It happens that I was just watching "Search for Spock", and was reflecting during this very sequence that the Enterprise
from the early features is as good as any Trek ship ever got. Accept no substitutes.
Anyway, SFS isn't a stitch on WOK but still pretty enjoyable-- I hadn't seen it in twenty years, whereas I watch WOK a couple times every year. Kinda cheap looking, and I could never buy Reverend Jim as a scary Klingon villain, but still, decent Trek. Line of the movie belongs to McCoy: "That green-blooded son of a bitch is getting even with me for all the arguments he lost!"
I've been watching the features (I even sat through TMP for the first time in ages) on Amazon, and would have rolled straight into "Voyage Home", but it wasn't included with Prime, so I watched "Undiscovered Country" instead. Still really good...
Something I meant to mention when the Shatner/"Sabataage" thing came up in the "Beyond" thread: in "Undiscovered Country" they have Valeris explain the origin of the word "sabotage" and she really hits the (correct) pronunciation hard. I don't know if that Shatner audio was a thing back then, but I wonder if that was a dig at the Shat, in a movie he was actually starring in. Either way, pretty funny.
