We found him! (Spock that is)
Hey guys Alan here. Well after the aftermath that Khan left us in. Kirk felt young, found his son, Bones passed out and brand spanking new planet. That about sums it up. Oh yeah, Spock is dead too. I know that alot of people have their theory's about Trek movies. The odd/even thing. And for the most part they are right. Except for this excellent exception to that rule. Everybody talks about movie trilogies and nobody seems to include the three that are in the middle of a series these movies. Most include the 'Star Wars' trilogy (not the shitty prequels), 'The Lord of the Rings', the 'Indiana Jones', and "Back to the Future' ones, just as examples. From 'Wrath of Khan' to 'The One with the Whales' is a trilogy unto itself. It ties the franchise together and makes you want more. (least till the 5th one.) Speaking of 'Back to the Future', we are introduced to our first glimpse of "Real Klingons". At least modern ones that we have come to expect and love. I don't count the ones we saw in 'The Motionless Picture' they looked more like fish people than real Klingons. Captain Kruge is played by none other than Doc Brown himself Christopher Lloyd. In my opinion was one of the best portrayal of a Klingon until we get Lt. Worf. There were a few times that I expected him to blurt out, "Marty, we gotta go back. Back to the Future". Maybe Kirk shouldn't have kicked him down into the lava. He could have used his DeLorean to help save the whales in the next movie. I guess he wasn't thinking ahead. Kirks pussy of a son grew some balls and sacrificed himself to save Saavik and teen Spock. Speaking of Saavik. What the fuck happened to her face? She looks like a totally different person. Apparently, Kirsty Alley didn't want to do this movie. She was afraid of being typecast. Cause you know all movies of the time were putting Vulcan chicks in them. That and she was a 'Coke head' back then. Hey, was anybody else freaked out when teen Spocks face was morphing and convulsing around? Good thing Kirk got him off the planet when he did. And it just happen to be around the same age as he was when he bought the big one in the last movie...Huh? Then there was our cheery old friend McCoy. You know he is usually and crotchety old curmudgeon and having Spock's 'katra' inside him made him even more of a pain in the ass. I was kinda hoping that he and the back-ass-ward dude in the bar with the big jujube lips and feathers sticking out his head would have a good old fashioned slap fight in the bar. Na, instead they locked him up in the 'Federation Nuthouse'. Was anybody sad when the 'Newly re-fit Enterprise' got destroyed? It blew-up Real Good! If anything it sorta pissed me off. The ship that we had grown up loving was gone. (a tear runs down my cheek) I just like the new design. You think that with the new design they would have changed the destruct code. It was the code as the one they used in TOS's episode 'Let That be Your Last Battlefield'. At least it wasn't as easy to fuck up like the new 'Excelsior', just pull out a few spark-plugs and its fucked. The Captain of it was a Dick anyway. I wanted to shove his riding-crop up his ass. Did anybody catch John Larroquette as Maltz? The Klingon that Kirk promised that he would kill later. We never do see him again. Maybe he "accidentally" got thrown out an airlock. The movie leaves us with Spock getting his marbles back and McCoy, no worse for wear. I know that if I had somebody else living in my head for awhile I might miss the feeling or be a bit lonely. So that leaves us to the end. I sure hope there's no Geologic Core samples floating through space looking to fuck some shit up. I guess we'll find out next week. Until then, that's all from me...Alan
