I Always Shall Be Your Friend: The Kirk/Spock Ship is Back!

Any fan of Sci-Fi or just a fan of Star Trek knows about them. And we've all been shipping them even before Shipping was a thing. Kirk and Spock have stolen our hearts again and again, not to mention how they ripped them out in THAT scene in Star Trek II. Well, it 's nice to see the return of the dynamic between Kirk and his ONLY science officer in the above clip.  I mean the Enterprise's Science officer, that's what we were arguing about here wasn't it?

Are you excited for this new Star Trek II? Do you think Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto have the same kind of chemistry as Spock and Kirk Prime? And what do you think will be the fate of the perky blond that literally places herself between the two?

I've enjoyed this reincarnation of my favorite sci-fi duo very much. I think they have great chemestry, though in a different way than the Prime ones did. As for that cheeckie blond, she's obviously dead meat! ;)

I enjoy the new versions, but for different reasons. I think that the actual friendship between Shatner and Nemoy bled into their roles which really helped sell the bond between the respective characters. Especially in the movies. Your right that these two have a different kind of bond. I'm most curious to see if JJ Abrams tries to recrate the scene from Kahn. I just don't know if they will be able to pull it off with the same kind of gravity.

I'm very excited about this movie! But it's going to have to wait until I finish my book. I'm also looking forward to Iron Man 3. :)

The current incarnation of Kirk/Spock is nothing like the original. Shatner and Nemoy just had IT together. I think the fact that this version of Kirk and Spock have gotten off to such a different beginning just makes it impossible for them to have that kind of chemistry together (so far). Now if they make a few more movies together then maybe they'll get close to the level (Sorry. No one can replace the originals). Still, I waited a whole two years before I saw the first reboot (I couldn't bring myself as a loyal Star Trek fan to even consider watching a reboot of my beloved series). I liked it and I'm sure I'll like this one too.

And yeah, I actually cried when I realized Spock was dying in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. That movie was just hitting on all cylinders. Kirk has a long lost son (surprised he only had one out there considering how he slept with a different chick every, Khan is back (Ricardo Mantalban acted the hell out of that part), and we lose Spock (temporarily but we didn't know that at the time). I went to the movies with my parents and saw it (I was still in elementary school at the time) and my dad looked down at me and said "Are you crying?" I was like "Yes. They killed Spock." I quickly recovered of course (I've never been much of a crier...that's why I know this movie packed a powerful punch). I still get a tear in my eye even though I've seen it a thousand times (okay, maybe just 50 or so times).

I like the revolutionary types, but also for distinct good reasons. I believe the real a friendly relationship involving Shatner as well as Nemoy bled into their assignments that actually assisted sell the particular relationship between your particular heroes. Especially in the films. Your appropriate these 2 possess a distinct kind of relationship. Now i am nearly all curious to determine in the event that JJ Abrams endeavors to recrate the particular arena from Kahn. I just now don't know whenever they will be able to draw this away with all the identical kind of the law of gravity.
