SKU: 10805 Category:


Kirstie Alley as Lieutenant Saavik and Captain Kirk’s son David (played by Merritt Butrick). Meyer was looking for an actress who looked beautiful enough that it was plausible a womanizer such as Kirk would fall for her, yet who could also project a sense of intelligence. Meyer liked that Butrick’s hair was blond like Besch’s and curly like Shatner’s, making him a plausible son of the two. Saavik, Spock’s protege and a Starfleet commander-in-training aboard the Enterprise. The movie was Alley’s first feature film role. Saavik cries during Spock’s funeral. Meyer said that during filming someone asked him, “‘Are you going to let her do that?’ And I said, ‘Yeah,’ and they said, ‘But Vulcans don’t cry,’ and I said, ‘Well, that’s what makes this such an interesting Vulcan.'” The character’s emotional outbursts can be partly explained by the fact that Saavik was described as of mixed Vulcan-Romulan heritage in the script, though no indication is given on film. Alley was so fond of her Vulcan ears that she would take them home with her at the end of each day.
