I honestly don't think so. Saavik had far more appreciation and experience with Spock than Valeris ever did. Saavik is also far more honest. She wouldn't betray Spock like Valeris did, which is why Roddenberry didn't think it a good idea to have Saavik be a conspirator. He was right. I don't think Saavik would have done all she did with Spock on Genesis only to betray him on Enterprise
