I think TUC has some horrible l dialogue. Meyer packed it as full of "aren't i clever" references as he could. The Shakespeare, only Nixon could go to China, the Sherlock Holmes reference and the don't wait for the translation answer me now were all self indulgent intellectual tripe. Also the scenes where multiple actors were present was like watching a rehearsed song with many artists singing. Scotty said this line, then Chekov picked it up, then uhura, them McCoy then spock and around again. It was as if they were trying to make up for 25 years of 3 characters getting 90% of the dialogue in 2 hours and it sounded corny and contrived.
