Hard core STAR TREK Imagination Connoissuer, who identifies as Enterprise-H, insists there are three films you must watch together when it comes to Star Trek movies: WRATH OF KHAN, SEARCH FOR SPOCK and VOYAGE HOME. Agree or disagree?

Dear Sommelier of Sci-fi,
First, , there … are … FOUR Star Trek movies.
I heard that someone requested that you watch “The Wrath of Khan” with Elizabeth. Please, PLEASE have her watch “The Search for Spock” and “The Voyage Home” too.
I don’t know if she watches these episodes so don’t read this out loud if you think that it may influence her judgment.
These are just 3 acts of a single movie. The curse of popularity dictates that most people only watch (or know of) “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few”, but not “The needs of the few outweigh the needs of the many”. Both statements are equally flawed and dangerous. So here is my interpretation.
You combine them in a “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts” to get a message which has been a constant throughout Berman Star Trek. Sulu pretending to be D’Artagnan or Archer’s dog Porthos.
“The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few” becomes “One for all”. (The basic tenet which anyone who believes in democracy should believe in to one extent or another.)
“The needs of the few outweigh the needs of the many” becomes “All for One”. (The civil liberties angle of that which no majority has got the right to force a minority to follow.)
In short “One for all and all for one.”
Secondly, the same person said that Discovery’s Pike was the most heroic save for Kirk. I am very curious whether this individual read “Early Voyages” given that he said that he read a lot of comics and how the Pike from this comic and Discovery comare. “The Flat, Gold Forever” is quite the poignant story even if I think that it could be even more so.
I think that this letter is getting long enough as it is so I’ll leave you with a choice for my next letter’s topic. 1) Early Voyages/Kurtzman Trek/Expanded Universe 2) A moral quandary 3) Observations based on the game Judgment Rites if Willow, or other members of the community exploring Star Trek, has no interest in me spoiling it for her (or has already played it) 4) Starfleet Museum
P.S.: I get most of my comics through Eaglemoss but “Enter the Wolves” is not available on their website and I don’t know when or if it will be. The same goes for Amazon and I don’t know if your official comic store can get you it. Should you so desire I can get you a link.
