In the Star Trek Movies who would probably be the 4th crew member next to the "Trinity" of Kirk, Spock, and McCoy?

Scotty? Saavik? No one?

Scott


Of course ...


He was always the other one of the group. He and McCoy were supposed to be friends. He and Spock were intellectual/technical equals in many senses. He was Kirk's essential Mr. Fixit. He was third in command of the ship.


On the back of the Star Trek TOS 365 book there is a photo of the four of them - the 'trinity' of four ...

Do you think the relationship between Doohan and Shatner played any part in there only being 3 main crew members and not 4?

No. Not really. I think that was incidental.


The trinity thing is an archetype isn't it? The threesome thing is found everywhere in literature, religion, popular culture, music etc.


Kirk = man of action - but also man in the middle


On one side his thoughtful intellect and reason = Spock


On the other side his gut instinct and passion = McCoy


Scott was the only one who came close to breaking into the trio - but he hovered just outside. He had his own separate relationships with Kirk - with Spock - with McCoy - but he didn't form one of these 'brothers' ... nearly, but not quite.

In the TV series, it would definitely be Scotty, but your question was about the movies, so I would go with Sulu.

Yeah, I was almost thinking Saavik, if she'd been in more of the films

Yes, i'd go with that - he'd risen to Captain in his own right so had increased stature

I'd say Scotty for the series. But since we're talking about the movies, I'd say it's a toss up between Scotty and Saavik.

I guess Uhura would be the 4th either likewise these days Chekov nor Sulu or McKoy, but Scotty.

I thin eventually it will be Scotty, but with the first movie the characters were still all aligning.
