Yeah dude...I got the connection
But in STII, spock died...and you cared. They didn't magically bring him back the next scene. And you had one of the saddest character funerals in a movie. And STIII sucked because they took away from the emotional connection of STII.
I'm a huge star trek fan. And I've been disappointed both outings on these.
I am sure that for people that never liked the original ST, that these ones probably work.
I know that casting always has a component of name recognition in combination with ability to play the part, but in some of these movies lately, I think we've completely forgot to ask if these people can play the role.
I'm actually angry that the character was whitewashed.
