Oy vei So, been readin' the threads about STVI:TUC lately, and there's NO WAY I'm jumping into that crapfest. I just ironed this shirt, thankyouverymuch. However, I did want to bring up my only real complaint about TUC, and - notwithstanding all of the good arguments put up by my fellow posters - the only thing that really takes me out of the movie. And for the record, I really like TUC, and so does my lass - a non-Trekker (but then again, she also thought TFF was great fun, bless her!) Okay, so I can handle the bigotry. I really can - never bothered me. I can handle Uhura not knowing Klingon(ese), because... well, I'm sure I can Treksplain it somehow. (Klingon empire not really on the radar when she was in Academy training, and the E's mission in deep space didn't necessitate local-boundary languages? Just a thought). But what really gets me is McCoy. Now I LOVE McCoy. One of my absolute favorite characters, simply because he's always honorable, upstanding, and supremely confident. But his line "Jim, I don't even know his anatomy!" REALLY pisses me off. Doesn't know his anatomy? What was it, 27 years as CMO & Ship's Surgeon? Not knowing Klingon is an operational hazard for Uhura. Not knowing their medical information is a criminal offense for a CMO. Really. This is just nuts, and makes me hate McCoy eveery time he says it. Later, at the trial when Chang challanges McCoy as having been "incompetent," he is ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. Assassination and conspiracy aside, McCoy should have been cashiered out of Starfleet on the eve of his retirement for his criminal negligence and absolutely unforgivable unpreparedness and is - personally and circumstantially - responsible for the death of the Klingon Chancellor. Thoughts? Cheers, -Moe!
