    I guess I was never able to get past the whole El Capitan scene. The Observation Room scenes were not bad. I also loved that set. I always wished Meyer was able to use that set in TUC.

    I actually sort of liked Scotty spouting a little technobabble. TNG always made everyone seem like they were more intelligent then the original series (I don't think that was intent), this was Scotty's chance to prove they could be Mr Smarty Pants in the 23rd century too. So take that 24th century :razz:

    As previously documented in other TrekBBS threads, Nimoy and Kelley opted out leaving Doohan and Koenig to take their places (eh, it's a paycheck) and inherited some of their lines, hence the technobabble for Scott and medical stuff for Chekov.

    The characters may have been slightly different since they are all time-divergent alternate versions which Picard creates when he corrupts the time stream by his future self in the next movie, First Contact. (follow that circle illogic):wtf:

    The horses were great, too, and deserved equal billing for that scene. As an animal lover, I liked that the movie had horses, cats and dogs. I remember Shatner used his own horses for the scene, and the horse walk-around and side-walking during their dialog was Shatner showing off how good an equestrian he was in real life. Kirk one-ups Picard.

    ^^^But Spock didn't spout technobabble the way Moore and Braga wrote it. It would have been out of character even for him.

    Agreed. I was mainly pointing out the script writers intentions for Spock and McCoy, but got Scott and Chekov. :lol:

    To be different, I guess, I'll say Spock in TMP. Outside of all the philosophical weight of it, and even though he's kind of been around in this movie, Spock's been holding back, up til now.

    The Spock from the TV show finally returns and while it hints at things to come story-wise in TMP, its kind of been like TSFS, in that Spock's near and yet so far. It ups the interest level, when they're wandering the V'GER amphitheater, later. Imagine Kholinar Spock in those moments. Instead, TOS is back as the main three team up to save earth, and just under the wire, as usual.

    "Klingon bastard! You killed my son!"
    Just an amazing delivery by Shatner. He made me feel his pain, and grief.

    It would seem Saavik should've been the logical choice to be killed since Alley wasn't returning; I didn't like Curtis' portrayal of the character at all, but I was never a fan of III and all of the forced motivations of the movie.

    Dining on Ashes in TUC is definitely my favorite scene out of that bunch. It's Kirk and Spock, and Shatner and Nimoy, together and having a heart to heart one last time. Nimoy said that the multiple levels to the scene got to him, too.

    And yeah, the beginning of GEN is pretty weak, mainly because the writers couldn't shake their TNG technobabble habits to write for a different kind of Star Trek, and because they didn't bother filing off the serial numbers on dialogue they obviously wrote for Spock and Bones. "I have a theory" / "I thought you might" is a total Spock/Kirk exchange, "You and you, you're both nurses" is total Bones McCoy dialogue, and Scotty was never one to talk about creating a 3.4 second tachyon pulse by channeling the whatever through the main deflector dish, or whatever crap they had him say. Scotty said stuff like, "I've got her lit up like a Christmas tree, so don't give me too many bumps!" Scotty wasn't a guy to talk about how he did stuff. He just did it.
