I just watched that the other day as well!
II is probably still my all-time favorite Star Trek movie. See, I never watched the newer generations of Star Trek that much and I grew up watching the reruns of the original show. They have a special place in my heart. :)
I watched TNG and enjoyed that, but none of the others caught my interest. Watching Kahn made me REALLY want to purchase the TV series.
That would be such an awesome collection to have. You could pop that in any day and be sure to get a smile going. :)
Can I be extra-geeky and note that you're mixing series here? *g*
The editor in me, however, would like to point out that the phrase "the Genesis Cave of the Kobayashi Maru" makes it sound like the Kobayashi Maru belongs to the Genesis Cave.
I reworded that damned sentence three times. It's early. Don't pick on me.
An excellent conversion. Well done! :)
I love the original series, it's my all time favourite. It took me a long time to accept Next Gen but I did finally get into and enjoy it. But nothing, nothing beats Classic ST.
My 12 year old daughter was converted to the scifi side last year. I think that she looks forward to scifi Friday as much as we do. Now to work on the 7 year old. :)
Well done, thou good and faithful servant.
II and IV are IMHO the best of hte OLD star trek movies, with VI being a close 3rd. You can take 1 and 5 and flush them..they're useless.
'Xacly. Three's pretty bad, but I still like it for its better moments. 5 is a disaster.
Ya know what I hate about 3 the most? The fact that Kirsty Alley isn't in it. I mean, I just wish there was some continuity there. In reality, lately I'm finding I can't watch 2 without popping 3 in right after it. Just to continue the story.
And of course, the reference back in #6
where Spock says to Scotty "I've been dead before." Hehehe..its like completing a circle.
The Wrath of Kahn owns all. XD
So what did she think of Montelban's plastic chest?
It wasn't plastic, it was Corinthian Leather :)
You know, I've never really noticed it that much myself. I think she didn't, either.
Untrue, according to the DVD. And I believe 'em.
As do I. That was no fake.
Suckers! (Actually I have no idea if it's true, I just find the whole concept hilarious. And if it was his real chest, it was very well oiled.)
Classic Trek all the way! :)
Too bad that III isn't exactly the best follow up. But still, I bet she'd really enjoy IV too. People always like the whales. :)
I wish there had been more Star Trek movies as well crafted as Wrath of Khan. I still love to watch it myself. I'm going to have to get it on DVD someday.
Despite the fact that I've only ever watched it once, me and one my housemates have started responding to any given annoying situation by raising our hand to the sky and screaming "Kaaaaaaaahhhhnnn!!"
Yeah, it's in regular use around here, too.

and she'll thank you for star trek ii BUT...
...she is going to watch III now, like you said, and i think we all know that's just not going to turn out well for anyone involved. :)

Re: and she'll thank you for star trek ii BUT...
Yeah, but you have to get through it to get to IV. Which we did. She didn't hate it, but there definitely wasn't the same level of rapt attention.
So, based on the fact that Spock didn't stay dead, can I assume that Data won't stay dead, either?
Oh, please. He was already not dead by the end of the movie - his prototype just needed tweaking. That disgusted me.
I am confused. B4 is so not Data.
No, but he can be reprogrammed to BE Data. I'd say "just you wait," but the franchise is pretty much dead.
God! I remember the day that I, six-or-seven-year-old avowed Trek-disdainer, was shown the same movie by an older brother. With much the same reaction. "But it's SPOCK! He's . . . really dead? *sadface*"
