Saavik says goodbye to Spock.

Is she guarding a secret he ought to know about?

Robin's Saavik came across as one who had a few years of field work under her belt. Kirstie's reminded me of a cadet on her first year after the academy.

To me, Robin Curtis did a better job than Kirstie Alley ever did as Saavik. In a sense that she was more believable, appearance-wise and performance-wise. And she was mentored very well by Leonard Nimoy. So to me, Leonard and Robin laid out the groundwork on the way Vulcans are portrayed.

I agree, Curtis looked and acted Vulcan while Alley didn't even have Vulcan shaped brows (something that also annoyed me about T'Pol in the first two Enterprise seasons). Curtis' Saavik is one of my favourite Vulcans.

Saavik was a awesome vulcan. Kirsty Alley should never been allowed to play a vulcan. She could of ised some tips from Saavic. Best female vulcan ever.

Saavic was not played by Kristy Alley. The actress who played Saavic was AWESOME. Kristy Alley played a vulcan captain if I remeber right. She...Kristy had way too much emotion for a full blooded vulcan in my opinion. Her and Saavic are not the same actress.

Lieutenant JG Saavik is a fictional character in the Star Trek universe. She first appeared in the film Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) played by Kirstie Alley. Robin Curtis took on the role after a salary dispute caused Alley to drop out of the sequel, Star Trek III: The Search for Spock

(1984) [citation needed] . Curtis also made a brief cameo appearance as Saavik in the next film, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986).

The artwork you did apperas to portray saavic as Robin Cutis from the movie search for spock...not Kirsty Alley from wrath of khan. I'm not perfect on my trekkie knowledge, but I what I told you is correct. Google it. Do your research. Anyway I like you work.

Yes I know she played Saavic in wrath of khan. I just don't think she was very good as a vulcan. Robin Cutis was amazing as Saavic .just my opinion dear.

Beautifuuuuul! I love how you kept Spock looking his usual logical self, but with a hint of emotion that he's just DYING to let out. Or is that just me reading too much into it, lol.
For a second I seriously thought this was a screencap, it's that realistic.

It's a shame that couple got so little screen time. Oh well, we'll always have the novels :3

Oh--and a PS ('cos I commented once already XD)--why do you think they totally cut Saavik out of the movie storylines post-4? She would have been fun to see around again... I mean, why create a character who's so vital to another's existance and just to leave them without any further resolution?

(Sorry, I like to write as well as draw, so that whole plot bothers me, haha)...

Anywho! Awesome work! :)

You do know the scuttle-but was that she was his daughter by the Romulan Ship commander from the claoking device incident, right?

Nah, not true. And I do love the Pandora Principle and Vulcan's Heart and to me they'll always be as good as canon, the movie writers actually wrote and filmed the scenes where she tells Spock she's pregnant with his child from the Pon Farr. I don't think they'd have done that if she was supposed to be his daughter. Ever.

Well that is certainly true, why didn't they get put in the film? That would have been a really interesting relationship to develop.

TheKiliki Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2011
It was put in the film, but it got cut out due to time constraints. That's actually why in the fourth film Saavik stays behind on Vulcan with Amanda (Spock's mother) --- because she's supposed to be pregnant with his child.

I've heard that but I don't think the dates add up. In the novelization, Saavik was around 14 when Spock found her.

Oh well, either way I'm glad it wasn't Saavik in the end who betrayed him. It would have so much more sad that way.

Absolutely stunning. I had my own character once, but there were fundamental purist ST fans that felt she never "fit in" within the ST universe. I'm iffy about bringing her back from the dead...I have a lot of unpleasant memories of those whom I chatted with called her "retarded". (I shouldn't have taken that as a personal affront but my heart was put into her character, so it was hard not to feel attached.)

I cannot figure out why they dropped this story line. It was the perfect way to get another very desired character and keep Spock on the Enterprise. Lots of potential for character and relationship development here

Nice picture. Better than the movie I think.

Apparently, there's a novel planned written by Margaret Wander Bonanno. Maybe it will explore the relationship a bit more. Pity is it won't be out until 2011!

Fabulous work, as usual. And the secret is that she's pregnant with Spock's child... :)

You did a superb job with her hair, the lighting and the texture are perfect. I know her character first came on screen during the eighties but I've always thought her hair looked as ridiculous on a Vulcan as T';Pol's skin-tight outfits... :D

Great job!! But you always do fantastic work. Saavik is dead on with the screenshot, and I like the slight artistic style to Spock's eyes. They seem to have more of their own message in this. But they may be me reading into it. ;)

The lighting is wonderful, not just to show her eyes (they do hold a wonderful message), but for some reason, I love the look of Spock's jaw in this: the hint of beard, the slight lighting to it in emphasis, and strength.

(On a personal note, I thought they did a better job with the line of her eyebrows in 4 than in 3, as well as her hair.)

I'm so glad to see you doing more Saavik pieces! Especially with Spock.

Can I post it to s&saa.com?

PS: To add on to the thread discussion, Spock and Saavik did marry in the novel "Vulcan's Heart". There's also a few other stories about their marriage. You can find them on "[link]".
