What was her exact quote in the movie?

BTW, the graphic novel Debt of Honor depicts the newly demoted Captain and Doctor Taylor chilling on his yacht (a sailing one yes, but i couldnt see the bottom to see if it would fit under his saucer) awaiting the birth of the whale.. um .. pups.
He had to steal the 1701-A (!) to go fight extradimensional predators in the neutral zone, but made it back in time to see the birth and share some Chateau Picard with Gill.

Its, IMO, one of the best comics it spans from the Farragut at Tycho all the way until post-ST:IV and has lots of fun guests along the way. It only got too ambitious by trying to explain Kor's lack of head-ridges. And Kirks old half-Roumlan half Vulcan girlfriend showing up 30 years later with a grown up kid seems a little suspicious for the continuity minded (So they met in 2254.. its 2286 now.. oh, your daughter is 32? my..)

IIRC, the quote goes like this:

"You're going to your ship, I'm going to mine. Science vessel. I've got 300 years of catchup learning to do."

She never mentions that it's a space ship. Hell, since she's studying whales, it could be a submarine for all we know.

I think it probably refers to her new job chilling with the whales, changing their diapers, whatever

Is that the graphic novel where the yacht was named Edith Keeler? I think I've seen that...

Kirk has an ancient (22nd century sailing revival) schooner he rebuilt named Edith Keeler. Described in 'Dreadnought!'

However, the yacht pictured in 'Debt of Honor' couldnt be it, because it is a modern built yacht.

Kirk's schooner was wooden, and Piper stated that the 'y' word wasnt allowed because it was a manned sailing vessel, not a pleasure craft and had no powered engines save for a sealed emergency motor.

The boat in 'Debt' may have been Taylors science ship, since they were using it to follow the whales.

Oy.

Whales have calves, by the way.

i knew it was probably something dumb like that.

the novelisation of ST:IV had the probe finding the whales conversation a little dull i think.. ill look it up.

did it go on to the Klingon homeworld to see if its old friends that hump-headed whales were still there? 'We killed them.. they were troublesome' 'Do they still sing songs of the great whale hunt?'
