy, after all.

    For what it's worth, was Harrison ever identified as Khan Noonien Singh or just Khan?

    Yes, he was. By Spock Prime.

    He called himself Khan. Spock Prime referred to him (or rather to Khan Prime) as Khan Noonien Singh. Too bad that nuSpock didn't show him a picture of nuKhan just for identification's sake.

    Thanks. So, Spock showed Spock Prime saw a picture, I assume?

    I suppose there were people who were disappointed that Spock Prime didn't say, "No, I don't recognize him. That's not the Khan I knew. He's too thin and pasty. Someday, I'll tell you about the real brute we faced. In fact, if you have an hour, I'll do it now. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...."

    No, Spock said "did you ever encounter a man named Khan?" or something along those lines.

    And about giacchino soundtrack in STID? What is your opinion? Better? Worst?
    I really enjoyed Michael Giacchino's work on the Star Trek (2009) score.
