Decorate Next Year’s Christmas Tree With Spock’s Painful Death by Radiation


Not every scene from a beloved movie is necessarily holiday appropriate, even if it does boast a sub-theme of friendship and collective good. You don’t see Disney busting out “Death of Bambi’s Mother” ornaments, even though it’s one of the company’s most famous moments. Amid all the Scarface merchandise out there, I have yet to see a mini-diorama of Tony Montana snorting cocaine or exploding in a hail of bullets. But Star Trek? Once again boldly going where no merchandise has gone before.

Maybe, just maybe, it’s a clever ploy to make you forget the terrible revised version of this scene from Into Darkness. In which case, I have to admit I approve.
