Where was Sulu's phaser on the drilling platform?
All he carried was his sword. Why not a phaser?

Good question.

He wanted to show off his swordmanship

It'll be on the DVD's list of deleted scenes...

It could have fallen out when he "landed" underneath the platform or on his way to the top of the platform and we just didn't see it.

I-Am-Zim 06-02-2009 12:16 PM

Or it could have been part of the contrived plot to tie Sulu's TOS era fencing skills to the new movie. That's basically it. And like my wife loves to tell me, it's just a movie. You're not supposed to ask those questions.

he lost it in the fight, there was a quick cut shot of Sulus phaser going diving with no parachute..

Just like the PSI2000 virus was contrived to allow him to display his sword skills in TOS originally?

So they make a referrence to "The Naked Time" and the old-schoolers complain. The usual disclaimer is still true: some people just cannot be satisfied, so don't even try. :D

Yeah. We're just a bunch of old fuddie duddies.:001_tongue:
