So, yeah, I'm looking forward to it. Uhura gets nekkid, right? (Whoda ever thought you'd type that? Nichelle Nichols isn't exactly Hally Berry).
No. Someone who is supposed to be a version of Carol Marcus gets mostly nekkid. A fact NOW recognized by Damon Lindelof as gratuitous and misogynistic.
Zoe Saldana nekkid would make me miss at least 5 minutes of the movie due to bathroom time.
Agreed. And why is that a problem. The green chick was hot in the first one - and that scene was hysterical. I think that was the point I basically realized I'm going to like this whole new universe - because they are going to do little things like that as a gift to fans of the entire Star Trek universe.
But I still don't understand a fundamental point - why do they need to touch on the old universe at all? I mean, I get that you want to give movie goers some kind of continuity, but still. I didn't need the Kobeyahi Maru (whatever) part just to be funny nor do I need constant references to a slightly change but still kinda connected to the old universe stuff. You can give me all new stuff. I'm ok with that. And I think most people would be. I wouldn't have gone near any old universe cannon in any way except the way they did with the green chick - quickly with a wink and a nod and back to the story.
But, then again, I'm an overweight lawyer in New Jersey and JJ Abrams is worth a billion dollars so what do I know.
