If you didn't know ST2, you'd just see him cockily eating the apple and cheating.

Knowing Trek II, it kind of forshadows nicely. I loved the reveal of who programmed the test as well

The pits themselves were reminiscant of Star Trek IV's opening scenes.

Exactly. I want to say it was from an early show and he and Kirk were scrambling around on rocks with phasers in hand. Maybe I'm just making that up in my mind, though.

Too, I think of all the shots in the movie, Quinto looks the most, and amazingly so, like Nimoy in that one.

This is a great point, Big D. Picard was also a hot headed skirt chaser, it seems when he was a youth. Guess that's the kind of moxie it takes to command the Enterprise! (Although that one capt of Enterprise-B in "Generations" seemed like a wuss!)

Kobyashi Maru test was fantastic.

Pine first Kirk-like moment

I'm assuming he was crouching down so that when he 'landed' he would be more stable in the very unstable landscape. That makes sense to me, and makes the scene more real- a nice bit of realistic good sense.

Agreed with Kiko Kea - they knew Vulcan was geologically unstable because of Nero's drill, and the growing black hole could only make it harder to keep your footing.
