You are correct NCC. The entire reference to "unification" and Spock going to Romulas was a big mistake. They should have just said Kirk had recorded a "just in case" last message to Spock to be delivered upon his death. Simple, but Noooooo, these writers TRY to get all Trekkie and make it complicated, then they "F" it up!
