Why was Saavik on the Grissom?

I didn't like it when Saavik said David was like his father. She got a little emotional there. Plus, did she REALLY know Kirk and Marcus THAT well?

yeah Saavik didnt have enough reference to make that comment at all... and i dont think he was that much like kirk.. thought she was nuts when she said that... just figured she was trying to make him feel better... but then agian that would be illogical for a vulcan


when granting field commisions, its more a "right person for the job" sorta thing. So rank and/or status someone has makes no difference. It's alway been as such. Pike( a firm believer in kirk) knew he was what was needed to prevail.

I figured the Grissom towed Kirstie Alley into spacedock, then picked up the slimmer version of Saavik for the mission to Genesis Planet.

I think another question to ask would be:
If Starfleet was so concerned about Genesis and its effects, making it "forbidden" and a highly sensitive matter, why would there be no warships or other vessels on patrol in and around the Mutara sector?  That's what I have trouble with.  You'd think that Starfleet would have more security and personell in that area to guard against hostile vessels approaching... and even other Starfleet personell who didn't have clearance to be there.  In the end, that's exactly why the Klingons and the stolen Enterprise were able to fly right to Genesis with no trouble at all.


In fact, now that I think about it, important Starfleet facilities and starships have ALWAYS been easy targets throughout Star Trek's movies and different series.  How many times did someone successfully board and takeover  the Enterprise or Voyager?

I finally thought up a response.


If I remember correctly, some novels try to explain some of her aperent emotional outburts, such as that, or crying in STII by saying she is half Vulcan, half Romulan. Since nothing denies these ideas, I don't see why we can't believe it is so for now.

I think it's reasonable to assume that for David to be able to
explore The Genesis Planet, that Carol had to deal with all of
the funerals, inquests and other bureacratic red tape, making his
investigation possible ...

Is this really surprising, since as this article points out, Starfleet is clueless about how a military organization works.
