It seems that a famous Starfleet exam will be making an appearance in the new Star Trek film. As will a famous episode of cheating on said exam. This news is doubtless going to annoy the heck out of Saavik in about 40 years.
The real Saavik I mean, not that Kirstie Allie knockoff.
UPDATE: Ugh. Kirk beat the Maru test on sex appeal? This is the problem with prequels that seek to make backstory explicit. I am still excited about this reboot of the Star Trek franchise, but it will require setting aside years of fan-driven spec, most of which is probably superior to the new canon being imposed upon us.
