This is probably the saddest thing that ever and will ever have occurred in all Star Trek movies and series....
kirk was my favorite captain having to make hard calls unlike the TNG  push a button and fix a problem . I'm not a star trek pro but what i pieced together was not the original enterprise  classed as a heavy cruiser "

some of my favorite quotes from:TNG

Q: You judge yourselves against the pitiful adversaries you've encountered so far - the Romulans, the Klingons. They're nothing compared to what's waiting. Picard - you are about to move into areas of the galaxy containing wonders more incredible than you can possibly imagine - and terrors to freeze your soul.

Capt. Picard: I understand what you've done here, Q. But I think the lesson could have been learned without the loss of 18 members of my crew.
Q: If you can't take a little bloody nose, maybe you ought to go back home and crawl under your bed. It's not safe out here. It's wondrous, with treasures to satiate desires both subtle and gross. But it's not for the timid.
"Everything you've learned at the Academy was to prepare you for shipboard life. How to handle the instruments, how to work with dozens of different races, what to do when meeting new ones. But nothing can teach you about that's out there. Out there are things that are far more terrible than what the human mind could understand, and far more beautiful than it could comprehend. You make a single wrong move, you get your friends killed, your Captain killed, your ship killed. But don't worry. You'll get the hang of it. In time..."

(Line Admiral David Metlesits, United Earth First Fleet, to his daughter, Chief Petty Officer Suliko Metlesits, Starfleet)
When Kirk killed his "wife"... that was one quiet movie theatre back in '84.  Great depiction
Thank you very much!
that was a sad scene for me.i was also very pissed cus they destroyed the big E.
But it seved as the best example of the comraderie/brotherhood between Kirk and Spock. Kirk sacrified everything to save his friend!
"You were our sister,
Our strength,and our pride.
Only Gaia may know why,
Still we will get by...."
Sad but beautiful...
