Forget the phasers, the funky aliens and the final frontiers; the real cornerstone of the Star Trek universe is the relationship between Kirk and Spock. Theirs is one of the definitive bromances to ever grace the big screen, and it’s never better than in this brilliant scene from The Wrath of Khan - a film that is justifiably lauded as the best of the bunch. Nimoy and Shatner are simply superb here, delivering an emotional gut punch to fans with a flurry of poignant dialogue including the pointy eared alien’s claim that “the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few…or the one” – a sentence that has become something of a tagline for the franchise ever since.
