This is the Trek film for lit nerds. Moby Dick meets A Tale of Two Cities and they are not shy about the parallels between the books and the film.
Majel Barret is not the computer voice in this one. I find the lack of Majel… disconcerting. She just is the computer.
Also: never before noticed Spock’s reaction to being told Kirk has a son
in the most dry tone ever
like ‘you had a different girl every week when you were captaining the enterprise you having a kid is not shocking did you not pay attention to sex ed.’
