Although it was of course a nostalgia tour, the band were electric (not just in the instrumentation sense) and joyously ripped through the old classics with genuine verve and oustanding fresh arrangements. Even if you don't like the band much, I'm very surprised to hear anyone describe a Police gig as sucking; unless they had a REALLY bad "off night". The tour was far and away the highest grossing from a couple of years back and generally picked up excellent reviews. I'll never forget walking out of the Millennium stadium amongst a sea of 80,000 odd Police fans. But each to their own; I respect your opinion.

One important fact from the TUC deleted scenes is that Klingons have no tear ducts.

I'm curious if any really hardcore fan, having gone through all the TNG spin-offs, has ever verified that for true.

The very same scene Scotty states; "I bet that Klingon b**ch killed her own father, she did not shed one bloody tear". James Doohan himself strongly objected to this dialogue as he felt it was totally out of character for Mr. Scott, and I have to agree. This scence should've remained on the cutting room floor.

Ah! Actual filmed confirmation of her Romulan heritage! Fascinating.

Kahless filled the ocean with his tears according to Worf in TNG.

Maybe one could put that down to myth and legend and then afterwards Klingon evolution did away with them!

Although I had never seen that scene about Saavik's heritage. It's always interesting because it's the question of are deleted scenes canonical? That has never been answered, in much the same way that which version of TMP (original or DC) is the canonical version. TMP would matter a great deal because in one version Vulcan clearly has planetary bodies visible in the sky and the DC doesn't.

Or are they both!

Saavik being a half Romulan explains her quite emotional (for a Vulcan) behaviour.
Vulcan's moon or sister planet seems to be pretty irrelevant. Perhaps there is one and they cloak it for fun from time to time. You gotta play some silly games, even when you are Vulcan.
