It's nice to hear Shatner and Nimoy together, but I don't remember the track being especially informing or entertaining. Although I laughed a lot to Shatner when he tried to use "civilized" fancy-pants words all the time. He also talked about his poetry readings... Enough said, I gave it a 6.

This is one of the funniest commentaries I've ever listened to. Shatner and Nimoy even have great chemistry when it comes to recording an audio commentary. Both men have a great sense of humor and they were a joy to listen to.

It's great to see Shatner and Nimoy talking, but when it comes to the commentary itself, it really sucks. They tell some anecdotes, trivia and (mostly unfunny) jokes involving some scenes while watching them; make some digressions in the "Philosophy of Cinema" department that aren't particularly insightful or interesting; and even spare at least one moment for over-the-top "Hollyweirdness" ("...[whales], who, God knows, may be far superior to us, we just don't know. They certainly are, as everything else, our equal..."). Perhaps they were aware that the text commentary also presented on the DVD would take care of our information needs, but then the Star Trek II DVD also had one, and that didn't prevent Nicholas Meyer from recording a great commentary.

It was good, though I expected a lot more from this commentary. It was strangely forgettable and dry at times. It is a pity, since this is the funniest "Star Trek" film ever made, and it would have been nice to have an equally fun commentary. Nimoy was the strong link here, while Shatner went on about his "demarcation lines" for each new film, which is way off-topic and irrelevent. Some good parts are there, though, such as the scene where Spock immobilizes the punk with loud music. Maybe they should have included Meyer as well to help them out in the track? 6/10
