I need to talk about how much I loved this scene in the new movie. ITS THE EXACT SAME SCENE, only FLIPPED. Not only in characters’ situation, but in direction too! Even with the flip, Spock and Kirk are on the same side of the scene in BOTH versions. JJ, I love you so much for this and all the other references to Wrath of Khan in Into Darkness. (Even Spock yelling Khaaaaaaan! Despite the fact it was a bit silly :) ).
Oh Bones :3
The only time Leonard Nimoy ever appeared in public as Spock? The 1967 Orange Pear Blossom festival in Medford, OR.
