    I do agree that maybe the line could have been "plussed" to something else, but it was fine for that moment and it did the job.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, so that line didn't take me out of it, nor killed everything for me.

    As a Cardinals fan, I agree wholeheartedly.

    I'm in agreement with this. I expected him to say nothing, just smile. I would've liked something more memorable, but don't know what that would be. As it is, it's understated and I don't mind it.

    I would've loved Shatner's voiceover ending from the context of that article, but I'm very satisfied with what I got.

    I suppose they could have tried to work the first line spoken in Star Trek from "the Cage. Oddly enough its Spock.

    Spock Prime did have the final voiceover, so that is his true exit line, not "Thrusters on full."

    That was just a recording of his voiceover from Wrath of Khan.

    This thread is quite fun, but does anyone else see the dislocation between the old days of nerdish trek discussion and the new young and ruthless mainstream Star Trek audience who couldn't give shit one and never will? To them and their legacy we are leaving this ship and her new voyages, it seems.

    Indeed. The tone and intonation are different, and if memory serves, he used "one" instead of "man".

    As his last line it really would have confused all but in-the-know Trek fans. It would have made almost no sense to anyone else. What they went with is at least understandable.

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

    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.

    Let's save that for the sequel.

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