Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast
Standard Orbit 228: A Tale of Two Saaviks

A Character Review

This week on Standard Orbit hosts Zach Moore, Hayley Stoddart, and Ken Tripp discuss the character of Saavik and the actors that portrayed her. This fan-favorite Vulcan is fun to explore from her origins to the very unique styles brought to her by Kirstie Alley and Robin Curtis.

The Standard Orbit team explore the perspectives, the history, and the approaches taken by Myer and Nimoy in making Saavik a part of the crew only to be written off and reinvented with Valeris (Kim Cattrall)  in Star Trek VI.  We invite you to explore LT. Saavik and give us your feedback and theories on the Babel Conference. Boldly Listen!
