Yep. I don't gain anything from knowing that that's Scotty's nephew, because his death is harrowing enough as it is. I love Nick Meyer's Trek movies, but for me his extended editions don't add anything that I can't live without, especially when we get to the GONG! show at the climax of Undiscovered Country.

Meyer didn't "make those cuts" nor does he prefer them.............


Interview: Nicholas Meyer

Interview conduced at Destination Star Trek 3 – London

TrekMovie: Star Trek II was such a different film than ‘The Motion Picture.’ How much of a challenge was it for you to take on the role of director (and un-credited writer) of Wrath of Khan?

Nicholas Meyer: I was sort of free to do what I wanted because they didn’t know what was going to work after Star Trek: The Motion Picture. So in a funny way – aside from slashing the budget – they really left me to my own devices. And I was encouraged by the cast. And I think the biggest single thing was everybody really liked the script. And since they liked the script everybody was like "OK, do that." So that is what I did. Nobody was thinking about saving the franchise, we were just thinking about making a movie.

TrekMovie: We you aware of the impact that killing off Spock was going to have?

Nicholas Meyer: Well, there were a lot of rumors and yes I got threatening letters – "If Spock dies, you die" and that sort of thing. But I don’t think people know what they really want. Things that sound bad in theory, may not be so bad when you see them worked out in practice. And so the death of Spock was such a heroic act of self-sacrifice, I think a lot of people had no trouble buying into it.

TrekMovie: Do you know if there is there is a possibility of a Blu-ray release of the director’s cut of Wrath of Khan?

Nicholas Meyer: I don’t know is the short answer. I wish there were, because I like my version – the few changes that I made I think improve the movie, and I was disappointed when they didn’t release it in Blu-ray with my changes.

Meyer is "disappointed" the director’s edition of Star Trek II (available on DVD) has not been released on Blu-ray

TrekMovie: Would you be open to talking to Paramount about releasing it on Blu-ray?

Nicholas Meyer: Oh, I am open to talking to Paramount. The question is, is Paramount open to talking to me?

I'd argue the opposite; Scotty's emotional reaction actually gains power if the identify of the kid isn't explored in a poorly executed bit of superfluous exposition.
Indeed!

Well that's just ruined my day.

R.I.P Leonard Nimoy.

You may have gone onto the final frontier but you'll never be forgotten.

God bless you sir for all the wonderful childhood memories watching Star Trek.


This scene has always been gut wrenching but it's even more so now.

Good night sweet prince.

I remember getting this collection by PM'ing it at BBY for like $10 a few years ago but haven't opened it yet. I think it's time to watch some of these and the Transformers movies he voiced acted in.

I disagree, when Scotty came through the door with his nephews body that scene made more sense and i felt his pain much more.

Nimoy's passing makes me wish more than ever that Paramount would do right by these films and release proper versions with new transfers (and Director's Cuts).

I agree, I've been putting if picking these up because of the poor transfers.
