Robin Curtis (born June 15, 1956) is an American actress, most notable for taking over the role of Vulcan Lieutenant Saavik from Kirstie Alley in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. Robin Curtis had arrived in Los Angeles in 1982; she made friends with the head of Paramount’s casting department, who recommended her for the role. Nimoy met with Curtis, and gave her the assignment the next day. Star Trek III: The Search for Spock is a 1984 American science fiction film released by Paramount Pictures. The film is the third feature film of the Star Trek science fiction franchise and is the center of a three-film story arc that begins with Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and concludes with Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. After the death of Spock (Leonard Nimoy) the crew of the USS Enterprise returns to Earth. When James T. Kirk (William Shatner) learns that Spock’s spirit, or katra, is held in the mind of Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy (DeForest Kelley), Kirk and company steal the Enterprise to return Spock’s body to his home planet. The crew must also contend with hostile Klingons, led by Kruge (Christopher Lloyd), bent on stealing the secrets of a powerful terraforming device. Paramount commissioned the film after positive critical and commercial reaction to The Wrath of Khan. Nimoy directed, the first Star Trek cast member to do so. David Marcus (Merritt Butrick)—Kirk’s son, a key scientist in Genesis’ development—and Lieutenant Saavik (Robin Curtis) are investigating the Genesis planet on board the science vessel Grissom. Discovering an unexpected life form on the surface, Marcus and Saavik transport to the planet. They find that the Genesis Device has resurrected Spock in the form of a child, although his mind is not present. Marcus admits that he used unstable “protomatter” in the construction of the Genesis Device, meaning that Spock is rapidly aging and the planet will be destroyed within hours.
