I recently chanced once again upon the story of how Harve Bennett convinced Leonard Nimoy to come back for Star Trek II by offering him the opportunity to die in the first 3rd of the movie, like Janet Leigh in "Psycho." But, as we all know, the story leaked out (thank you, Gene), and they had to rework it to the Kobayashi Maru red-herring and the climactic death scene. So, when I heard that story this time, it got me thinking. At the time Harve made that pitch, the story, or at least whatever event culminated in Spock's death, must have been fairly different. And I know there are old rough draft scripts floating around of various movies (like the drafts of "Batman" and "Batman Returns" with Robin in them, or the darker early version of "The Truman Show"); it would be interesting to see the early version of STII where Spock died in the first part of the movie. Does anyone know whether such a script, or even just a premise detailing the storyline at that phase of production, exists?
