Would have probably been more tragic than villainous. Saavik was half-Romulan and Alley's Saavik displayed emotion in WOK (primarily arrogance, but she cried at Spock's funeral). Had she been in love with Kirk's wimpy son, it would have been perfect motivation, and of course mirrored Kirk's own motivation for hating the Klingons. Saavik having an epic meltdown after getting busted could well have been the most poignant scene in Star Trek history. Oh well.
