On the big screen, therefore, there'd be a great deal of action-adventure plotting over the nefarious cloaking device of the Bird of Prey, the grasshopper-green Klingon warship, or the crew's efforts to barrel through the Great Barrier in order to meet the Maker, but the philosophies came off as undercooked - token oblations to the original series - and worse, the Kirk-Spock centric narratives left the rest of the cast about as resonant as Vulcan emotion.
This playfulness extends to the literary echoes from the West ” to the preoccupation with nose-size (blatantly, a phallic "displacement") from Tristram Shandy, to the excremental and olfactory exuberance of Rabelais, to Forster's Dr. Aziz, and to Proust's madeleine, which, in Midnight's Children, is transmogrified into a certain grasshopper-green chutney that serves as a key to the realms of lost time.
