||A remarkable look at a different culture. This added yet more complexities to the nature of Vulcans, who had already become a complex people. You get a sense of something ancient and different that the Federation itself will never touch. The story was really about personal things, Spock when stripped of his logic; Kirk's friendship and how he cannot risk Spock's life (twice), although he does risk his command; McCoy as ever finding a slight sense of superiority out of it, but showing a real concern for Spock's life; and even Nurse Chapel. The fight scenes were staged well and seemed convincing, while the weapons used might have been strange, but they seemed to be workable. It may have been an excuse for two of the main characters to fight each other, but the reason was sufficient and so it worked. Of course, Spock grinning from ear to ear then catching himself doing so, was the classic moment. The last scene settled the story back down, wrapping everything up very neatly. The new visualisations, clearly inspired by TSFS, were very effective, while not going too far. Leonard Nimoy, as ever, puts in a very good performance. So good writing and good acting (and now good visualisations). Excellently done.
