  2. Loved this movie. It delivered everything Trek fandom wanted to achieve back in the period where Trek TOS was off air 1969-79 prior to ST:TMP – Kirk/Spock friendship; prime directive/loyalty to colleagues; big battles.


  3. I was sad I wasn’t able to do this episode because I had SO many things to say. 🙂 I basically think I’m at least half Vulcan. I too, thought that it was a fantastic answer to my fandom prayers. They did so well blending old visual concepts with knew plot and new takes on the characters we know and love. Loooveeeedd it.
