Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) Poster

Kirstie Alley: Saavik



  • Saavik : Admiral, may I ask you a question?

    Kirk : What's on your mind, Lieutenant?

    Saavik : The Kobayashi Maru, sir.

    Kirk : Are you asking me if we're playing out that scenario now?

    Saavik : On the test, sir... will you tell me what you did? I would really like to know.

    McCoy : Lieutenant, you are looking at the only Starfleet cadet who ever beat the no-win scenario.

    Saavik : How?

    Kirk : I reprogrammed the simulation so it was possible to rescue the ship.

    Saavik : What?

    David Marcus : He cheated.

    Kirk : I changed the conditions of the test; got a commendation for original thinking. I don't like to lose.

    Saavik : Then you never faced that situation... faced death.

    Kirk : I don't believe in the no-win scenario.

  • [after allowing the simulated Enterprise to be destroyed] 

    Saavik : Permission to speak freely, sir?

    Kirk : Granted.

    Saavik : I do not believe this was a fair test of my command abilities.

    Kirk : And why not?

    Saavik : Because... there was no way to win.

    Kirk : A no-win situation is a possibility every commander may face. Has that never occurred to you?

    Saavik : No, sir, it has not.

    Kirk : And how we deal with death is at least as important as how we deal with life, wouldn't you say?

    Saavik : As I indicated, Admiral, that thought had not occurred to me.

    Kirk : Well, now you have something new to think about. Carry on.

  • Saavik : [speaking to Spock in Vulcan]  He's never what I expect, sir.

    Spock : What surprises you, Lieutenant?

    Saavik : He's so - human.

    Spock : Nobody's perfect, Saavik.

  • [first lines] 

    Saavik : Captain's log: Stardate 8130.3. Starship Enterprise on training mission to Gamma Hydra, section 14, coordinates 22-87-4. Approaching Neutral Zone; all systems normal and functioning.

    Sulu : Leaving section 14 for section 15.

    Saavik : Standby. Project parabolic course to avoid entering Neutral Zone.

    Sulu : Aye, captain.

  • Saavik : You lied!

    Spock : I exaggerated.

    Kirk : Hours instead of days! Now we have minutes instead of hours!

  • Saavik : Trouble with the nebula, sir. All that static discharge and gas will cloud our visual display. Tactical won't function, and shields will be useless!

    Spock : Sauce for the goose, Mr Saavik - the odds will be even!

  • Saavik : Humor. It is a difficult concept. It is not logical.

    Kirk : We learn by doing.

  • Kirk : Time?

    Saavik : Three minutes, thirty seconds.

    Kirk : Distance from Reliant?

    Chekov : 4000 kilometers.

    Sulu : We're not going to make it, are we?

    [Kirk turns to look at David, who slowly shakes his head] 

  • [after being surrounded by Klingons in a starship simulator] 

    Saavik : Any suggestions, Admiral?

    Kirk : Prayer, Mr. Saavik. The Klingons don't take prisoners.
