And that brings me to what I feel was the most important scene for Spock (and for me) in the film. It so moved me that I mentionned it in Chapter 1: the scene where Spock–defeated and depressed after his realization that his protégé, Valeris, is a traitor–is lying quietly in his quarters, clearly indulging in a very human moment of melancholy. Kirk enters and makes an effort to cheer his friend and to rally him to action.
In reply, the Vulcan turns to Kirk and says softly, “Is it possible that we two, you and I, have grown so old and inflexible that we have outlived our usefulness?”
As I said earlier, it was a very poignant question for me as well as for Spock. For not only was the Vulcan on the verge of retirement, and meditating on the fact that, at long last, the Enterprise crew’s missions together were over–but I was well aware that this was most likely the last Star Trek film for both of us. And as I turned toward Bill and uttered those words, any sense of “mask” slipped away. I honestly felt myself merge with the character, Spock… and at the moment that the Vulcan spoke to his captain, Leonard Nimoy asked the same question of Bill Shatner. I recall looking at him and wondering: “Are you thinking what I’m thinking, Bill? That this really is the end of our ‘mission’ together…?”

I like big butts and

image

I prefer larger gluteals to be sure, and Vulcans do not lie.

My colleagues will confirm my assertion

That when a certain Captain enters the room with waist-to-buttocks proportions approximating the Golden Ratio

I find it provides stimulation.

Indeed, I often find myself with the illogical urge to fondle my penis

When the buttocks in question are confined within Starfleet regulation uniform pants, for they are particularly tight-fitting.

It is an arresting image from which I find it impossible to avert my eyes.
