Maybe it's in the TV version that someone posted about.

He was an asshole, lol! I mean, killing Kirk's son and teasing Kirk into actually helping him up from the cliff...I can't blame Kirk for having enough of him! lol

The above films you listed are the life link in the Star Trek movie franchise, as far as I am concerned.

Anyone ever notice how Trek's II, III and IV sort of seem like a trilogy. They do to me. II they deal with Khan are nearly destroyed and lose Spock, III they're trying everything they can to get Spock back, which includes stealing the enterprise and then IV they come back home after getting Spock back and find this probe tearing the planet apart so they go back in time. From Star Trek II it's just nonstop story, they all are back to back.

Well anyway, if Trek IV was a party, I guess Trek V was the hangover.

They are a trillogy and they need to go back to it.
It really spured trek forward and made it inspiring...

couldn't agree more! I only hope that they don't take this new crew and have them replace the original crew. From what I've heard they've signed a 3 picture deal. If they use this movie as a launching pad to start a series of movies that take place during the run of the original series then we'd be worse off than with Enterprise. I don't mind seeing how the original crew came to where they were in the original series but if we replace the original cast with this new one, it's the wrong direction in my opinion, much worse than the direction of Enterprise.

I'm excited as hell about this new movie and I think it will work, but I certainly don't want this new cast to replace the one of the original and in this new movie they seem to show the beginnings, where it all began and hopefully that's where it will stop. Where ever Star Trek goes from here, I hope it's forward into uncharted territory and I don't mean uncharted past material, they tried that with Enterprise and they failed. It's harsh I know, but I think this movie has the potential to reinvigorate the saga and pave the road for a new direction and I only hope that direction is uncharted!

I guess we could call II, III and IV the Lord of the Rings trilogy of Star Trek. They were pretty good. Livingston had a funny quote about V being the hangover, but it wasn't directly connected to IV so oh well. Meyers redeemed Trek with VI anyways. Maybe the next to Trek films after this next one, considering there will be some, will be shot sort of like a trilogy. It would be comforting I think.

Why does Spock have no beard on the Genesis planet?

I like III, but FC and Nemesis rank above it. While I say that I like III, I can't say I was thrilled with any of the movies I rank below it: I and V just disappointed and VII and IX were like TV episodes to me.
